This group of Presbyterians and friends in the community has been active since January 2000. 

New members and "drop-ins" are always welcome! Feel free to check with any member of the group about participating. Contact the group at fpcbookgroup@googlegroups.com.

 

Except where noted the group meets on the last Sunday of the month at 7:00 p.m.

We meet in a downstairs meeting room in the main building at the

Bell Trace Retirement Community off of East 10th Street.

NOTE: Since March, 2020, and until further notice, the group has been meeting virtually via Zoom. The required link is sent out via email. As of August, 2021, the group is beginning to meet in person. Contact the group (email above) or any member of the group for details.
