No single ministry resource has the potential of defining discipleship for a congregation than that of a church library ministry.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Tim. 3:16-17)

Our library is a vital part of our church, and filled with an excellent range of . . . . .

  • study resources
  • children’s materials
