When Shelves are Not Dusty...

by Elizabeth Allan

Our church library is down the hall from my office, which can be quite distracting.  A banquet of books beckon me from my desk. And, because it is a church library, the books are filled with words written by other believers! Some of them challenge the way I think, some of them bring half-wrought ideas to fruition, and some are just fun to read. There are books that tell me of how brothers and sisters have forsaken everything to follow the same Savior who has called me. History interweaves the holy work of God through His people through the centuries and into my heart.  Well, then the phone rings and I need to get back to work!

Have you been to our Library? 

What kind of book are you looking for? Neatly broken into categories, there are a lot of choices!

I have been asked to share the categories with you to make it easier when you come to look:

Come on by either before or after services on Sunday, or Tuesdays - Fridays noon to five.

Pray for Our Outreach Ministries:
Please pray for the Shine Initiative.
This ministry allows us to enter schools and build
relationships with staff and students.
+  The staff would be comfortable with us, and
    relationships would be built quickly.
+  God would provide wisdom as to how each volunteer
    should be involved. That we wouldn't take on too much
    right away, but be wise about our commitments.
+  God would open our eyes to ways we can help,
    and provide the resources to do it well.
+  That the kids and staff would see Jesus in us, and that
    we would be doorways of access to Him.
