We will also learn more about a columbarium could we envision one at CRLC? One session will be devoted to looking at church transitions ... giving all members the opportunity to share their ideas and dreams for what may be ahead at CRLC.

CRLC's Faithful Readers

This book discussion group meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 10 AM in Chapelview Room September through May, except December when we attend the Advent Tea.  Click here for a list of the books for this year. 

CRLC Library

Diane Wilson has been organizing the books in our church library this summer.  The shelves are marked so visitors can easily find a book to read and there’s no need to “sign out” a book or present a library card; just take what interests you and bring it back when you’ve finished.  (If you can remember where you found it, you can even reshelf it for someone else to borrow.)

The library is in the Chapel View Room on the upper level at the rear of the building. Take the hall past the offices and around to the back. The library books are all neatly arranged on shelves in the room that’s used most often for meetings and study groups.
