Book Group

Home Discussion Groups & Gatherings

 

Home discussion groups help our Community explore topics of interest, relevant books, and scripture in smaller group settings close to home. In 2019, individual study groups gathered to read Brian McLaren’s “The Great Spiritual Migration.” A convocation was held to compare notes and gather for a broader discussion.

 

With many of our Community members being artists themselves or involved in the arts, there are frequent opportunities to take in local concerts, theater productions and exhibits.

 

Our Community Dinner series helps us get to know one another better and is a highlight of the summer season.
