In the St John’s Library we have books and DVDs that may be checked out on such topics as Christian Living, Parenting, Luther, the Bible, Biblical History, and much more. We also have a large collection of materials for small group discussions.
Our group comes together to discuss the books we read and how they relate to our lives. A wide variety of books are selected. While the book is the catalyst for discussion, our main focus is on community and connection with each other. We meet at 7:00 p.m. the third Friday of each month at the home of the hostess for the month. The hostess provides beverages and light snacks.
Meet: 7:00 p.m., third Friday of each month (except December), in homes.
