Ladies, if you love to read, consider joining this book club led by Rosie Osborne! We’ll read and discuss great Christian classics of the faith. We are going to read Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis first, and then we will read How Should We Then Live? by Francis Schaeffer.
Beginning August 24th, we’ll meet each Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in Hightower Hall. This is open to ladies of all ages.
We won’t have any childcare, however, children are welcome, and we’ll have VeggieTales and a few toys available for them.
