The work and mission of the Kirk extends far beyond Sunday
mornings. We are called to bring meaning into the lives of individuals and our
community. This meaning comes through ritual, honest dialogue, education and
relationships. We invite all in the community to participate in these events –
we welcome those of all faiths and no faith, those questioning or just
curious…(for more on who we welcome see our Open and Affirming statement)
It is time to dig deeper into your mind, your faith, your spirit! During the 9 am hour the Kirk offers a time of learning, questioning, engagement and community every Sunday morning at 9 a.m.
Brian McLaren has written a book broken up into short chapters to read over the course of a year. This book examines the major themes of scripture from Creation to Sin to Forgiveness and Hope. All adults are invited to join us each week or just one week to try it out. If you are interested in participating and would like us to order you the book, let Selena know or you can order your own digital or print copy through Amazon.
Our worship blends tradition with a more casual and engaged style. In worship we welcome, sing, listen to the scripture, to the choir, and a reflection offered by our Pastor. Our children engage the scripture on their terms, we share our struggles and joys, we pray (with words, with silence, and sometimes with written engagement at prayer stations) we receive offering and the first Sunday of the month we gather at the table to share in Communion.
Nursery is available for the littlest ones 0-2 for the entire service. Children ages 3 through middle school are invited to participate in Godly Play in the basement following the Children’s Moment. Children are also welcome to stay for the entire worship service!
11 a.m. Gathering
Immediately following worship we gather to debrief about worship and life, watch kids play, enjoy a light snack and build relationships with one another in the Court Yard at the front of the church.
THEOLOGY ON TAP!
Once a month we gather in a
casual environment to discuss God and the world (and God in the world). Topics
have included: heaven and hell, liberation theology, world religions, evil, how
not to speak of God, process theology, body vs soul and more!
Our next gathering will be
on Sunday, December 11 from 4-6 p.m. at 730 South Bar and Grill, located at 730
S. University Blvd. Childcare is available at the Kirk.
This conversation and all Theology on Taps are
open to all – including those outside of the Kirk. If you have friends who have
been asking these questions or friends from other faiths invite them to join
us. With every voice our conversation grows richer.
We are beginning a new book this month. Our next meeting will be Sunday, December 11 at 6:30 pm in the choir room. All are welcome to join us in our discussion.
