Conversation in Spanish Returns
Thursday, September 14, 2023 at 3 pm.

Do you already know Spanish and want to grow in your ability to Speak Spanish.

The purpose of the Conversation Group is to allow individuals who already speak some Spanish an opportunity to  continue growing in their ability to become more fluent in the language.  It is not a class to teach Spanish.  Group meetings are held once a week for one hour at Grace Lutheran Church. For more information contact, in English, Juan Guzman at 


New Book Starts November 2
The Wisdom Seekers Book Group will be starting a new book on Thursday, November 2nd – The First Christmas: What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus’s Birth by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan, described as a fresh, deep, and new understanding of the nativity story, enabling us to better appreciate the powerful message of the Gospels.”
Meetings are at noon every Thursday via Zoom, covering about 30 pages each week. 
Please join us for some fun discussions!  If you would like to do so, please contact Mark Klopsch at so that he can add you to the Zoom invitation.
