Adult Learning

We invite you to discover and explore — in a community of adults who are eager to learn and hear your insights. Express your interest… or suggest a new series!

Faith Programs for Adults

During the program year (Sept-June), we offer two ongoing programs for adults in addition to our special season learning opportunities.

“The Second Half of Acts” Lunchtime Bible Study Meets Every Wednesday, through June 9 from Noon to 1 PM over Zoom. If you’d like to join us in the Zoom meeting room, please let Pastor Darryl know, and he’ll add you to our weekly email, or you can find the Zoom login information in each week’s Prayer & Announcements.

Grow - Adult Learning

We will pick up in Chapter 20 of the Book of Acts on May 5 after doing a few weeks of a recap of the first half of the book.  This is a great time to jump into a Bible Study!

As always, our study is a very open-minded and inclusive that honors traditional as well as outside-the-box interpretations!   If you’d like to join the Bible Study, or would like more information, please contact Pastor Darryl at

Theology on Tap returns Monday, May 17, 2021 at 6:30 PM.   This will be our last Theology on Tap until the Fall.  There is no common resource this month.

Instead, you are invited to bring a poem to share with the group (two if they are shorter).  The poem you share can be about anything that moves and inspires you, it can be one you wrote yourself or one written by another poet past or present.

The Zoom links to join Theology on Tap are always published in the Weekly Prayers and Announcements the Friday before Theology on Tap meets.  Please join us for this fun, evocative, inspiring, and faithful conversation on this all too real and important topic.


Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service~ 

Refresh, Renew, Reinvigorate!

On the first Sunday evening of each month at 7 PM over Zoom, you are invited to a time of tranquility, a time of listening to the still small Voice, a time of growing closer in relationship to the Holy, a time of being still. Each evening will include a spiritual reading or two followed by a time of silence for contemplation.

The next Spirit’s Haven Contemplation will be on January 3rd, at 7:00 PM. Led by Paula Elizabeth, KCC’s former interim pastor; we are excited that she and her husband Rev. Ross Putnam recently became members of KCC! Paula is an ordained minister, a spiritual director, a coach for clergy, congregations and leaders, and a counselor. She has been leading contemplative services for many years as well as offering other contemplative practices.

The Zoom links to join Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service will be published in the Weekly Prayers and Announcements the Friday before Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service meets.


Women’s Spirituality Group Meets Via Zoom on the first Tuesday of the month at 10 AM


In May, we will read Diana Butler Bass’s Freeing Jesus

Here’s a link to an interview with her about the book:

Please join us. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the book. Our conversations range broadly and spontaneously. For Zoom Link and any questions, call Sharon Young 619-675-9592.

Our church maintains both an adult and children’s library from which you can withdraw books on Sundays or during the week when the church office is open. We offer a large selection of large print books as well as many new best sellers. Check out our recent library additions.

Puzzle Exchange at KCC

Do you like to do jigsaw puzzles? Do you ponder what to do with a puzzle when you finish? We have started a puzzle exchange in the KCC Adult Library where you bring one in and trade it for another that you have not done.  We have 500 -750 piece for that same range and 1000-1500 piece for that same range. If a piece is missing, just note it on the box.
