Have you heard the expression “cancel culture”? While the expression is new, the idea is not. Cancel culture refers to the practice of withdrawing support (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive.” In this time of division, in this time of dedicated commitments to be anti-racist, in a church that seeks inclusion – what does cancel culture mean to us? Join us on October 11 from 4-6 p.m. We will gather on zoom (same login as worship) at 4 p.m. All are welcome!
We will continue our discussion of Debby Irving’s Waking Up White on Sunday,
October 18 at 1:30 p.m. We will be discussing Chapters 18-20.
Every Tuesday at 2 p.m. we gather on Zoom to dialogue with each other and with our sacred text. This month we will conclude our study of the book of James and then begin a study on the prophet Micah. All are welcome to login to Zoom as you would for worship and join us.
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.

What the Light Shines Through: The Kirk women were planning to go to La Foret Oct. 23-24 for our annual Women’s Retreat. Due to COVID-19 that is not possible this year, but that will not stop us from taking some time to build relationships with God and each other, reflecting on our journeys, laughing, walking and worshipping. In the Spirit of our retreat we will gather for “Happy Hour” on Friday, October 23 at 8 p.m. for a time to check in with each other over a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Then we invite you to create space in your busy schedule for yourself and your faith by scheduling yourself for the Women’s Retreat Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon. Over these three hours we will gather online on zoom, take breaks as we do on retreat for walks and creative reflection, and then gather back together to process and share what the Spirit is saying to us.
We ask that you pre-register HERE. There is a small registration fee of $15 as we hope to provide each participant (near or far) with a package to help you fully engage the retreat from home. Please register by October 12.
