We have materials for adults, for men and women, for children, for teens, and for Seniors. We have fiction books spanning every genre, theology books that delve into life’s deepest questions, books on prayer and discipleship, and many commentaries and other resources that will help you dig deeper into the Bible. We also have a collection of classic and contemporary videos and audio resources, including dramas and comedies as well as non-fiction documentaries. We have a small bookstore where you can buy new books recommended by Pastor Eric and books tied our current focus as a church.

Library News and Updates

Books on Immigration!

 
In our country today, the topic of immigration is unfortunately a polarizing issue, and many Christians want to understand how to apply their faith to questions relating to immigration. This Sunday (October 15) the FPC Library will be featuring two books that seek to offer a Biblical view of immigration from civil yet markedly different perspectives.
 
The books are The Immigration Crisis by James K. Hoffmeier and Christians at the Border by M. Daniel Carroll R. You can find them in our online catalog here. We only have one copy of each book, so get to the library early if you are interested in either book!
 
Don’t worry if the books are already checked out when you arrive, though. If a book is checked out, a sheet will be started so that people can sign up to check out the book next. Then, you can browse our other books (Fiction, Biographies, Youth, Children’s, Commentaries, and more) and our DVDs.
 
There is a Town Hall Meeting in Fellowship Hall this Sunday, but the library will still be open. Stop by and see us before or after the service! If you have any questions, please send us an email here.
 
 


Parenting Books!

 
Do you have any questions about different parenting strategies and ways to parent? Have you been looking for resources on a specific topic related to parenting? If so (or even if you haven’t), stop by the FPC library this Sunday (October 8) and take a look at our numerous books on parenting and families! The library will be displaying these books on the tables outside the library in Fellowship Hall. 
 
Some of the books that will be displayed this Sunday are The Dad Difference by Josh McDowell, You and Your Child by Charles Swindoll, Getting the Best Out Of Your Kids by Kevin Leman, Boundaries With Kids by Henry Cloud, Faithful Parents, Faithful Kids by Greg Johnson, What Kids Need Most In A Mom by Patricia Rushford, The Five Love Languages of Teenagers by Gary Chapman and many more.
 
These books aren’t in our online catalog yet, but you can check out our other books (Fiction, Biographies, Commentaries, Youth, Children’s) and our DVDs in the catalog here.
 
Stop by and see us before or after the service on Sunday in Fellowship Hall! Any questions? Contact us here.


Resources on Apologetics

 
This Sunday (October 1), the FPC library display table will have books and resources on apologetics! If you have any questions about your faith or know someone who has questions, stop by and take a look at the books!
 
We will be highlighting books by Lee Strobel, Timothy Keller, Josh McDowell, Sean McDowell, John MacArthur, Francis Schaeffer, David Noebel, and many others. 
 
You can take a look at some of our Apologetics books in our online catalog here. Not all of them are catalogued yet, so you’ll have to stop by in person to see all the options.
 
We are located in Fellowship Hall and open before and after the service. We also have many other books and resources on marriage, parenting, and science as well as specific books for children, and youth. Don’t forget to take a look at our substantial fiction section and our array of DVDs and biographies!
 
Come stop by and see us on Sunday! If you have any questions or have a specific book or topic in mind, please email us here!


Books on Revival and Spiritual Renewal!

This year our church has been focusing on revival. The FPC Library has helped further this goal by selling pastor and staff-picked revival-oriented books in the Library Bookstore. If you’re interested in any of these books, stop by Fellowship Hall on Sunday and take a look!
 
As part of this focus, this week the library will be highlighting books about revival and spiritual renewal on the library display tables. Some specific books that we have available are Experiencing God by Henry BlackabyA Closer Walk by Catherine MarshallTrue Spirituality by Francis SchaefferWhat’s So Amazing About Grace? and Disappointment With God by Philip YanceyGlorious Intruder by Joni Eareckson TadaThe Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard, and many more.
 
Unfortunately, while many of these books can be found in our online catalog not all of them are cataloged yet. However, progress is being made in the non-fiction section and now all the biographies are catalogued. If you are interested in the biographies or our other books and media (DVDS, audio books, etc.), please check out our catalog and browse our selection.
 
Stop by this week at the Library in Fellowship Hall and check out our selection of books on revival and spiritual renewal as well as our fiction, biographies, commentaries, reference books, youth books, children’s books, DVDs, and other media.
