OPRC’s library houses a small but varied collection of materials ranging from children’s books and videos to theological references. In addition, sermon recordings, church records and archival materials are maintained in the library. Our library is a hub of activity serving as meeting space, Sunday School classroom as well as hosting the Preschool’s annual Book Fair.
The library was diligently and lovingly developed by church members Pat McIntosh and Sylvia Elliott who passed its care to Elizabeth McIver in 2007. In order to keep up with growth in church programming and membership, many new initiatives will be undertaken in the coming year, so please be sure to stop in and watch our library grow!
We regard life and all the resources that make life manageable and meaningful as a gift from God. We consider ourselves to be rich in the things that matter: love, friendship, worship, work, play, mission, and fellowship. We also recognize that we are among the wealthiest citizens of the world, regardless of our financial standing in the U.S.
We encourage gratitude first: Thanking God for the richness of life.
We encourage giving of time, talents, and money to God’s work in the world through the church and outside the church.
We teach people to consider a “tithe,” giving one tenth of their household income to God’s work in the world, both in the congregation and beyond, or at least to make a tithe a household goal.
We promise to be good stewards of what the members of the church give. Though what members give is held in confidence, where the money goes is transparent and records are always available to the public.
