Welcome to the new Christ Church Resource Room (formerly the Christ Church library, room 112)! The shelves have been cleaned out and organized into a room that is easily accessible and usable for Sunday school classes, small groups, and individuals looking to grow their faith.
The Resource Room is organized into several sections—from Advent to men’s and women’s studies to parenting and marriage—with studies available from today’s popular authors, such as Adam Hamilton, Tim Keller, and Lysa TerKeurst. Several of our studies include a youth and children’s component, and many include multiple books for your group.
In addition to many selections for children in the Resource Room, we also have a children’s bookshelf located just outside of room 112. These books are changed regularly and include seasonal books, books about growing your children’s faith, and popular titles.
Looking through our collection is easy to do from the comfort of your own home or classroom. Paper copies are available in the Resources Room. The collection document is located on the Christ Church website under Member Resources, or by emailing Lynn Long (email@example.com). It is easily searchable for your subject of study: Just hit Command + F (Macs) or Ctrl + F (Windows) and enter your search term in the window that appears in the top right corner of the browser.
Interested in donating to the Resource Room? We accept resources that are less than 10 years old with no writing or other markings that can be used by a Sunday school class or small group. If you donation is not right for the Resource Room, it will be donated to the St. Francis Episcopal annual book sale.
Another great resource for studies is the Western North Carolina Conference Resource Room. Their collection is extensive. You can order as many books as you need for your group, or just one. They also have the DVD and leader guide for each study. The only cost is the return of the resources to them in Huntersville. Check them out at wnccumc.org/resourcecener and email Lynn Long for ordering.
The Resource Room is open during the week and on Sunday mornings. You are welcome at any time. The room is shared with Kara Harvey (Director of Children’s Discipleship) and Lynn Long (Discipleship Ministry Assistant), so the room is always lively and full of the next activity happening in Discipleship Ministries. Please contact Lynn Long (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Church Office for any assistance finding or ordering resources for your group.
