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

    All are welcome to join us for a deep but casual discussion each month at Theology on Tap. This month we will gather on April 14 from 4-6 p.m. at Hanson's Grill and Tavern located at 1301 S Pearl St. We will be discussing Progressive Christiainity's understanding of Holy Week including the significance of the Last Supper and Good Friday for our daily living. Bring your questions about the theology of crucifixion and resurrection, and we we wrestle through this difficult week together. Great conversations await. Join us!

    Childcare is available at the Kirk.

  • kirk book group

    We are reading, Courageous Faith by UCC Pastor, Emily Heath. The intro to the book reads: “Resistance is at the heart of the Christian faith; its right there in our baptismal vows, when we promise to stand up to anything that would take the place of Christ. In times of fear and injustice, people of faith must develop the spiritual courage necessary to proclaim another way. This book lays out a spiritual path towards courage that will first transform us, and then transform the world.”

    Join us in the conversation. We will meet March 10 and 24.

  • 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 September-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.
