Lincolnton  Little  Library

Salem, Lincolnton, came together to do 'God’s Work' with 'Our Hands' by creating a little library.

October 19, 2020 |

Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Salem, Lincolnton, came together to do “God’s Work” with “Our Hands.” Members of Emmanuel, Lincolnton, also joined in the project since the two congregations began worshipping together in the arbor at Salem earlier this summer.

Realizing the importance of reading and books, members of Salem proposed erecting a “Little Free Library” on the church property. Randy Harris used his skills to build the library with his wife, Susan, helping with design ideas and encouragement. Members were asked to donate books and the response was generous. A Thrivent Action Team was formed to fund the materials for the construction of the library. The project took a little longer than expected but it was completed on Sunday, October 4, with a dedication of the library and the books during the joint worship service. Following the service, members carried armloads of books to the library and placed them inside. This was definitely a joint effort and one that we hope will benefit the children and adults of the community for years to come.
