New in Your Church Library
The library has a new reading corner complete with a comfortable chair, a table, and a lamp. Come visit the library for your reading and stay for the cozy reading corner. You can even bring your kids to read in the children’s section.
The library staff and library committee welcome gifts to our library collection that further our mission to provide materials in the United Methodist tradition that will promote spiritual growth and study in our Christian faith, fellowship, witness, and service.
One of our current goals is to update and enlarge our DVD collection. Any recommendations to the Library Committee, from you, or from your Small Group, will be considered.
Your continued support of your Church Library is appreciated.
