Young Adult Book Discussion  5/24/16  (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Many of us have heard of the novel "The Shack" but never actually read it. It's been made into a movie that will be released later this year.

The book has been highly recommended as a parable for exploring our relationship with God. All young adults (ages 18-35, single and married) are invited to join us for a potluck dinner and book discussion on Tuesday, May 24, at 7 PM in the Youth Room.

About The Shack: Mackenzie Allen Phillips’s youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in this midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.
