SEARCHLIGHT ON FACEBOOK — We now have our very own SEARCHLIGHT FACEBOOK PAGE. This page is keeping our regular customers aware of major new releases as they arrive on the sales floor, as well as special promotions. (More people visit us on FB each week than come to this page, but the info is completely different on each.) To “friend” our page, simply click “like”! When you’re logged into Facebook, search for “Searchlight Christian Books.”
HOMESCHOOLERS: The company that Searchlight gets many of its books from is also the parent company of HomeschoolStore.com. You can order as little as ONE BOOK, not pay shipping charges when you place the order THROUGH US. Searchlight is able to order materials from the following key homeschool publishers, and nearly 100 others!

As we head toward Christmas, we need local churches to help keep people aware of this Coming Events page. All we ask for is a quarterly (once every 13 weeks) one-line bulletin announcement or a link from the church website.
LOVE IN ACTION COOKBOOK AVAILABLE — Love In Action is a group of Christian women and sometimes men, who show God’s love by serving others through tangible acts of kindness, both at home and abroad.
