All parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh have an annual membership to the Southwest Pennsylvania Lutheran Synod Resource Center. The Resource Center is available for members of the clergy and the laity to borrow resources in person, phone, e-mail and through the online catalog.
There are over 1,000 resources already listed in the online catalog and more are being added each week. This Resource Center has quality printed and media resources and also provides a hospitable space where one can browse and work. The resources include DVD’s, books, curriculums, magazines, Vacation Bible school programs and other items. There are a variety of topics covered which include Bible study, stewardship, church growth, youth resources, children’s ministry curriculums, adult study programs, spirituality, and Episcopal church history and practices including Acolyte, Altar Guild, and Vestry resources.
