Monthly Mission Book Group

3rd Wednesday of the Month
7 PM in the Westcott Room of Second Presbyterian Church

The group meets most months to read and discuss the particular book selected.  Sometimes we have the author and guest speakers share about the particular topic.  All are welcome even if you only read the first chapter or haven’t cracked open the book.  There is a place for everyone.
