  • The Third Thursday will be a book club at First Baptist.
  • The Fourth Wednesday will be at Covenant and feature a variety of presentations of specific interest to seniors.

Anyone from our faith communities is invited and encouraged to participate.

All sessions will begin at Noon and will conclude by 1:30:
