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

    We will gather at Brightmarten at 730 South University from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, June 23. We will be discussing baptism and the power of water as a part of our summer series: Down by the Riverside. What does baptism mean to you? What does it mean to God? Is the form of baptism fixed or flexible? How does this answer impact the church universal? Come be a part of the conversation.

  • kirk book group

    Our book group will not meet in June or July but will resume in August. If you are looking for some books this summer consider:

    The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker, Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans or Resist, and Persist by Erin Wathen. If you read any of these, let Selena know as small groups will be gathering to discuss many of these themes in the coming months.

  • conversations with scripture

    We gather every Tuesday in the choir room from 2-3 p.m. to engage with our holy text.  In June we will be studying 2 Corinthians.

  • 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.
