Book Group w/ Nursery School
Union Cong's book discussion group has joined the Nursery School Group which meets monthly at 8 PM. The next gathering is January 23, 2018 for a discussion of Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan.
"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. Check back for 2018 selections.
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!
