This is a closed meeting for AA members and those who suffer from their own alcoholism, for anyone in the broader community or church.
We welcome all those who like to read and discuss books. We read an eclectic mix of both fiction and nonfiction as recommended by the Book Group participants. We like books that illustrate the lives of people that are different from our own, showcase a current topic, illustrate great writing, or inform us about outlook. Check the BHX, church bulletins and weekly emails for dates, times, and book selections. Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings, whether you have read the book or not. We are also interested in hearing your suggestions of books to read. Please contact Mary Hickey or Marilyn Allen for further information, or contact us below.

The program is specially designed to meet the social and emotional needs of men who are experiencing memory loss due to diagnosed dementia. Participants gather with trained staff and committed volunteers four days a week to socialize with peers, share common interests and experiences, and enjoy therapeutic, social and physical activities.
IPC is comprised of members of the Bradley Hills and Bethesda Jewish Congregation communities. The purpose is to design and create opportunities for mutual education, worship, mission, and advocacy opportunities. If you are part of an interfaith couple or wish to build on the inter-faith sharing strength of our two congregations, join us! For questions, contact the current coordinator at ICP below.
