get involved

Are you looking for community? You will find it here. Whether you find it through book discussion, singing, in thoughtful discussion over a casual drink, studying scripture or more, there is a small group for everyone.

  • Theology on tap

    Discussions of God and faith do not only belong within the walls of a church. Our faith accompanies us everywhere we go. Monthly we gather at Hanson's Grill and Tavern (1301 S. Pearl St.) for discussions of depth. Topics range from Queer Theology to Immigration Theology, Separation of Church and State to violence and Liberation Theology. Our next gathering is December 9 from 4-6 p.m. as we discuss our relationship with God. What choices do we have in our engagement with God? Why does God make promises to us? How do we consent to God?

  • conversations with scripture

    Reading the Bible is never one-sided. We always bring our questions, experiences, knowledge and wisdom to all that we read. At the Kirk we embrace this as we study the Bible, listening to the story of God and God's people but still engaging from who and where we are. We meet Tuesdays at 2 p.m.

  • faithful adulting

    Adulting is not easy. Adulting while striving to live your faith can be a challenge. This group of 20-40 somethings gathers monthly for a meal, a conversation, or to celebrate life events. Because we believe adulting is better in community.

  • choir

    Our choir will sing a piece of classical music written hundreds of years ago one week, a protest song from the 60's the next, and a song from a recent musical the week after that. Our choir gathers Thursdays at 7 p.m. to rehearse and shares their gift of music with the church from Sept-May. All are welcome to participate no matter your music knowledge or experience.

  • green justice team

    For 10 years the Kirk has been living our faith through caring for our shared earth, installing solar panels in 2007, making building decisions based on their enviromental impact. From brick and mortar decisions to educational classes on composting, and this year's effort for every member to plant a tree or 20, this team guides our church to honor God's creation as an act of love.

  • kirk book group

    Once we have chosen a book, we dive in, and we dive deep. We read slowly and discuss a book, not once for overall themes, but multiple times, reading only a few chapters at a time. The insights we gain from reading in community guide us to more engagement with the topic. We meet twice a month in the Community Room. Even if you are not reading along with us, all are welcome to join in on the conversation. We are currently reading "Sabbath as Resistance" by Walter Brueggemann.
