Check out the resources in our church library! 

We have an ever growing LGBTQ+ resource section where you can put your hands on some actual books! All materials in this section are yours to borrow or to keep. No need to sign a check-out card. We're happy to make them available.

 

Included in this area are several publications by PFLAG, as well as books relating to human sexuality and the church, and life stories from members of the LGBTQ+ community.
