Bethany Book Club

is a small group that usually meets on the third Friday of each month and is open to all men and women of the congregation.  Our standard meeting time is 9:15 AM at members’ homes or in Bethany’s Fellowship Hall.  Meetings last about two hours and a light breakfast is served.  We love our lively discussions. 

Books are selected from group members’ recommendations.  A variety of fiction and non-fiction genre make up the choices.
