Growing Place Library

Our mission is to offer the best in Christian literature and fiction for both adults and children. Subjects range from biblical study material, parenting and families, missions, marriage, theology, biographies and Christian living.

We offer this material in book form, CDs, and DVDs. We also have magazines covering a good cross-section of Christian and cultural subjects.  Please stop by and visit us! 

If you're not sure what to read, we have compiled a resource guide based on recommendations from pastors, staff, and leaders in the church. The list is organized by topic and includes the call number for where to find it in the library.

  • Monday, February 13, 2023 — Peace Like a River by Leif Enger

    Leif Enger’s debut novel, Peace Like A River, was launched to critical acclaim in 2001 and went on to sell over one million copies. Now a perennial, best-selling American classic, it is at once a heroic quest, a tragedy, and a love story, in which “there is magic... none more potent that Leif Enger’s prose” (Newsday). Enger brings us eleven-year-old Reuben Land, an asthmatic boy in the Midwest who has reason to believe in miracles. Along with his sister and father, Reuben finds himself on a cross-country search for his outlaw older brother who has been charged with murder. Their journey unfolds like a revelation, and its conclusion shows how family, love, and faith can stand up to the most terrifying of enemies, and the most tragic of fates.

  • Monday, April 17, 2023 — Gospelbound: Living with Resolute Hope in an Anxious Age by Collin Hansen and Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra

    As the pressures of health warnings, economic turmoil, and partisan politics continue to rise, the influence of gospel-focused Christians seems to be waning. In the public square and popular opinion, we are losing our voice right when it’s needed most for Christ’s glory and the common good. But there’s another story unfolding too—if you know where to look. In Gospelbound, Collin Hansen and Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra counter these growing fears with a robust message of resolute hope for anyone hungry for good news. Join them in exploring profound stories of Christians who are quietly changing the world in the name of Jesus—from the wild world of digital media to the stories of ancient saints and unsung contemporary activists on the frontiers of justice and mercy.
