The Local Book Club

For Wonderers and Wanderers

Summer Podcast Series.png
 

The Local Book Club is going all in on podcasts this summer! Instead of meeting to discuss one book per month, we’ll meet every two weeks to dig into a couple podcasts. Our Book Club facilitator, Sara Tiegreen, has excellent taste and has curated a collection of podcasts that will accompany wonderers and wanderers alike on their journeys of life and faith. Each gathering will feature two podcasts that connect with a theme or topic related to the Bible or what it means to follow Jesus, intersecting with other areas of life, too. Whether you’ve listened to the podcasts or not, all are welcome!

All sessions will take place at Breakaway Café in Briar Chapel from 7:30-9 pm.
