Saturday, July 5, 2014


Hello -  this a post from your blogmaster DeeAnne.  :o)  Thank you Pastor Ed for allowing me to put this on the blog.

An elderly couple who had lived in Seven Bays, WA, for many years recently, due to health reasons, had to move to Spokane to be near family.  They are now my next door neighbors.  They have been trying to sell their Seven Bays home for a while now.  

They happened to mention their realtor was having an open house on Saturday July 5.  I asked them if I could put out some information about that in case someone in the area might be interested--or know someone else who might be interested--in a home in that area.  

DESCRIPTION:  1993 manufactured home (made by Valley Quality Homes) with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, 1352 sq ft built on top of a full daylight basement.  Lower level has 2-car garage (about 450 sq ft) and large unfinished room (about 900 sq ft) with separate outside entrance to complete as you would like and could be used as a totally separate living area.  All appliances stay.  Has central air conditioning.  It has a wrap-around deck, sprinkler system, nice small fenced yard, fruit trees and garden area.  The lot has water, power, phone and sewer.  There is a homeowners association that costs $885.00 per year which includes water, sewer, community center and swimming pool, plus marina/boat launch, Seven Bays air strip.  There is also RV parking on the lot with its own water, power, sewage for you or your guests!

Thursday, June 26, 2014


If you can not find a book you want, it may be checked out.
See NevaJean and she will put a hold on it for you.

Message from our Librarian NevaJean:  "Recently there was a question on how to find a non-fiction book when only the author is known and not the title or subject. Answer: Look in the white notebook labeled LIBRARY CATALOG laying in its side on a non-fiction shelf. The catalog lists all the non-fiction authors (last name first- ABC order) and the Book Titles and the subject where they are shelved. There are separate tabs for lists of fiction and children’s books etc.”

Check out the "Featured Library Item of the Week" placard
(thank you NevaJean). Also in this area of the library you will find a new “Outreach Ministries” display. Thank you so much Jenni and Wilma for the beautiful job you did on this important aspect of CCC. On the counter to the right of the display, you will find current newsletters of the various outreach ministries of the church.

Note: For a full list of previously reviewed books
 in 2011, 2012 and 2013,
see "pages pages pages"
on the upper right of the blog for that year's books
 alphabetized by author name.

BOOKS 2014 BOOKS 2014 BOOKS 2014

 Some reference books have been added to our library: Halley’s Bible Handbook, The Bible Almanac, Family Encyclopedia of the Bible, Great People of the Bible and How They Lived, Jesus and His Times, Today’s Dictionary of the Bible, Then Sings My Soul, Meet the Bible, Webster’s Dictionary and even a Bible or two. You will find these items on the bottom shelf on the non-fiction side of the library. “The Bible is the most priceless possession of the human race.”

A question recently came up as to whether it is OK to check out the book(s) that happen to be the Featured Library Item of the Week and the answer is a definite yes!  Feel free to take it on that very Sunday.  Thank you to all of our library users for your dedication to the wonderful world of reading!

Primary readers can choose from 35 soft-cover Arch book selections located in the green bucket on the bottom shelf in the Children’s Section of the library.  Practice reading the familiar Bible Stories or enjoy sharing the colorful pictures with a younger brother or sister and tell them the story. GRANDPARENTS…check these books out and have them on hand when the grandkids  (and great-grand kids) come for a visit.  


“Against the backdrop of the glittering ballrooms, gritty factories and quiet parlors of Regency England comes a man’s remarkable journey of love and faith.”  Read Ruth Axtell Morren’s Winter Is Past  (fiction)… our featured Library Item of the Week.  Also remember to check out the “light fiction” in the basket for enjoyable summer reading.

From Neva Jean...  "Our Readers of the Year are Yvonne Gower and Don Dale who averaged over a book a week…Wow!  In 2013 there were 288 items checked out compared to 179 in 2013.  If you had a favorite book you read last year, please tell us about it to recommend it for others.  Keep reading!!"   

From the “church family readers”…thanks so much NevaJean for all the work you put into the library.

This book has been placed on the REFERENCE shelf.  Bradford’s extensive research gives biographical sketches on the lives of the Framers of the Constitution who were present in Philadelphia during some part of the Great Convention (fifty of the fifty-five framers were Christian).  This is a “heavy” study book portraying the ideals of our constitution.  This book can be checked out even though it is in Reference.

Brokaw, Tom (The Greatest Generation Speaks [large print])
Tom wrote The Greatest Generation about the men and women who came out of the depression, who won great victories and made lasting sacrifices in World War II and then returned home to begin building a better world.  Brokaw writes “I felt this tribute was long overdue but I was not prepared for the avalanche of letters and responses touched off by the book.”  The Greatest Generation Speaks (large print) contains these letters and reflections in response to Brokaw’s first book.  Found in Biography and Inspiring Stories.

Hunter, Denise (Kansas Bride)
Christian romance.  Found in Christian Fiction.

Martinez, Jan  (Christ Kitchen, Loving Women Out Of Poverty)
Have you ever had Blessed Bean Soup, Blue Corn Bread of Life, or Chariots of Chile from Christ Kitchen in Spokane?  Meet author Jan Martinez who has a Masters Degree in Public Health and Counseling who wrote the book.  Martinez founded Christ Kitchen to offer mob training, Bible Study, and support for low-income women.  Martinez has skillfully woven the Bible Story of the Samaritan woman at the well with real life stories of today’s women of poverty who are bruised, mangled, and misused seeking a better life.  This autographed copy is a must read for all women to equip and share God’s message with other women in need.   Found in The Evangelism section of the library.

Mills,  DiAnn (Texas Charm)

This first time author spins a beautiful story about a ribbon of white frothy water carving its way through steep canyons high in the Colorado Rockies.  Catch the subtle clues between experiencing the river and living a life of freedom and adventure with Christ as a guide.

Noble, Diane (The Veil)
“In 1857 Utah, the members of one secluded religious group claim to want nothing more than to practice their beliefs without persecution.  Yet among them are many who engage in secret vows and brutal acts of atonement…all in the name of God.”  That veil is about to be drawn aside.  

Peterson, Tracie  (Yukon Quest Series:Treasures of the North, Ashes and Ice, and Rivers of Gold) 
“Dreams of gold and the promise of a new tomorrow beckon to the Land of the Midnight Sun”  (Book 1)  “The journey would test their strength and their will to persevere.”  (Book 2)  “The land was bursting with promise for those who could survive its challenges.” (Book 3)  This historical fiction writer  gives readers a firsthand look into the lives of gold seekers in this series. 

Starns-Clark, Mindy (Whispers of the Bayou)
This is a great suspense novel… easy to read in a couple of days.  The author writes about buried secrets, priceless treasure, and unknown enemies in combination with an ancient myth…or is it real?  NevaJean stated…“ I couldn’t put the book down!”  

Vredevelt, Pam (Empty Arms)
Dealing with death is always a painful, difficult, and slow process.  But even in the midst of grief, joy can be found and grace is present.  Two books have been added to the “Grief and Hope of Heaven” shelf in non-fiction. Pam's book is hope and support for those who have suffered a miscarriage, stillbirth or tubal pregnancy.

Wilkinson, Bruce  (The Dream Giver)
