Library Raffle, New Books, and Free Stuff!

The FPC Library has a lot of exciting things going on for Re-Connect Sunday (September 10)! Join us at the library table in Fellowship Hall to participate in a raffle, check out new books, get some free stuff, and sign your children up for the new library prize program!
This summer, the library has been working on going through and cataloging the books in the back room that have never been shelved or displayed before. We have added over 100 new books to our collection and we will be displaying many of them on the library table. Come check out our new non-fiction titles by authors like Philip Yancey, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Max Lucado, Lee Strobel and many more.
The Biography section of the library has now been completely catalogued in our online catalog. We have many amazing biographies of Christian life, faith, trials, and triumphs about people like Corrie Ten Boom, Martin Luther, Joni Eareckson Tada, Eric Liddell, Peter Marshall, and other Christian figures. Search for Biography in our online catalog to see them all and pick out ones to check out on Sunday!
On Re-Connect Sunday, kids can stop by the library table and start our expanded library prize program (You can read more about that here). The library will also be holding a raffle for an Amazon gift card. All you have to do is stop by the table and fill out a raffle card. We will also be giving out lots of free stuff like some books by influential Christian authors and a pamphlet from one of FPC’s previous pastors, Albert J. Lindsey. Make sure to stop by and take advantage of all the wonderful things that our library has to offer!

FPC Needs an Adult Discipleship and Outreach Coordinator


We are looking for someone to help encourage adult discipleship at First Pres by overseeing our small group ministry, running our Alpha program, exploring ways to connect with the church neighborhood, and helping with programs that contribute to the outreach goals at First Pres.  This is a part time (18 hours per week) position.  If interested please submit resume and cover letter to                       Karen Ackerson or call the church office if you have any questions.  


Expanded Library Prize Program!

This Fall the FPC library is expanding and updating the library prize program! Now, everyone from age 4 to 8th grade can participate and win prizes by reading books.
Every time children and youth read 5 books they get to pick out a prize! Children and youth will use a reading log to track how many books they read. If children are in 2nd grade or younger, they may have books read to them. 
The main goals of this program are to encourage reading for fun and to foster spiritual growth in our children and youth. In view of these goals, in order to count toward a reward, books read must be the Bible or from the church library. Parents of young children can use this prize program to start a reading time with their family. Reading together helps children in a multitude of ways and grows the bond between family members.
The library also has new prizes in addition to the prizes from the older prize program especially to celebrate the expansion of the prize program!
Stop by the library table in Fellowship Hall on Re-Connect Sunday (September 10) to receive more detailed information and pick up a reading log.
