Matthews Christian Library


Many faces, one faith

​The land at the corner of North Ames and West Charles was given to the Matthews United Methodist Church in 1877. Since then it has been holy ground and Christ Our Shepherd Ministries has tried to preserve the sanctity of the land by the use we are making of it. Christ Our Shepherd Child Development Campus is a non-profit organization. The campus is funded by donations and fees collected for services.

Matthews Christian Library exists to provide resources which will impact the community by pointing them to Christ, helping them develop a life of Christian discipleship, and helping them to grow strong and stable households that reflect God’s design.
