The Book Study Group organizes itself around authors who focus on living more fully from one’s soul in the second half of life. The life of Christ is often used by such authors as a paradigm for this.
Please email Izabella for meeting dates and location, with any other questions, or to join the group.
This group seeks to connect with those in their 20s and 30s (or so!) as we discuss spirituality and enjoy social time together. Connect with the 20s/30s Group on Facebook at this link. We have brunch at a nearby restaurant on the 2nd Sunday of the month. Meet us at the back of the church after the 10:30 service.

July 19, 2018, 7:30PM, Grace’s front lawn: A People's History of Chicago by Kevin Coval (One Book, One Oak Park selection). From OPPL website: “Named Best Chicago Poet by the Chicago Reader, Kevin Coval channels Howard Zinn to celebrate the Windy City’s hidden history. In 77 poems (for the city’s 77 neighborhoods), Coval honors the everyday lives and enduring resistance of the city’s workers, poor people, and people of color, whose cultural and political revolutions continue to shape the social landscape of Chicago.” Copies are on reserve for Grace at the main library.

We draw on the wealth of resources we have in our community to host topical series on issues relevant to a life of faith today. Topics range from historical theology to the Bible to current social issues. Additionally, look for an ongoing Adult Forum series on the first Sunday of the month, designed especially for those who are busy in choir or leading children’s and youth formation the other Sundays. No registration is needed, just show up!
