God's Open House

January 2024 Library News!

In 2024 the library is open for business! We have many books for all ages on many topics to help you on your journey.

After over 20 years of being on the library committee Connie Bradley has retired. She has been a very valuable member of our committee and made many contributions to the organization and function of our library, including the establishment of the fiction bookshelf in the Social Hall and making curtains for the library tables. We have appreciated her service and company and wish her well in her retirement.

Good news! Darlene Jacobsen, our church’s published author, is joining our library committee. We welcome Darlene to our crew which also consists of Jill Waselik and Jennifer Grenier. 

Several books have been recently added this year to our collection including books of former pastor Carolyn Gillette’s hymns as well as three memorial books for PW women who entered the Church Triumphant in 2023. They are:

Every Moment Holy by Douglas McKelvey. This is a book of liturgies for everyday activities including “Feasting with Friends, ” A Liturgy for Laundering,” and “Gardening” to remind us that are lives are full of sacred moments.

Practicing: Changing Yourself to Change the World by Kathy Escobar. Pastor Kathy inspires and challenges readers with practical encouragement to live their faith through real action using 10 transformational practices.  Extremely interactive, relational, and practical, Practicing can be read alone or discussed in a small group.

The Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory: American Evangelism by Tim Albert. This current bestseller paints an expansive portrait of the American evangelical movement retracing the arc of the modern evangelical movement, placing political and cultural inflection points in the context of church teaching and traditions.

The library continues to be a cozy place for small meetings that can be reserved through the church office. We hope you will visit us in 2024!
