Did you know that we have, in our library, three full shelves of resources for those who serve on our church council?  There are books on good meeting practices, books that explain narrative budgeting, communication within the congregation, stewardship and planned giving, record keeping and archives.  There are wonderful books on Christian Education from preschool through youth and adult.  We have resources on Pastoral Care, Ministry and Personnel, Worship and Music, Outreach and  congregational renewal. 

Most of these resources are from trusted publishers e.g. Alban Institute, United Church Publishing House (UCPH), Wood Lake Books and Zondervan. 

Beneath this section is a shelf of books (#511) dealing with United Church history and policy. 

As we head into a new church season, I trust that Council will avail itself of this store of knowledge and information. 

There are other library categories we have not reviewed this summer, notably children’s books, Social Justice, Biblical fiction and Don’s Chicken Soup books.  They’re all there for your pleasure and study.

Come on in!

The sign out book is on the desk.
