A Word from the Librarian
January 2018 - Try Something New!
I want to encourage you to try something new this year. The library is a great place to start even if you DO NOT LIKE TO READ! The library has some AMAZING RESOURCES that you can check out and listen to on your drive to work or while cleaning your house. You can make that time beneficial to your Christian life by using the time for discipleship (Christian growth). The Library has 2 versions of the entire New Testament on CD: One is the “Word of Promise New Testament” (NKJV) and the second is “The Message” (Contemporary language). We also have several books of the Old Testament on CD too along with several devotionals on CD. Listening to a CD on your way to work and doing errands is a great way to multitask and grow in your Christian walk. The library also has the book “Stop asking Jesus into your heart” by J. D. Greer in both CD and book format and “Erasing Hell” by Francis Chan on CD. We also have “Experiencing God” by Henry Blackaby in both CD and DVD for those of you that have never participated in this wonderful study or those that would like to review the program (we do have the book on the shelf too). Parents, how would you like to help your children memorize even more scripture during 2018. The library has just what you need to do that! There are several Verse to Verse T.O.P. (Trained on principles) Kids Scripture Songs CDs to help your kids (and you) memorize scripture. So, make your first stop in 2018 in the Library here at Shoal Creek. 

I also want to encourage everybody to remember OCC Shoeboxes all year. I have an idea “Monthly Class Challenge” that could help each Sunday School Class remember shoeboxes each month. Several of our adult Sunday School classes are large classes. It would be very easy for the individuals in each adult class to purchase at least 10 of 1 item from a list I will put into your class basket each month. Now that does pose a small problem, there is no storage space left here at church so as a class you will need to come up with somewhere to store your purchases until we need them next November. I am starting with a list of hygiene items because we were very short on those items at the packing party and ran out very early.

Library Support & Resources
Alabama Baptist Convention State Board of Missions

We are blessed here in Alabama. There are states where church libraries do not have the support of their State Baptist Board of Missions, and because of that do not have the organization that we do. Some states have discontinued their state library workshops. We have a great support system here in Alabama from people like Mike Jackson in the Discipleship & Family Ministries at our State Board of Missions. Be sure to check their website often to keep up with all that is going on in your organization. The website is www.alsbom.org.
