History

After much development and organization by a very dedicated team of individuals, the Grace Church Library opened on September 26, 2010, in support of Christian education, religious literacy, and the simple joy of reading. Located in the stained-glass ambience of Room 223 (see below for window information), the Grace Library features books, resources, and media for children, teens and adults. The Library collection includes reference material, adult and children's fiction and non-fiction, and audio/visual materials. Christmas and Easter stories for children are clearly marked and easy to find. For adults, the Library contains selections from diverse perspectives on theology, other religions, social issues, biography, history, and other topics of interest. Also offered are commentaries, dictionaries, maps, and other materials of use to teachers and participants of the various Christian education classes and study groups at Grace Church. For parents, teachers, families, and caregivers of those with special needs (in conjunction with the Grace Open Doors Special Needs Ministry), the Library maintains a collection of helpful resources available for check-out at any time. Come "check us out" in Room 223!

 

Wayne Churchill Window
 

The stained glass window in the Grace Library was originally part of our former church edifice. It was re-acquired, along with several other windows, refurbished and re-installed in the church library. This window has been dedicated in memory of Wayne Churchill.
