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.
Once a month we gather at The Table Public House (2190 S Platte River Dr, Denver, CO 80223) with those from 6th Avenue UCC for spirited conversations. Bring your questions and your wisdom, as we journey together to find meaning in our faith, our daily lives, and our understandings of God.
Every Tuesday at 1 p.m. we gather in the Kirk Welcome Center and on Zoom for Bible Study. We'll read sacred text and ask questions, then discuss and listen for the different answers scripture leads us to. Currently we are in a lectionary study, focusing on the reading that will occur the following Sunday. It is a fun way to prepare for the upcoming sermon and glean more!
Do you like to sing? Have you enjoyed the offerings of the Kirk choir in the past? Our choir is back to weekly practices and is looking for new members to join in on the singing and the community! We are gathering in the Sanctuary to rehearse on Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. We welcome singers of all skill and music levels. Contact Greg at Greg@gregorycooke.com with questions.
One of the Kirk’s vital ministries is to care for God’s Creation. The Green Justice Team provides leadership for this ministry through a triple effort of education, reflection, and action. First, we strive to educate and inform ourselves in just and sustainable solutions. Second, we encourage people in our congregation to reflect on their choices and adopt more sustainable practices. Third, we reach out and join hands with the broader community of faith and civic organizations that are committed to eco-justice. We have partnered with Together Colorado and 350 Colorado to advocate for meaningful climate action in our community. We strive to promote green justice solutions on every level, from personal to global.
Each year the Kirk’s Green Justice Team takes up a primary focus, and this year it has been on food justice. Knowing that everything is interconnected in the web of life, we reflect on the intersections between food justice, social justice, racial justice, economic justice, and climate justice. In focusing on one aspect, we focus on them all. To that end, we have partnered with the Kirk’s Mission Team to deliver over 1000 pounds of rice and beans to the local food bank, Metro Caring, and held a rice and beans “cook off” luncheon, finding delicious ways to modify our diets in the direction of food equity and sustainability.
