Christian Readers

At First Presbyterian Church we believe there are many ways to grow in relationship with God.


Our Christian Readers group provides an opportunity to combine the desire to grow that relationship with one’s love of reading. The convenience of an online reading group provides the flexibility to read and participate at your convenience and on your schedule without having to leave your home. The group discusses the book selection in a private Facebook group and the discussion sets the reading pace. Books selections are added throughout the year.

Current Books

  • The Epic of Eden: A Christian Entry into the Old Testament

    Starting June 5, 2016

    We are excited to announce a new online Christian Reading Group. Starting the week of June 5th the group will read and discuss its summer selection, The Epic of Eden: A Christian Entry into the Old Testament by Dr. Sandra L. Richter, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College in a private Facebook group. The initial plan is to spend a week discussing each chapter of the book but the group discussion will ultimately set the reading pace.  


    The Christian Reading Group is open to community. One does not need to be a member to participate. Participants should plan on providing their own book and any desired supplemental reference material. To join the group, visit the FPCRutherford Christian Readers group page here .
