Book ClubDo you have a passion for reading and discussion of a good book? Then join the First Olympia book club and share that passion in fellowship! 


Join the First Olympia Book Group in the Gathering Place on the 2nd Friday of each month at 10 am.

June:  Choose books for the September – May sessions for next year.

From time to time, other books are recommended throughout the year.  It’s a time for fellowship, sharing and an opportunity to expand your learning horizons.  Contact the church office for additional information. 

This particular book group that has gathered at the Methodist Church has been in existence since 1964.  Of course, the attendees, as well as the books, have changed throughout the years.
