ECC Book Club

The Elkville Christian Church book club is a delightful group of readers who want to welcome you among our numbers! We choose a new book every month, of widely differing genres and topics, to accommodate as many reading preferences as we can. So far, we’ve read fictionalized accounts of Biblical icons, mysteries, romances, historical fiction, thrillers, historical non-fiction . . . . And we’re forever looking for new titles and great new reads! If you are a reader, too, please come to our book club get-togethers at 7:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month, book in hand and commentary and questions at the ready. (It also helps if you are a fan of tea and cookies or cake, as the book club works up quite a thirst and appetite as we discuss our books . . . .)
