Library Book Review

You’ll find power in Wonderful Names of Our Lord – power to be claimed as you call Him by each one.  From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible paints a flawless and multifaceted portrait of our Sure Foundation, Light of the World, and Alpha and Omega.  This book describes many of these names of God and each is accompanied by a Scripture reference and a brief devotion.  In our busy lives we sometimes lose our way when it comes to worship.  This book can point you in the right direction!  Find it in the Jesus Christ section.


We have an attended nursery for small children during morning worship periods in room 2.  We also have a training room at the rear of the auditorium where parents can stay with their little ones while worshipping.

A children’s worship is scheduled to begin near the start of the worship lesson time.  Children’s Worship is intended to provide a time of worship for children age 3 thru Grade 3 and to encourage families with children.

Free CD’s of the Sunday morning sermons are available from Joel Ribar.  Be sure to specify the date desired.  MP3 copies of sermons are also available at the church web site.

The Library is open after classes and the worship period.  Don’t forget to return any overdue books to the library.  There is a book return box located in the entry way next to the picture board.
