Books and Beyond 2018

Books and Beyond, our monthly book club group, will meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month through May. Anyone interested in books and great conversation is welcome to join us!

The book discussion for February will be integrated with our Lenten Supper Series. Come at 6:00 pm and enjoy a choice of Cameroonian soup (prepared by Rev. Jay) or a good old American chicken vegetable option, or come just for the book conversation at 7:00.
