Your Church Library/Media Center

The church library is a mission of the church run by volunteers. Our goal is to make quality resources available to those seeking to enrich their faith.

Bring your children or grandchildren to find books that teach Christian values, help you open talks with them about important ideas , entertaining them at the same time.

Our children’s books are marked for the Accelerated Reading Program to indicate reading level.

The library introduces to youth of all ages quality literature and movies.

“The Prayer of a Church Librarian”

“God of all knowledge and wisdom grant that the resources and materials offered
in our library will give Your advice and teachings so that those who read and use the resources may wrap themselves in Your teaching from head to foot, and wear Your ways like a scarf around their neck.

And whenever they rest, Your teachings will guard them, and when they wake in the morning your advice will tell them what’s next.”

Proverbs 6:20-23        Paraphrased by Bev Parobek
