Join us for a discussion of a book study at John G's Tap Room at 109 West Main Street on the beautiful downtown Washington landing over-looking the Missouri river beginning Tuesday, April 9 from 6-7:30 pm.  No, you don't have to drink beer or know about the Bible to be a part of this community group.  If you would like to drink a coke, tea or have a glass of wine instead, that will be great.  If you know a ton about the Bible or you have never heard of the Bible, this is for you.  We are joining for fellowship and healthy discussions over the book, MAKING SENSE OF THE BIBLE: REDISCOVERING the POWER of SCRIPTURE TODAY. If you have questions, please contact Catherine Merseal at
