Book Studies

Monday Morning Women’s Group

We are currently studying “The Call” by Adam Hamilton. This book follows the journeys of Paul, beginning with his dramatic conversion, as he spreads the Gospel through modern-day Greece and Turkey. Through this book, we are invited to experience faith through Christ’s greatest teacher and missionary. Along with the book, we will be looking at Paul’s letters, and delving deeper into his theology. This study will be approximately 12 weeks, and began on August 9th. We are temporarily meeting via Zoom every Monday from 9:30-11:00 a.m., but hope to meet again in person in the church parlor. To join us contact Peggy Koenitzer at Paboblenz@comcast.net.

Thursday Morning Women’s Group

As Sisters in Christ we share, pray and study God’s word through a variety of sources. On September 16 we will begin a study and reflect on the book Revival by Adam Hamilton. Revival brings lessons from John Wesley’s life and ministry to bear on discipleship today. It is a resource for personal and denominational revival. We meet Thursday mornings in the church parlor from 8:30-10:00 AM Please contact Carol Talbot at 856-235-9346 for more information.

Eureka!  Book Club

Rev. Patti Walz will be leading a monthly book club named “Eureka Book Club”. “Eureka Book Club” participants will meet the 4th Tuesday of each month from 6:00 – 7:30 PM in the Heritage Room. Come for dinner (to be ordered from a local restaurant and shared cost).

Each month, participants will read a book that is fodder for discussion, growth, inspiration, and/or discipleship action leading to many “eureka” opportunities. Book club members should read or listen to the book before our first meeting and jot down questions or discussion points to be shared. Each book is available through amazon.com, through the local library system, or any online or actual bookstore.

October 26 – “Educated: A Memoir” by Tara Westover. Wow. That was the best word I can find to describe the challenges this young author has faced and her perseverance and subsequent accomplishments. Although released in 2018, this award-winning memoir is especially poignant now in the midst of increasing awareness of mental health challenges, survivalist mentality, and the distrust of government and medical authorities. **PLEASE NOTE…We will meet in Fellowship Hall on October 26th, not the Heritage Room. This is just for the October 26th meeting. If you prefer to meet by Zoom call Patti Walz at 315-382-0977 and those arrangements will be made.

Contact Rev. Walz revwalz@gmail.com or call the church office 856-235-0450 if you would like to join “Eureka!”
