Book Discussion Group – 3rd Thursday, 6-8:00 p.m.

Join us for dinner and discussion based on books from The Florida UCC Women’s Reading for Renewal Book List and other titles. Women are encouraged to borrow or purchase a copy of the book to be discussed and to read it prior to the dinner. Some copies are available in the Church Library and the Lee County Library System should have some as well . If you haven’t had a chance to read all, or even part of the book, come anyway for the lively discussions and fellowship. Please sign up on the UCC Women’s Bulletin Board or call the church office.
