Resource Center

Penn Central Conference has three resource centers – one at the conference office, one in Central Association and one in Mercersburg Association.

The Conference Resource Center contains a wealth of information (books, curriculum, studies, video, hymnals and articles) on many church topics. The Resource Center is operated through Our Church’s Wider Mission money. Conference congregations and its members are welcome to borrow our resources.

Resource Center Policy

  1. Books, periodicals and videos may be borrowed for 30 days unless otherwise noted.
  2. All items are available free of charge unless the item needs shipped to you. The charge for shipping is usually $2.00 per item.
  3. Audio Video equipment may be borrowed but must be returned the day after its use.
  4. Curriculum samples are available; however, due to copyright laws these are only for review. If your church likes the curriculum, they must purchase it.
  5. If an item is not returned within the 30 days, you will receive a reminder from our office. If you would like to keep an item longer than 30 days, call the conference office and request a renewal. If the item is not on hold for someone, this can be arranged.

For information on the resource center, contact Wendy Hepler at the Conference office 717-652-1560 or e-mail her at
