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.
Do you pray? What is the purpose of prayer? Does prayer make an
impact on you? On the world? Why do we pray? How do we pray? Join us Sunday, Nov. 17 from 4-6 p.m. at Brightmarten (730 South University) for a casual conversation on prayer. Childcare is available at the Kirk. Bring a friend!
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.
We have many small groups at the Kirk. One of these groups is made up of those in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. We gather together regularly for discussion and community. We will gather on Saturday, November 23th for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner in the Lower Level at the Kirk. Everyone is invited to bring a side or dessert to share! Mark your calendars for a great evening of food and friends! Kids are welcome!
It is time for our annual Thanksgiving/Friendsgiving Dinner! We will gather on Saturday, November 23rd at 5 p.m. in the lower level of the Kirk for our meal together at one large table! We are looking for a volunteer to add a few decorations so the evening feels festive. A sign-up genius is going out this week to sign up to bring a side to share! Mark your calendars for a great evening of food and friends! Kids are welcome!
Our book group is reading The Great Spiritual Migration by Brian McLaren. We will gather in the Community Room at noon on Sunday, November 17 to discuss Part II. All are welcome to join in on the conversation whether you have read or not! McLaren is suggesting church’s become schools of love – teaching a curriculum of love. How would you respond to that? Is that how/who we already are?
Every Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. we gather in the music room at the Kirk to enter into a conversation about and with scripture. We are studying the book of Genesis, moving through the well known stories of Adam, Eve, Jacob, Esau, Abraham and Sarah. We know these biblical characters but what do they say to us today? All are welcome to jump in on the conversation!
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.
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.
