Fostering Community with Real People, Real Lives, Real Faith…  

 

Are you looking for books, DVDs, or study guides for your small group? The LAUMC Resource Center has a number of resources for purchase and/or loan that may interest your group members.

Resource Database

Small-group resources have a separate category to distinguish them from the rest of the library’s books: search for “grow in faith” to find the full list, then use the “Refine Search” options on the right to narrow down the categories that interest your group. Click on any result to view more details. You can even email an item’s details to yourself or your group.
