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.
On August 22 at 4 p.m. we will gather for Theology on Tap. Selena will let everyone know if this will be hybrid or online once she returns from sabbatical. We will be discussing theology of relationships. How do our relationships teach us about God? How do we grow in our spirituality through our relationships with other people. Stay tuned for weekly emails to see how to connect on August 22.
The Anti-Racism Team will be taking a break for the month of July. Their next meeting will be on August 16 at 7 p.m. on Zoom. If you would like more information about this meeting or would like to join the Anti-Racism team, please reach out to Eva Gebel at email@example.com
Our Conversations with Scripture group will take a break for the first few weeks of August. Our group will resume later in August upon Rev. Selena's return.
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 Wednesdays at 7 p.m. via Zoom. All are welcome to participate no matter your music knowledge or experience.
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 environmental impact and educating ourselves on earth stewardship. From brick and mortar decisions to educational classes on composting, and this year's effort to be attentive to our water use while providing water filtration systems to our partner community in Fondwa, Haiti, this team guides our church to honor God's creation as an act of love.
A Year of Resolutions:
A positive side effect of last year’s COVID pandemic isolation was cleaner air worldwide. We all marveled at the before and after photos showing a 30% reduction in air pollution in only four months, January to April, in major cities like Los Angeles, Shanghai, and New Delhi. Why?Because people were staying at home and not driving. Now that the economy is getting back to normal, climate activists are concerned that pollution and carbon emissions will return to pre-COVID levels or worse. A more optimistic outlook, however, is possible.Now that we are all Zoom savvy, perhaps our “new normal” will include a greater use of video conferencing, freeing us from our previous demands for daily travel.
