A Summer of Good News
A Summer of Good News: 90 Days with the Gospels
summer sermon series

We are currently on a journey through the Gospels. For the next 90 days, we are encouraging everyone to read one chapter from the Gospels a day, to cultivate a habit of daily engagement with the Bible. We invite you to pick up a bookmark (located at the worship entrances) that has the daily reading plan on one side and a helpful guide for how to get the most out of your daily scripture reading on the other. Each Sunday's sermon will be based on the chapter for that specific day or from one of the chapters in the previous week's reading.

Page Turners Book Club
Page Turners Book Club
Monday, July 2
The Page Turners Book Club will meet on Monday, July 2 at 7:00pm in Room 102 of the Adult Building to discuss Sing Unburied Sing by Jesmyn Ward. Set on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, the book's Southern gothic aura recalls the dense, head-spinning prose of William Faulkner or Flannery O'Connor. It combines aspects of the American road novel and the ghost story with a timely treatment of the long aftershocks of a hurricane and the opioid epidemic devouring rural America." Sing, Unburied, Sing is many things: a road novel, a slender epic of three generations and the ghosts that haunt them, and a portrait of what ordinary folk in dire circumstances cleave to as well as what they--and perhaps we all--are trying to outrun."
