Library Book Review

Hope for the Separated – Wounded Marriages Can Be Healed,” by Gary Chapman speaks to marriages that are in a very hard place.  Yet Gary says, “Separation places you in an arena in which you can develop a new understanding of yourself and your spouse.  Separation is not necessarily the beginning of the end.  It may be only the beginning!”  If you’re separated, you may not feel like reconciling.  But through small, simple steps, Dr. Chapman shows that you may be able to achieve reconciliation with your mate.  Assignments are given to encourage growth both as individuals and as a couple.  Find it in the Family Life 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.  Everyone is asked to begin worship in the auditorium (adults and children).  Parents should accompany their smaller children to the basement as well as children who have not attended before.  Before you return upstairs, be sure to indicate to the people at the door if you would prefer us to keep your young person till you return to get them or if it is alright to let them go after the adult worship is dismissed.

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.
