Next Christian Book Club Meeting

We had a really good time sharing the questions on the book, Song of my Soul by Ginny Aiken.  I broke up the questions and gave them out so others could get in on the act.  It really freed up the conversation.  The next book is The Journey by Billy Graham.  We have them in stock, so come and get them.  The book club will meet at 7:00pm on June 28th, or the last Thursday of the month.  Come join the fun at the Book Brake.
