BOOK OF THE MONTH
Our March Book of the Month is Forgiven by Tim Chester. We live in uncertain times. Our society is changing rapidly and many of us feel left behind. How can we face the future with confidence?
In these resurrection meditations that prepare us for Easter, Tim Chester reassures our fearful hearts by pointing us to the Lord Jesus and his finished work. Guiding us through the later chapters of Hebrews, these devotions remind us that, when everything around us is turning and churning, we can fix our eyes on Jesus, the anchor of our souls. This short devotional style book, Forgiven, reminds us of what Jesus accomplished on the cross!

CHILDREN’S BOOK NOOK
Psalm 78:4 says, “Tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lᴏʀᴅ.” To this end, we have added to our recommended books a kid's section! We are convinced that books are among the greatest tools at our disposal to help us “train up a child in the way he should go” (Proverbs 22:6). So, we've added intentionally selected books that are biblically faithful and help us teach our younger minds. These books teach big truths about God in age-appropriate ways. They are simple without being simplistic and show the beauty of the gospel. These books will remind our children—and ourselves as we read them—to set their hope in God.
Whether you are looking for gospel saturated bedtime reading, something to read around the dinner table, or just something fun to read, these books are available to you! You may borrow them by checking them out or keep them for a donation to help us keep good books on the shelf! Take up and read and may we faithfully teach the next generation.
