Manna House


Located directly adjacent to the church, Manna House became a congregational dream in the mid-1990’s when the owners, the LaPorte Chapter of the American Red Cross, began their search for a new location. In 2002, that dream became reality when the building was purchased by the church, and much sweat equity and loving labor was invested in restoring it to its beautiful 1890’s Arts and Crafts appeal.

Across the street from the Public Library, Manna House, open to all, is now a warm and delightful place to hold meetings or to sit and browse through the many books on spiritual growth that are available on its bookshelves and to hold intriguing discussions.


Manna House holds volumes of books authored by Emanuel Swedenborg, by those influenced by him, as well as by others who share their spiritual insights about their journeys to becoming closer to the Lord, both on this earthly plane as well as in the afterlife. Contact Us for more information about visiting the bookroom and its contents.
