What is the Resource Center?

The Resource Center (RC) is a lending library that aims to provide quality materials to help develop mature, gospel-centered followers of Jesus Christ who are able to share the hope of Christ to transform lives.  

The Resource Center serves all age groups and ministry areas. Literally every other facet of the church can benefit from the resources that nurture spiritual growth. Both fiction and nonfiction can be useful for gaining biblical knowledge, insight and understanding, and the variety of formats (audio, video, and paper) accommodate any preference. Small Group leaders may be especially interested in checking out the many   DVD and book studies available. Families will especially appreciate the book and video selections that promote healthy thinking, integrity of character, and knowledge of God. 

The Resource Center exists to encourage faithful, humble thinking leading to the true knowledge of God which compels authentic  worship and fuels wisdom in all matters of life.

 

What can I find in the RC?

We are continually adding new resources monthly! We offer Christian non-fiction, fiction, biographies, children’s books, Bible studies, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks to all registered users.  It is our goal to have resources that meet needs for the whole family.

 

Who can check out materials?

There is no cost to register, and you can sign up at your first visit by filling out a form with your basic information.  You do not need to be a member or regular attender of Community Church to use the Resource Center.  We seek to serve the larger church community!

 

How long can I check out materials?

There is no cost to use the Resource Center, but fines are applied to late or lost items; and failure to comply with circulation policies may result in restricted use.

Books = 30 days

Group Study Materials = 3 months

All other items = 2 weeks

Extended due dates always available on request

 

Renewing late items eliminates overdue fines and helps our volunteers immensely as they invest many hours managing  and tracking circulation to protect the financial assets of the church.

 

When are you open?

*Hours:

Mondays: 9am-2pm
Tuesdays: 9am-4pm
Thursdays: 9am-10am
MOPS Fridays: 10:30-11:30am
Sundays 15 minutes before service and between 1st and 2nd service

 

How do you choose your items?

Our goal is to provide resources that align with Philippians 4:8 and encourage Colossians 3:2.

“…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”  Philippians 4:8

“Set your sights on things above, not on earthly things.”  Colossians 3:2

We do our best to provide high quality, Biblically based resources that align with our core beliefs as a church.

 *The Resource Center is primarily operated by dedicated volunteers making every effort to provide these weekday hours available to you.  There can, however, be rare occasions when no volunteer is available during scheduled open hours. It may be helpful for you to call the church receptionist to check if we’re open before driving long distances.  (920) 922-1477
