This event is registered with Left Bank Books in the Central West End. By being registered as one of their reading groups, the book can be purchased in their store for the reduced rate of $14.35.

Sunday, August 21 at 12:30 p.m. – we will discuss Chapters 5 thru 8 at Hope (with potluck salad lunch).

If you’d like to be a part of this, please add your name to the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board outside the church office or contact Pastor Sarah by June 30 so we have an approximate number for planning purposes. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Pastor Sarah.
