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.
APRIL 10 @ 4 PM: Join us as we will gather at Campus Lounge (701 S. University Blvd, Denver, 80209) with those from 6th Avenue UCC to discuss the events of Holy Week. What does crucifixion, and resurrection mean to our faith, to our daily lives, to our understandings of God? Bring your wisdom and your questions! (Click HERE for an ’Introduction to Theology’)
We will be reading and discussing Dr. Eric Smith’s book, 'Paul the Progressive?' which pushes against the criticisms of Paul assumed by progressive Christianity, and argues that Paul is indeed not the misogynist, homophobic, close-minded teacher that tradition has shaped him to be. Dr. Smith teaches locally and has offered to speak with us after we have concluded the book study. You can participate in person or via ZOOM on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. (Our group DIG will also be studying this book, Sundays before worship at 9 a.m. in person and via Zoom.)
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 Wednesdays 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.
