At Acacia Park, we invite you to . . .
CONNECT with others as part of a community that strives to practice forgiveness, grace, and genuine hospitality;
WONDER with us at the mystery that is God, a mystery to be experienced rather than solved;
CELEBRATE with us, giving thanks for God’s blessings to us and presence in us;
SHARE your gifts and passions to care for others in the community; share your burdens and experience the healing love of Christ.

December Book Club Selection
All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot.
From the publisher: Delve into the magical, unforgettable world of James Herriot, the world’s most beloved veterinarian, and his menagerie of heartwarming, funny, and tragic animal patients. For over 40 years, generations of readers have thrilled to Herriot’s marvelous tales, deep love of life, and extraordinary storytelling abilities. For decades, Herriot roamed the remote, beautiful Yorkshire Dales, treating every patient that came his way from smallest to largest, and observing animals and humans alike with his keen, loving eye. You can purchase a copy at Thrift Books.
December book club meets Tuesday, December 15th, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom. To join our Zoom book club discussion, please email us at email@example.com for log on information.
