New Book Started January 18

The Wisdom Seekers Book Group will be starting a new book on Thursday, January 18th – The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride.  An NPR review states, “As he’s done throughout his spectacular writing career, McBride looks squarely at savage truths about race and prejudice, but he also insists on humor and hope.”

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.


Conversation in Spanish Returns
Thursdays 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
