Adult Small Group Studies

Summer Book Discussion Group, 2022

First Meeting on June 30th at 10:00am.

Book Discussion Group

Ready to try something new? Come to a book discussion group. This group will focus on a work of fiction, that will be chosen by the group and meet monthly. The first meeting will meet Thursday, June 30th at 10:00am at the church. This month’s selection is be A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.

About the book (from the back cover):

At first sight, Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet, a curmudgeon with staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People think him bitter, and he thinks himself surrounded by idiots.
Ove’s well-ordered, solitary world gets a shake-up one November morning with the appearance of new neighbors- a chatty young couple and their two boisterous daughters- who announce their arrival by accidentally flattening Ove’s mailbox with their U-Haul. What follows is a heartwarming reassessment of the one person they thought they had all figured out.
