Ring in the New Year with Our Intergenerational Book Gathering

How can we use literature as a catalyst to deepen our faith? Children in grades k-6,
their parents and all other interested adults are invited to read The Lion, the Witch and

games and small group discussions to explore the book’s Christian themes. We will meet in
room 221 January 27 from 10-10:50am and 11:20am-12pm. Twenty copies of the book
are available for borrowing –check one out from the church office. Questions? Contact
facilitator, Anne Kiemle: 425-649-9388 or annekiemle@zipcon.net.
