Summer Reading Program for Grown-ups
Remember when your teacher sent home a list of books that you should read over the summer?
Now that you are a grown-up, you can read any romance, thriller or sci-fi novel you want.
But wouldn’t you like to read something with a little more substance, maybe a book about how your shopping habits affect others or how one woman prayed for strangers as she was led by God? Maybe books about social justice or how our culture affects our beliefs are more to your liking.
Grace UMW has the answer for you. Books are available to borrow from the church library or through Centre County Library. Reading lists and tracking forms are in the lobby at the front of the sanctuary. Readers of 5 books, one in each noted category, are eligible for recognition at the District United Methodist Women’s meeting. Books must be read by DECEMBER 1, 2018 to qualify.
Readers of one book in any category will get a chance to win a $25 gift card to Brothers Pizza in Centre Hall. One book must be completed by August 31, 2018. For more info contact Jane Taylor at 777-1099 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Grace Church has a prayer chain for immediate prayer needs that cannot wait until Sunday. Calls with requests should go to Jane Taylor at 364-1857 or you can contact the church office at 364-1701. You will also be asked if the name should be published on the prayer list in the bulletin. If you would like to add your name as a member of the prayer chain, please contact Jane Taylor at 364-1857 or the church office.
