Book Discussion Group

As Christian women living in and not apart from our world, we in Presbyterian Women hope to offer a safe environment for women to meet to discuss the challenges and opportunities of life as presented in the selected books.

Meets the fourth Wednesday of each month year-round from 12:30 pm to 00:00 pm; bring a snack or bag lunch; a refrigerator is available.

Where:  Highland’s Room 208

Book lists:  Available at the church office by contacting Donna Stettler at 717-569-2651 or info@HighlandPC.org. Books have been reviewed by a volunteer facilitator or spontaneously by the group. It is hoped that each person will be familiar with the book selected for that month. Participants are encouraged to offer insights and opinions from their personal experiences in a safe environment. Books for the following year are chosen from rbooks suggested by those attending the final meeting of the year. Books are chosen from a broad range of subject matter including one classic or non-fiction book.
