These are fictionalized accounts based on the Biblical scriptures with a powerful message of grace throughout. We will be meeting on four Tuesdays this summer (June 5th, June 26th, July 10th, and July 24th) at in the Lee’s Crossing clubhouse. Our books have to be ordered from out of the country, so we have to order them by May 5th or so to get them back in time for our first meeting. Childcare is available by reservation.

Newsletter by E-Mail
Quite a few of us have signed up to receive the newsletter via e-mail. If you haven’t done so, please consider a few advantages. Getting the newsletter via e-mail not only saves money for the HOA, but also saves paper. You will also get the e-mail version earlier than the paper version (depending on editor/stringer schedules, maybe several days earlier). Having a mostly e-mail distribution allows a later cut-off date for articles and also allows events the first couple of days of the month to be included in the current newsletter. Please consider signing up for e-mail delivery. Send your request to email@example.com.
For those of you who are already signed up for e-mail distribution – if your e-mail address changes, please make sure to notify us!
