Thank for your One Book, One Church Participation

Thank for your One Book, One Church Participation

The Intentional Faith Development/Adult Christian Education Committee, along with the Green Earth Team and United Methodist Women thank all of you who read The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, watched the movie, participated in a discussion, or were moved by William’s witness to perseverance to make a donation to a Malawi-focused charity. 

We hope to select another book for a One Book, One Church discussion, but the IFD/ACE committee would really appreciate your input. Please share any suggestions with Pastor Stephanie, Sherron Shuffield, or Cheryl Runyon. See you on Zoom (or maybe even in person) soon!
