Pastor’s Book Club News

by | Oct 1, 2023

Welcome to the first episode of our new worship series, Words. Each week there is a reading assignment in our companion book, Woman of Words by Angela Hunt.

Reading along with us is completely optional. I plan to recap each week’s chapters and focus on one or more of the author’s references to stories found in scripture.

Nevertheless, we chose this approach to our series based on experience. Those who read the companion book report a deeper connection to scripture.

We begin with the first four chapters. Matthew, an apostle of Jesus is asked by Peter and John, also apostles, and James, a brother of Jesus, to move to Jerusalem to help.

Here is the schedule for episodes two through eight:

Oct 8: Chapters 5 – 9
Oct 15: Chapters 10 – 15
Oct 22: Chapters 16 – 21
Oct 29: Chapters 22 – 28
Nov 5: Chapters 29 – 33
Nov 12: Chapters 34 – 40
Nov 19: Chapters 41 – 45

Cyndi and I are on vacation Sunday, November 26. The Season of Advent begins Sunday, December 3 with a new worship series.

Our Book Club does not meet as a group. However, our weekly messages reference that weeks chapters. You can anticipate spoiler alerts unless you keep up with the pace. I’ve purchased ten books but when they’re gone you can still purchase your own copy or visit your local library.

You can contact our office with questions, by phone or simply type your question or enter a prayer request on our website’s homepage —
