YAL Book Club

Join us for a book club! We will meet every other week while the pandemic lasts and then slow down to once a month once we are able to gather in public again.
We will start with The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. Available on Amazon in just about any format you could hope for, kindle book being the cheapest at $2.99.
RSVP on Facebook or email rachelw@stmatthewcatholic.org and let us know that you are coming!

If you aren’t sure you’ll be able to make every meeting, just come the first time and see if it’s for you!

Ever hopeful that we will be able to gather soon, I’ve only listed the first 2 dates here, and we will plan ahead bit by bit as the weeks move forward.

First Meeting: April 29, 2020 at 7:00 pm via Zoom, read the first 5 letters

Second Meeting: May 13, 2020 at 7:00 pm via Zoom (most likely), read letters 6-10

We will be playing it by ear after the second meeting, hoping for some updates about the restrictions on gathering.

YAL Bible Study: Ephesians

 

Join us for a Bible study! We will meet every other week, starting on May
We will start with St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.

 

We will read 2 chapters per meeting. The whole letter is only 6 chapters long, so this particular book will only take us 3 meetings. After that, we can all pick a the next topic together.

RSVP on Facebook or email rachelw@stmatthewcatholic.org and let us know that you are coming!

If you aren’t sure you’ll be able to make every meeting, just come the first time and see if it’s for you!

Meeting Dates for Ephesians:

First Meeting: May 6, 2020 at 7 pm via Zoom, read Ephesians 1-2

Second Meeting: May 20, 2020 at 7 pm via Zoom (most likely), read Ephesians 3-4

Third Meeting: June 3, 200 at 7 pm, read Ephesians 5-6
