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 February 17 from 4-6 p.m. as we discuss the Gospel of Thomas. What makes this book different than the gospels included in the Bible? What more can we learn about Jesus from this text? All are welcome!

  • conversations with scripture

    Reading the Bible is never one-sided. We 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. In January we are studying the book of Ecclesiastes on 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.

    We will be reading, Courageous Faith: How to Rise and Resist in a Time of Fear by UCC Pastor Emily Heath, January 20 at 6:30 p.m. Get your book now. If you need a book ordered for you, please let the Kirk office know.
