THE RESOURCE CENTER IS A PLACE FOR MINISTRY

Our ministry is about making connections! We encourage individuals as well as congregations and their leaders to share their gifts and resources.  We invite you to the Resource Center to engage in conversation and learning with others, for consultations to discern theologically sound and culturally relevant curriculum for your congregation's programs, and to preview and borrow resources to equip the members of your congregation for mission and ministry in your context. We also welcome all members of our congregations to come browse new and classic resources for individual nourishment of their faith journeys.

In addition to visiting the center, resources may be requested by phone or email, or by using the online catalog.

HOW YOU CAN HELP THE SOUTHWESTERN PENNSYLVANIA SYNOD RESOURCE CENTER

The Resource Center is made possible through our synod's mission support. Monetary donations are always welcome. Due to space restrictions we cannot receive all donations of books and DVDs. Please contact the Resource Center in advance for more information on donations of resources.

We welcome your time and talents. If you would be interested in volunteer service at the center, please contact us for additional information on the current needs.

Your time is important to us! Holiday schedules coincide with those established by the Synod Office. Meetings, consultations, etc. may occasionally close the Resource Center during regular hours. If at all possible, please call in advance to make certain someone is available to assist you.

Thank you for your support of this important ministry!
