Literature Circle


Literature Circle
May 9 • 1:00 PM • McCullough Room

It’s 1944. A baby boy is born, a father is killed in an airplane strafing run, a dusty military footlocker is discovered in his deceased Mother’s garage, and an unexpected letter arrives from overseas. Thus begins a mystery to be solved step by step by the local author, Conrad Netting IV—his “Delayed Legacy.” Mr. Netting will review this true story of his emotional quest to understand his father’s life and death—journey completed! Bring a friend and join us Tuesday, May 9, at 1:00 PM in the McCullough Room for a half hour social followed by this remarkable story. This is our last review before our summer break and a new list of great books will be available for the 2017-2018 Literature Circle year, starting September 12.

Wednesday Evening Ladies Bible Study
March 8 – May 10, 2017
6:30 PM • Room 302


As Christians, we are not promised lives of ease. Often it takes just a small moment of beauty to regain hope and continue on when life is chaotic and unpredictable. Only when we learn to spot the lovely in the midst of hardship can we experience the transcendent peace of God that keeps us persevering when we want to give up.

In this 7-session Bible study, Annie F. Downs examines the ordinary people of the Bible—fishermen, gardeners, women, soldiers—to reveal the moments they found beauty in the darkest circumstances and hope in God’s timing. Because they trusted in this: He makes everything beautiful in His time.
