A note from the Deacons: Norfield Church welcomes all congregants to join us for in-person worship in the Norfield Sanctuary as well as online via YouTube. The Holy Spirit is truly alive at Norfield, and fills our Sanctuary every Sunday as we join our hearts together in prayer, music, faith and devotion to Jesus Christ. Please feel free to wear a mask if you choose; we will also provide masks to those who need one. To learn more visit Connecticut's COVID-19 guidelines.

Norfield Open Door Book Club

Please join us in person or online for Norfield Church's next Open Door Book Club in December!

Please join us for our next Open Door Book Club on Wednesday, December 13th at 7:30 pm.

Last month our members enjoyed reading James McBride’s, The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store, a fascinating and heart-healing novel set in a historically Black and immigrant Jewish neighborhood in Pennsylvania during the 1930's. The novel explores the lives of formerly enslaved people living there as they face the challenges and triumphs of living on the margins of white, Christian America.

For our next meeting in December, our group chose The Museum of Failures by Thrity Umrigar. Umrigar is the author of nine novels, including the notable bestseller Honor, a Reese's Book Club pick. It's an immersive story about family secrets and the power of forgiveness. It promises to be a fun read and it will be nice for all of us to gather during the holiday season.

This time we will be meeting at the home of Ginny Awn, 381 Riverside Avenue in Westport. As always, there will be a Zoom option. We are always open to suggestions of books to read for future meetings, and all are welcome to participate in this group!

If you haven't been to our Book Club before, we're excited to have you. Please contact Tracy and she'll add you to the list and provide you with a Zoom link to join our meetings online. You can reach her at tracypen@sbcglobal.net or phone (203) 536-9321. We hope to see you there!
