get involved

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.

  • Theology on tap

    Join us on December 15 at Brightmarten (730 South University) as we discuss the theology of Advent. This holy season is marked by a movement from darkness to light as we light the advent candles each week. How do we reconcile the gathering darkness with what our world calls ‘the most wonderful time of the year”? Join us from 4-6 p.m. Childcare is available in the lower level of the Kirk.

  • faithful adulting

    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!

  • kirk book group

    Our book group is reading The Great Spiritual Migration by Brian McLaren. We will gather in the Community Room at noon on Sunday, December 1 to discuss Part III. 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?

  • conversations with scripture

    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!

  • choir

    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.

  • green justice team

    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.
