Book title:

The Girls of Atomic City

by Denise Kiernan

(Read the first 4 chapters for discussion on that date)


An incredible true story of the top-secret World War II town of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and the young women brought there unknowingly to help build the atomic bomb.

At the height of World War II, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was home to 75,000 residents, and consumed more electricity than New York City, yet it was shrouded in such secrecy that it did not appear on any map. Thousands of civilians, many of them young women from small towns across the U.S., were recruited to this secret city, enticed by the promise of solid wages and war-ending work. What were they actually doing there? Very few knew. The purpose of this mysterious government project was kept a secret from the outside world and from the majority of the residents themselves.
 
Drawing from the voices and experiences of the women who lived and worked in Oak Ridge, The Girls of Atomic City rescues a remarkable, forgotten chapter of World War II from obscurity. Denise Kiernan captures the spirit of the times through these women: their pluck, their desire to contribute, and their enduring courage

SIMON PETER BOOKJoin Us for Lenten Study!

Simon Peter - Flawed but Faithful Disciple

Simon Peter—an ordinary fisherman who heard an extraordinary call.

Thursdays beginning March 7 through April 11

  • 10:30 am at Homewood
  • 6:30 pm at Grace (with pizza)

Adults

The adult Sunday School class meets every Sunday morning from 9:45 to 10:45 and all are welcome, so don't feel shy - we have a very friendly, accepting group.

 

Youth/Teens

Our Youth Class (for grades 6-12) meets on the 2nd floor in the outer office area at 9:45 on Sunday mornings during the school year.

 

Children

Our elementary-aged kids have their own "mini-Church" during the second part of our 11:00 worship service. We use a curriculum called DeepBlue (www.deepbluekids.com), which incorporates Bible lessons, crafts, songs and other fun activities. Each Sunday, all elementary school kids (K-5) are invited to join us as we leave the Sanctuary after the children's sermon. (Our nursery is available year-round during the entire worship service for children 5 years and younger.)

 

For the grown-ups: We are always happy to have additional volunteers to help lead our Children's Church using a pre-planned, easy-to-use curriculum. Teachers will take turns on a rotating basis and NOT serve more than once a month. Please help with this amazing new way to reach our kids and make a real difference in their lives! Please speak with Pastor Rob or Jean Barrick to help.

 

Upper Room Devotionals

Devotional booklets are available in the Narthex for anyone who would like a resource for daily prayer. There are regular and large-print versions, and there is no cost for the booklets, although donations are gladly accepted.
