Check Out the Church Library

The Church Library located in the Fellowship Hall has lots of inspirational books and DVDs. The newest ones include 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper; Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom; and Time Piece and Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans.

We have shelves of books for women, men, children, and family, about faith, healthy living, history, and more. There are poetry collections, novels, and Bible studies. Some are recent publications and some are “older than dirt” (located in the “Older Than Dirt” section).

It’s easy to borrow them: just sign on the sign-out sheet located by the library door and cross out your signature when you return it.

Church World Service Clean Up Kits

The ABW group is trying to put together 3 cleanup kits for Church World Service through the months of April, May & June. Below is a list of items we will need for EACH 5 gal. bucket. There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer and we would ask everyone to sign up for a specific item so we don’t have too many of the same things being brought. These buckets are used for any disaster that strikes and the warehouse was wiped out of all they had after Hurricane Sandy. We would also ask that you stick to the sizes specified or all will not fit in the bucket with the top on.

Thanks
