Adult Kirk Programs
Kirk Friends & Families
Church Bible Study
On Sunday mornings in the Fellowship Hall, Pastor Nancy offers an ongoing study of Scripture, current issues and events, and Christian spiritual practice, appropriate for adults and youth both new and familiar with church life. Other small groups also congregate for Bible study and fellowship in our open Gathering Place. Welcomers are present to direct visitors.
Kirk Parents and Caretakers
Also on Sunday mornings at 9-10am, parents, guardians, and caretakers of children come together for coffee and conversation in the Gathering Place. There are casual guided discussions based on the Kirk Kids lesson to equip adults with tools for spiritual formation at home.
Young Adult Conventicles
An emerging young adult group gathers infrequently for socializing and fun, prayer and rest, discussion and study. Contact Associate Pastor Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive updates and meet other young adults in the congregation.
What's a conventicle? The word "conventicle" just means "gathering" or "assembly." In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says that "where two or three are gathered" for prayer and care and fellowship, "I am there among them." Centuries later, when Scottish Presbyterian churches faced persecution from the English monarchy, the Presbyterians still met, often under the cover of night, in barns, houses, ravines, and open fields to practice their faith. New life comes when we gather on the Spirit's terms, not just because of tradition or habit, and when we tell our old stories in new ways, in new places, to new people.
