Book Clubs // Summer 2016

May 22, 2016  |  Benjamin Jensen

“Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.”  – Mortimer Adler

Things around Tempe slow down in the summer heat. And we encourage our Redemption Communities (small groups) to take June and July off to give the Leaders a break and to have fun together outside of the regular RC gatherings.

But have no fear….In place of RCs, we offer Book Clubs in June and July. Book Clubs are a great way to meet people while going through some good and thought-provoking writing with others. Book Clubs are led by a facilitator and meet at various locations and days/times. They are 3-5 weeks in length.
