Our Church Library, located at the end of the hall on the second floor, provides resources for all ages. We offer books on coping with losses like divorce, death, health challenges, etc. Inspirational selections include prayers, poems, biographies, and a variety of devotional readings and studies. Biblical characters and scriptural theme-based studies as well as Biblical commentaries are available for individuals and leaders of small groups. There is a good selection of novels for youth and adults and beautiful picture books for our younger readers. The church history files and scrapbooks are also located here. The library is a comfortable place for small groups to meet, or an individual to prepare a Sunday School lesson or presentation. It is a quiet place to read or to preview a DVD and is open when the church building is open. Members are invited to check out a variety of books and audiovisuals to enjoy at home and then return to the Library for others to share.
