Book Club will meet at Mt. Tabor


The Mt. Tabor United Church of Christ book group will begin a new book, “Between Heaven and Ground Zero: One Woman’s Struggle for Survival and Faith in the Ashes of 9/11" by Leslie Haskin. The three-session book discussion will occur every other Monday night beginning Jan. 20. You can watch a documentary free on Amazon Prime or rent it. There is also a movie trailer you can watch at no charge.
