Friday Film SeriesTeaching Thursday

Combining food, fellowship, and education, these programs and classes are provided for members of our congregation and for the community at large. All programs are free. Leaders vary from week to week; most are from our congregation. If you come for the dinners as well, a contribution of $10 is requested. (Please call the church office at 561-627-6105, for dinner reservations.) Come for just dinner — just the programs–or both!

This year we are honoring the centennial of the Pulitzer Prizes by reading several of their fiction winners from earlier years, as well as the 2016 winner.
