We are excited to be able to provide a library for our members and welcome all men, women, and children to enjoy the space.

We have approximately 750 books in our library, that cover a wide range of topics and fiction for everyone to enjoy, learn, and grow from in their Christian walk.  Our library is broken down into categories: Children’s Books; Fiction; Christian Living; Life & Times of Jesus; Poetry; Max Lucado; Prayer; Grief, Loss, & Hard Times; Church Staff Resources; Family and Couples; Church History; Inspiring True Stories; New Testament; Old Testament; Commentaries and teaching helps; Devotions; and Bible Studies.

Each RED & Black tab will have an online synopsis of our library inventory so you may browse the books by categories and descriptions before you come in to check them out.  You will also have a map of the library showing where everything may be found as well as markings on the shelves to make finding your books an easy process.

Books may be checked out for reasonable periods of time; example: our devotionals are mostly yearly so you may have them for a year; our bible studies are by sessions; each one is a different length; so they may be checked out for the length of the study; we also will have a few of pastor’s resources that cannot be checked out, but can be used in the library.  Fiction, and the other categories may be checked out for a two- week time period; but can be renewed for longer.

Each book has a card inside for you to fill out when checking out. Please place this card in the brown file box on the desk.

When returned, we will restock the book.

You may return books to either the box in the church office or the library room (where you can also find a box).

This helps us keep track of them.

We will accept donations of Christian books at any time and may be brought to the church office. 

If you are interested in volunteering at the church library; feel free to contact Cathy.
