Loving Christ. Loving One Another. Loving The City.

Join the FPC Literature Circle Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at 1:30 PM in Westminster Hall when Martha Smith will review the historical fiction novel, “Becoming Mrs. Lewis,” by author Patti Callahan. What started out as letters searching into the world of Christianity by Joy Davidman with C.S. Lewis, an Oxford Don & author of Narnia, gradually evolved into a deep friendship, love and then marriage. You won’t want to miss the entirety of their life together.

This will be our final review before our summer recess until September 14, 2021.  See the list of new book selections for your summer reading.

In-person masks are required along with social distancing.  You may bring your own personal bottle of drinking water.  The taped review is time delayed a few hours.

You will be notified via email of any changes to this information. If you do not want to be included in our email list or know someone that wants to be included, please notify me.

Blessings to all during this difficult time and thanks to Suzanne West, who delivered this years books to members’ homes on request, and to Grace Clouse, our circle chair, for numerous arrangements.
