September recomendations

Well here we are flipping another calendar page and beginning  not only the new month of September,  but also a new season of more scheduled activities, beginning of school, perhaps returning to work and maybe looking forward to new experiences too! 


The CTK Library committee is excited to share that this past month a large number of NEW BOOKS have been added in various enjoyed categories for your enjoyment.  Over these next few months we will provide a brief introduction of some of these new books. 

  •   Josiah’s Fire by Tahni Cullen with Cheryl Ricker - Autism Spectrum Disorder stole his words, GOD gave him a voice! Find hope in hardship. Catch a fresh glimpse of heaven.  Learn to hear and trust GOD’s voice.  Identify the roles of Father, Son & Spirit.  Be aware of the workings of angels and much more.
  •   Donkeys Still Talkby Virelle Kidder – GOD uses the oddest things to grab our full attention.  The donkeys in our own lives can be difficult people, overwhelming odds, or interrupted plans.  The problem is, we can easily miss these personal messages.  With a healthy dose of humorous anecdotes and biblical truth, the author tells us how she learned to listen to the donkeys in her life.
  • Daring to Hope by Katie Davis Majors – Finding GOD’s Goodness in the Broken and the Beautiful.  When Katie Davis Majors moved to Uganda, accidentally founded a booming organization, and later became the mother of thirteen girls through the miracle of adoption, she determined to weave her life together with the people she desired to serve.  But joy often gave way to sorrow as she invested her heart fully in walking alongside people in the grip of poverty, addiction, desperation and disease.  This story is about encountering GOD’s goodness in the least expected places.

We hope you will stop in the library and look at these new books that are located right under the windows and perhaps check out what might be of interest.  Remember reading is wonderful for your mind, body and soul!

Library Lowdown

We are blessed at Christ the King to have a wonderful church library!  It is conveniently located with easy access to regular church traffic, has an inviting environment for book browsing, reading a magazine, explore in more depth a special book, hold a small meeting or just sit, visit or relax in a quiet environment.

The church library is NOT just a place - - it is also a ministry opportunity!  It is a “Treasure Chest” full of valuable resources all FREE and available to all using a self-checkout system any time the church is open.  There are many resources in the areas of fiction, non-fiction, biographies, books in a ‘Kids Korner’ with table and chairs, reference books and even puzzles to enjoy in the library or take home.

The library is run by a volunteer committee that meets monthly. They manage books and determine appropriate purchases of additional books and reference materials.  They also prepare and rotate the book displays in the library area, the church Prayer Room and prepare book and author reviews.

If you currently have found the joy and convenience of our CTK Library, we thank you!  If you have never been in our library, we encourage you to explore and use the wonderful resources available for your education and enjoyment.
