Mequon — Crossroads Presbyterian Church, 6031 W Chapel Hill Road, will hold a book study and offer a speaker series on Wednesday evenings this winter.
The book discussion will center on Debby Irving's "Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race" and be led by Crossroads Interim Associate Pastor Chris Spotts. The book "recounts the story of the author’s realization about what it means to be white in America" and "provides a challenging, but accessible, entry into the conversation about the often unintended and unconscious biases that we all share."
The study will be held 7 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 11 through March 29.
Additionally, the church is offering a four-week speaker series addressing challenges older adults and their families face, called "Negotiating the Late-in-Life Years." The speakers will be offered from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m. with a question-and-answer session after each speaker. There are various subjects relating to this topic with a number of speakers scheduled.
Barbara Horstmeyer of Senior Planning Group will speak Jan. 18 on service options for senior living. On Jan. 25, Michelle Putz of Ovation Communities will speak about Medicare benefits. Bruce Nemovitz, a real estate specialist, will speak Feb. 1 on housing transitions. Finally, on Feb. 8, Crossroads Senior Pastor Rev. Scott Hauser will talk about the Christian perspective on aging.
