Book Group w/ Nursery School

Union Cong's book discussion group has joined the Nursery School Group which meets monthly at 8 PM. The first book club meeting will be October 24th at 8pm, in the Cole Room and the book is Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.

"Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood - and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster."

Too Many Books, Not Enough Time

We are a reading congregation. We highlight at least two books a year for a Congregational Read.  Our Congregational Reads are usually of a theological bent and are discussed during 2nd Hour. On Sunday, Nov. 19 we will discuss Beyond the Comma, by Rober Chase. 

"The comma is a simple mark of punctuation. It separates all that has come before from whatever is to follow. Likewise, on the journey of life, we encounter those “comma times”—some intricately planned and self-created (a sabbatical; a day of reflection; a solitary prayer); others are imposed, sometimes violently or without warning, by external forces."

The Schneidewind Library

One of Union Cong’s many resources is its library, located above the Assembly Room behind the sliding glass doors. A cozy, comfortable room, it is the home to an impressive collection of books on Christianity and other world religions, spirituality, prayer, grief, church history, the Bible and biblical interpretation and a host of other related topics. We continue to update and add to the collection, incorporating prominent contemporary voices into the collection. 
To explore our collection, browse the on-line catalog to read a description of our books and read reviews by other readers. 
Want to check out a book? Stop by the library anytime. Just complete a check out slip, located on the table in the library. The suggested loan period is four weeks. When you’re done, just return your book to the “Returns” container in the library. Or browse our once-a-month book display in the Assembly Room after church during coffee hour. Check it out!
