So many book donations!

Several new books have recently been added to our church library collection. Like most of our collection, these books were donated by church members. The library committee is happy to accept donated books. Because of space considerations we are not able to keep all the books that we receive. What we can not use is passed on to the public libraries for their book sales.

Here are the titles of our latest additions:

“The Way; walking in the footsteps of Jesus” by Adam Hamilton

“A Heart Like His; intimate reflections on the life of David” by Beth Moore

“Adventures in Missing the Point; how the culture-controlled church neutered the gospel” by Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo

“How to Rescue the Earth Without Worshipping Nature; a Christian’s call to save creation” by Tony Campolo.

Visit the church library/resource room to find these and other provocative and inspiring books.

All New!!! The Disciple Map

It’s so exciting to launch our new Disciple Map.

The Disciple Map is a tool you can access that will help you narrow down your gifts and discover some great opportunities here at FUMCWP!

Some opportunities you may find can be small group studies, assisting in our Children’s Ministry, serving on a local or mission abroad and so much more.

It is something you can access many times as well as share!

We hope it helps as a guide in your faith journey.

Devotional Books

Our church resource room/library has a large selection of devotional books. Whether you are looking for inspiration for your own private daily devotion time, or need ideas for a group devotional, there are books that will help you.

Here are a few titles to give you an idea of what is available: “Amazing Grace; 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions”, “Outdoors with God; devotional thoughts on the Great Outdoors”, “Healing After Loss; Daily Meditations for Working Through Grief.”

There are devotional books specifically for women, men, couples, teachers and grandparents, just to mention a few. So take time to browse the shelves in our church library for a book that will help you deepen your faith.

Book-loving women meet up!

An enthusiastic group of book-loving women meet in our church library every month. We share our love of reading by discussing a wide variety of books – novels, histories, memoirs, classics, mysteries, nonfiction – we have read them all. Our discussion is always lively and insightful. The value of a book club is that we are exposed to books we may never have considered reading on our own … and then they become some of our favorites. The group consists of church members and non-church members.

Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 12th at 10:00 AM. Our book for this month is “Everyone Brave is Forgiven” by Chris Cleave. It tells a powerful story of courage, love, forgiveness and bravery during World War II. Everyone is welcome!
