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 Campus Lounge (701 S. University Blvd, Denver, 80209) 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.
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.
