Submit orders and find payment information HERE.
 
Reading the World Book Group: The chosen book for February is an historical novel, The Personal Librarian, written by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray. This is the story of Belle La Costa Green – the brilliant librarian (and multi-skilled art collector) who was almost single-handedly responsible for the early development of the collection of old and rare books and art at the JP Morgan Library in New York. Her passion also  made it possible for any one of us to visit that library!  She was one of the most successful women of the early 20th century, but she carried a secret that could have brought her world crashing down around her. Join the lively conversation at the next meeting of Reading the World Book Group on February 13th at 1 PM on Zoom. Contact Cathy Gray through the church office or visit the book group webpage.
 
Ash Wednesday Services: Ash Wednesday worship services this year will be offered on February 22nd at 12 Noon and at 7 PM. All are welcome.
