INTRODUCING: FBC BOOK LOVERS

The First Baptist media center announces a new book club for our church members. If you like to read, please consider joining with others who are also book lovers for a lively discussion. Our first gathering will be Sunday, Nov. 5, at 5 p.m. in the church library. The meeting will last until approximately 6:30.

We will be discussing Vanishing Grace by Philip Yancey. Some of you may be familiar with an earlier book by Yancey entitled What’s So Amazing about Grace? The meeting will mean more to you if you have read the book beforehand, but this is not required. There is one copy of the book in our library, and our public library will borrow the book from other libraries if you will present your library card for checkout.

Please consider becoming a book club member!
