The LCPC Library and Resource Center provides resource materials for our church community of faith, offering guidance, inspiration, and support for personal and group activities designed to deepen our faith in God and our understanding of what it means to be his people.
Self-service anytime the church office is open. The Librarian is on duty on Thursdays, 1:30-4:30PM and on occasional Fridays, 1:00-5:00 PM.
Browse and Check out the Holdings at the Library
Browse through the displays throughout the library, we have music CD’s, books on CD, movies and TV series on DVD, many of the past LCPC classes and speakers on DVD and some wonderful educational and enjoyable DVD’s. We have books on a wide variety of subjects, such as parenting, Christian life, fiction novels and many variations of books on biblical subjects. We have a growing section of books dealing with grief, and every week there is something new added to the shelves. Come by and take a look. Check out an item at our self-check desk and be on your way. It’s easy, but remember items are due in three weeks. We currently have over 100 items that haven not been returned in over 6 months up to 4 years! We have more than 300 items just plain missing (borrowed without filling out a card). If you need an item for longer than three weeks due to a class, a study or whatever the reason, just let the librarian know on a note placed on her desk, a phone call or an e-mail.
Check Our Catalog of Library Holdings
We have a binder on the credenza that lists all the books in the system. It is updated twice a year. Find books by author, subject, or title. If you need any help finding a book, or would like to reserve one, just email the library at firstname.lastname@example.org and your book will be set aside for you to pick up at your convenience.

The Protestant Way
Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the Castle Church door in Wittenberg, Germany at twelve noon on October 31, 1517. The Reformation was underway!
We Protestants have the responsibility to participate in growing in our faith. For this we depend not just on a priest, but we listen to our pastors, study the ideas of Christians throughout the ages and living now, and go directly to our Father and Jesus through the Holy Spirit. To this end, Luther translated the Bible into German, and today it continues to be translated into the vernacular of the people. Here at LCPC, one of our resources for our spiritual journey is the LCPC Library and Resource Center.
We are always looking for current, up-to-date books, DVD’s/Blu-Ray’s and music and book CD’s. Our library budget is very small, and our holdings are aging. Many of the audio/visual items needed to be retired, and our offerings in many print subjects are out-of-date. Please check your shelves at home, we’d love to accept your donations. If they are duplicates of our inventory or good items, but not in keeping with our ministry, we set them out on the book cart on Sundays for the congregation members to take home and enjoy.
