Books & Bites

First Sunday of the Month during Program Year, 

9:00 am

Books & Bites provides a forum for members of the congregation to discuss a book that they have read together. They meet on the first Sunday of the month during the Rector's forum 9-9:30 on Sunday mornings during the program year. 

Although some of the discussion time is book specific, questions that address broader themes provide an entry point for participation by those who were simply curious or who had been unable to read that month’s book selection. Information about the upcoming book is available here.

We have already developed a list of potential book choices for the 2017-2018 program year. We plan to announce the proposed 2017-2018 reading list by mid-July so that interested readers can use the summer to get a head start. 

Good Grief

Good Grief is a support group for anyone who is having difficulty with a loss. It may be a pet, a divorce, or death of a loved one...whatever it is you are suffering, feel free to bring yourself and share, if you wish, your hurt with a group willing to listen. Or listen to the stories of others. It all can help. People of any - or no - denomination are welcome.

Good Grief usually meets the last Saturday of the month (except November and December) at 9:30 am.
