WINE: Women in the New Evangelization strives to connect women. One of our favorite ways to do so is through the Read Between the WINEs Book Club, and (at least) three times a year (Lent, Summer, & Advent) you can join us as we offer our Read Between the WINEs Book Club online! What we refer to as the Virtual Vineyard.
This is the perfect place to learn how to run a successful New WINE small group, to glean insights for your own small group, and to meet women just like you who are enthusiastic about WINE.
Each book is a simple read for any woman at any point in her spiritual journey. All of the books are written in such a way that you feel as though the author is talking with you over a latte (or a glass of Chardonnay). And at the same time, they contain a depth of theological truths and teachings.
These books introduce women not only to life-changing relationships with other women in the small group setting but also to a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ.
Each book will come with a WINE-exclusive journal, which includes questions to ponder, space to write, and additional reflections to enhance your reading. Promotional ideas and meeting guidelines will provide everything you need to start your book club.
IT’S EASY TO JOIN! SIMPLY FOLLOW THESE FOUR STEPS….
