The Library Committee is trying to retrieve some items that have been borrowed for a long period of time--items you may have forgotten you borrowed. Please check the list on the library bulletin board to see if you may have some library items in your home and return them so others might share them. Thank you so much!
The John Vessels Memorial Library at LPC offers a variety of Christian reading/listening /viewing materials.The classification system includes such sections as Christian Growth (CG), Parenting and Family (PF), Family DVDs (F/DVD) to name a few. Borrowing from the library is free and done the old fashioned way-signing out a card. The library committee will highlight a few items for each update of the website. We encourage everyone to use the library and feel free to offer suggestions for additions.
April 9th is also Palm Sunday. Why not use your LPC Library to look up Easter rituals in the Christian Growth section, or Easter facts and trivia in the Bible Studies section, or Easter prayers in the Prayer and Devotions sections? Maybe even hide some Bible verses in the plastic eggs for your Easter egg hunt.
Easter is really the basis for our Christianity. Celebrate and learn.
"My counsel is this, live freely, animated by God's Spirit. Then you won't feed the compulsions of selfishness." Galatians 5:16 MSG. If any of you subscribe to the online Daniel Plan, you will recognize this as the latest motivational scripture from that web site. Good news! The LPC library now offers the Daniel Plan book! Combining the Daniel Plan with the new exercise program hoping to be offered at LPC might be what this Fall is all about!
In addition, the Devotions section of the library has expanded (and moved). September might be a good time to start a new daily devotional, or even encourage your son or daughter to start a daily devotional to begin the new school year.
Also, due to recent donations, the LPC library had to be rearranged. Check out the remade map on the bulletin board. New additions to the library are on the display easel. They include: Laughter: Chuck's Prescription for Joy CD and First Place 4 Health. Also on the easel is a Fall favorite: Halloween--What's a Christian to Do?
The Library Committee cannot thank the congregational donors enough for adding to our shelves. As always, if you have any suggestions for purchase, please drop a note in the Library mailbox. If you have any "overdue" items, please return them so that others might enjoy them. (There are a few items that were signed out in 2003--do you have any LPC library books/CDs/etc. tucked away in a corner of your home?) The Library Committee would
love to hear any review you might have of a book you feel would benefit
others. By the way, if you pull a book off a shelf and can't remember where to return it--please don't fret; just drop it in the return box and we will shelve it.
Please come in to the LPC library to browse, read a magazine or check out a book or DVD. The library is not just a meeting room!
The John Vessels Memorial Library is happy to announce that a new newsletter-The Voice of the Martyrs-will be added to our monthly periodicals. This magazine informs us of modern day missionaries spreading the Word and the trials they encounter. This should serve as a reminder to all of us to pray for our brothers and sisters in service to the Lord.
