Book Club
Wednesday  |  September 26th  |  11:30 am  |  Flippen Chapel
In September, the Book Club will be reading and discussing The Glass Castle – A Memoir by Jeannette Walls: The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered. The Glass Castle is truly astonishing – a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family. Please join us in Flippen Chapel with a sack lunch and participate in an interesting book discussion.

Saturday  |  September 29th  |  10:00 am  |  McAulay Hall
Come enjoy the fellowship of women at First Presbyterian Church! Rev. Tamara John, Director of Hope for Life RV Ministry in Huntington Beach, will speak to us about her ministry that offers both spiritual and practical help to people in need. Light refreshments will be served. Bring a friend! About Hope for Life RV Ministry: Hope for Life Chapel (HFLC) RV Ministry, serves people who live at an RV park on a permanent as well as short-term, transitional basis. Some have lost their homes, are going through divorce, are sick and need to be near a hospital, or because of their choices or other people’s choices, are in an upside-down emotional situation. Others have simply chosen a more reclusive, nomadic lifestyle. Physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs are being met as personal relationships develop and grow. People who live day-to-day under dark clouds of despair have begun to open up to Jesus’ love and engage with others. God’s infinite mercy offers a glimmer of hope. They see that His great grace remains even when personal storms hit.
