Book Study and Discussion on the Opiate Epidemic, Wednesday, July 26 at 7pm

The opiate epidemic is raging through our country and has affected the lives of many people in our congregation and our community. Dreamland by Sam Quinones takes a multifaceted approach to the subject, profiling people from all walks of life, ranging from citizens of impoverished Mexican ranchos to young affluent white athletes, all cogs in the wheel of the latest drug epidemic. Everyone is invited to join us in reading this award-winning treatment of the subject, and then gather for a conversation about it on Wednesday, July 26 at 7:00pm. Copies of the book will be available in the church office, or talk to one of the pastors to reserve yours.

Our mission is to follow Jesus Christ by doing justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly with God.
