Interest Groups > Day Book Group


Meeting Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to Noon with lunch served at 11:30 a.m. Combine your love of reading with your study of the Bible. Join us for our daytime women’s book group to read and discuss scripturally based novels and inspirational books. Our focus will be on titles that are grounded in stories and events from the Bible and that take us to the story between the lines. We will explore books that take us to both the Old and New Testaments. Whether you are a newcomer to Christian writers or a longtime fan of this genre, you will enjoy sharing the stories, inspirations and discussions generated by these books. We welcome both beginning Bible students and intermediate scholars. We are non-denominational and ecumenical in our approach to Christian literature. Call 402.359.4288 to reserve. The group will be coordinated by volunteer Judith Barnes, who also facilitates our evening book group. Judith has a background in Christian publishing, library science, and book reviewing. She belongs to the book group at her Episcopal parish and to a secular book group. She is the program director for Daughters of the King and leads a weekly women’s Bible study group at her parish. Fee: $12 includes lunch served at 11:30 a.m., reservations are required.
