Library News and Updates

Books on Revival and Prayer!

 
As many of you know, this Saturday (November 4) is a Solemn Assembly in order to pray for revival. As part of our church’s focus on revival and prayer, this week (Sunday, November 5) the FPC Library will be highlighting books about revival, spiritual renewal, and prayer on the library display tables. We hope that these books will be a good resource for people looking to learn more about revival, spiritual renewal, and prayer even after the Solemn Assembly.
 
Many of our prayer and revival books (especially our new ones) are in our online catalog. In addition, we have a selection of prayer books for children that may be helpful in involving children in our focus of praying for revival. You can also find our fiction, biographies, commentaries, reference books, youth books, children’s books, DVDs, and other media listed here.
 
The FPC Library is located in Fellowship Hall and is open every Sunday before and after the service. Do you have questions or need help locating a specific book or topic? Please send us an email here.


Books on the Reformation!

 
This Sunday (October 29), the FPC Library will be displaying materials on the Protestant Reformation. This is because October 31 (All Hallows’ Eve) is the 500th anniversary of the day that Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church.
 
The library display tables will have many materials on the Reformation (which you can take a look at in our online catalog here) including adult and youth biographies of Martin Luther, a DVD on his life, and books about the theology of the Reformation. Make sure to come by and take a look at all of the options!
 
One especially exciting book we have is Eric Metaxas’ new biography of Martin Luther! In recognition of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Eric Metaxas released this new biography on the 3rd of this month. The library was able to get it soon after its release and it is now available in the library for checkout. Stop by early in order to be the first to check it out!
 
The library is located in Fellowship Hall and open before and after the service every Sunday. Please send us an email here if you have any questions!


Prayer Books for Revival!

 
As many of you know, our church is having a Solemn Assembly on Saturday, November 4 to pray for revival. We are aiming to have continuous prayer from Thursday the 2nd to right before the Assembly on the 4th. If you are interested in signing up, check out the available times here. If you see one you want to sign up for, email Sonja West here.
 
This Sunday (October 22), the FPC Library will be highlighting our numerous prayer books on the library display tables. The object of this display is to provide resources to people who are interested in learning more about prayer and learning new ways to pray. We especially hope it will be helpful to those people who have signed up to pray for an hour leading up to the Solemn Assembly and that it will advance our church’s goal of praying for revival as well as facilitating personal growth.
 
Many of our prayer books (especially our new ones) are in our online catalog and you can take a look at them here. Also, stop by the table on Sunday to see many of our other books on prayer. In addition, we have a selection of prayer books for children that may be helpful in involving children in our focus of praying for revival.
 
The library is open before and after the service every Sunday. Stop by and see us! As always, if you have any questions, please send us an email here!


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.
