Summer Book Club

It’s that time of year!

Let’s spend our summer in fellowship together around a good book! Plan on joining one of our groups as we read books written to encourage our faith and inspire us to pursue personal holiness as we walk with Christ.

Our summer book clubs meet in homes. Due to limited capacity, registration is required. Once you have been added to a group, your leader will be in touch with more details.

Groups will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so register ASAP!

Grieving with Hope by Samuel J. Hodges IV and Kathy Leonard
This book is packed with short, biblically based, gospel-centered, topical chapters addressing the issues grieving people face but are often hesitant to mention to others. It helps listeners accurately interpret the message their emotions are sending them and gently guides them to determine whether they’re grieving in a way that leads to hope and ultimate healing.

Ten Words to Live By by Jen Wilkin
Christianity isn’t about following rules, it’s about a relationship. The rise in popularity of this phrase coincides with a growing disinterest and misunderstanding regarding the role of God’s life-giving, perfect law in the Christian life. Rather than the source of joy it was intended to be, the law is viewed as an angry god’s restrictions for a rebellious people.

Leader: Gina Wathen
Meets Weekly on Wednesdays: July 13 – August 3
Time: 6:30-8:30 p.m.

The Discipline of Grace by Jerry Bridges
From the book’s introduction: “I believe that most Christians think fondly of Jesus, are sincerely grateful for salvation, and remember His name as a tagline when they pray, but they don’t see His work and life as something to contemplate every moment of every day… What I’ll be asking you to consider throughout this book may be summarized in one simple question:  In your pursuit of godliness, have you left Jesus behind?”

Leaders: Shanna Frost & Rachel Garcia
Meets weekly on Wednesdays: June 8 – July 27
Time: 6:15-8:15 p.m. Snacks provided.

Adorned by Nancy Leigh Wolgemuth
Cross-generational community between women is the biblical antidote for being chronically, hopelessly overwhelmed, as so many of us are. When older women come out of their protective cocoons to invest themselves in the lives of younger women, whole families and churches feel the blessing. When young moms and singles widen their peer groups to include women who have already braved the same rapids and lived to tell about it, both sides of the relationship are strengthened and grow. We all, in different ways and in different seasons, need to be on both the giving and receiving end of this life-to-life process.

Leaders: Pamela Cookingham & Lorna Brandau
Meets weekly on Wednesdays: June 8 – July 13 (no meeting July 6)
Time: 6:30-8:30 p.m.
