ashley's book club & Coffee connection

third thursdays, 12:00 - 1:00Pm

I love to read. My goal each year is to read 100 books. Sometimes I reach that goal, sometimes I don’t.  And I love to talk about the books I have read. It helps me to process the themes and what I have learned. Perhaps you love to read, too. Perhaps you love a good cup of coffee and casual conversation about the books you’ve read. Perhaps you’re also in three other book clubs!  I simply wanted to share with you a few of my favorite books - books that have opened my mind to new thinking; books that have brought me into a fuller relationship with Jesus; books by Quaker theologians, a Catholic priest, a Presbyterian Pastor, and more! Some are new; some are classics. Some are readable in one or two hours, while others require deep meditation. Some will challenge you, and some will make you smile at the thought of just how much Jesus loves you. 

My invitation to you is this: Join us at the church on the third Thursdays of each month to casually chat about the book of the month. We’ll meet in the Youth Lounge Area on the 2nd Floor of the Hunter BuildingBring your lunch, bring your own book! Come every month; come every other month; or enjoy reading these titles from wherever you are! Let’s read together!
