    Curious About Ruth Group?

    All women of the church and community are welcome to attend this monthly book group.  The group is named after the biblical Book of Ruth – a story of women supporting each other.  Ruth tells her mother-in-law, Naomi, “…Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay”. We go places with each other – through the books we read and discuss together and through the life experiences we share.  We choose a variety of fiction and non-fiction books that we hope will encourage the expression of our own thoughts, deepen our bonds of friendship, stimulate our thinking, and provide us with different perspectives. Book Ends usually offers a discount on our selections.

    Please join us!

    We meet once a month at someone’s home, generally on the third Sunday of the month from 7-9 PM.  You are welcome whether or not you have read the book and new participants are always welcome.  You can drift in and drift out as your motivation, interest and schedule permit.  Decaf coffee & tea, and simple desserts are offered by the host. Check the church calendar for updates to dates, host homes and book titles. Contact this year’s co-coordinators with any questions – Anne Hoenicke and Kaye Nash.
