Summer 2022: Book Club with Pot Luck Dinner

New-comers to our meetings are always warmly welcomed.  For more information, please email or call the church office.(We are a relaxed group of friendly people who enjoy our time together as we study the Word of God weekly from September through May and in the summer read three good books for discussion.)

Our second Summer outing is July 20th at a member’s home.  Again it will be a pot luck dinner at 6:00, followed by a book discussion.  This month our book selection is a non fiction about President James Garfield, Destiny of the Republic: A tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President by Candice Millard. All Good Shepherd ladies (and gentlemen) and friends are encouraged to join in the fun.
Please email or call the church office to find out how to RSVP to our hostess. Once we know who is attending, we can arrange car pooling.
There are copies of July’s book selection in all the local libraries in hard copy, e-copy and  audio.



On June 15th we met for our first summer read and ladies pot luck dinner at 6:00 p.m. at a member’s home. The book discussed was Becoming Mrs. Lewis: The Improbable Love Story of Joy Davidman and C S Lewis by Patti Callahan.

Spring 2022

The Letters of John

After pausing during the Alpha class and Holy Week, the in-person weekly Thursday afternoon Bible Study meetings are resuming at 3:00 p.m. on April 28th in the downstairs altar guild room. Our continuing study will cover  the last four lessons left in our study guide on the letters of John – beginning with Week 9, 2 John:1-6. These lessons will take us through May 19th and then we can turn our thoughts toward our summer dinners and book discussions.

Summer 2021: Book Club

Last summer’s books: The Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon’s Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart by James R. Doty  and a work of fiction, “The Book of Longings” by Sue Monk Kidd. This book, set in first century Galilee, proves controversial due to the characterization of Jesus as a young man within the narrative. The focus of our book discussion centered on  women’s voices in this time, place, and culture.
