History of ABC’s in the Pacific Union
The history of Adventist Book Centers traces back to the autumn of 1868 when a small group of women began a prayer circle to petition God to work in the lives of their children, neighbors, and friends. They formed the Vigilant Missionary Society to share Adventist literature. This venture became the Tract and Missionary Society, with a global reach. In 1924, Book and Bible Houses offered the first Adventist literature storefronts. They grew into Adventist Book Centers by 1972, with a wider range of books and soybean-based health food products. We have seven great ABCs in the Pacific Union: Northern California has two (one in Pleasant Hill and one in Sacramento), and there are locations in Arizona, Central California, Pacific Union College, Southeastern California, and Southern California. They are vibrant, fully stocked stores with wonderful Christian resources and all your favorite foods.
