The Vanishing American Adult is a 2017 book by United States Senator Ben Sasse.

In the book, Sasse describes Americans as “a drifting and aimless people — awash in material goods and yet spiritually aching for meaning.” He calls on parents to take control over their children’s education, argue that children need to learn to work hard, resist consumerism, read widely, and live for a while in a place different from their home – although it need not be far from home.
Bring your lunch! Please feel free to invite other people you know that enjoy reading – all are welcome!


Take a journey to Japan with the Skidmores.

Wednesday, February 21, at 5 pm for a light Japanese meal followed by David’s presentation on their trip. 

The meal prepared by David and Joanne will likely include sushi, miso soup, a chicken cream soup, sticky rice and some other Japanese dishes. Both chop sticks and silverware will be available.

Sign-up in clip-board alley or email them by Sunday, February 11, so they can plan for the food and table settings. Questions, please speak with David and Joanne,


 Wednesday, 1:30 pm (October through June)

The lectionary group takes an in-depth look at the upcoming Sunday scriptures, including looking at the history and theology of a given passage. Needless to say, that makes listening to the sermon on Sunday a much more rewarding experience. This class isn’t sequential, so feel free to drop in on any Wednesday.


Thursday, 10 am (October through May)

Chasing Canonical Characters

We’ll begin by viewing (and talking about, of course) a video from the Biblical Archaeology Association in which Phyllis Trible from Union Theological Seminary presents a series on people from the Bible. It’s titled Chasing Canonical Characters. It should prove interesting! Thursday mornings beginning at 10.
