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.
March 14 at 4 p.m.
Last month we discussed the kin-dom of God as we pray, “on earth as it is in heaven” which left us asking, “what about heaven?” Therefore, this month we will be looking at heaven in Christian thought, asking questions, looking at scripture and exploring what we do and don’t know (and the implications of hell) through a theology of heaven. We will gather on Zoom at 4 p.m. on March 14.
The Kirk Book Group will be reading Compassion In Practice: The Way of Jesus by Frank Rogers Jr. for our next book. This book connects with our Kirk commitments to Sacred Conversations. This will be a 6-week study that will take place this spring. As a part of our book study we will be engaging and practicing our compassion through sacred conversation along the way. Our meetings will be Sundays March 7 & 21, April 11 & 25, May 2 & 16 at 1:30 p.m. on Zoom.
Fiction is a great way to put on someone else’s shoes and walk around in them for a little while. In trainings on inclusion and anti-racism, it is recommended that we read not only non-fiction but fiction as well written by people of color. Join our fiction book group – we read a novel every 2 months and discuss it. This month we invite you to read Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. We will meet at 1:30 p.m., March 28 on zoom to discuss the book in its entirety.
The Gospel of John stands out from the other gospels, in its focus on Jesus’ identity and poetic style. Each Tuesday at 2 p.m. we gather on Zoom to engage the scripture and one another. All are welcome.
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.
