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.

Brown Bag & A Bible is meeting over Zoom, each Wednesday from 12noon to 1 PM.  If you’d like to join us in the Zoom meeting room, please let Pastor Darryl know, and he’ll add you.  As always, our study is a very open-minded and inclusive that honors traditional as well as outside-the-box interpretations!  Throughout the summer months, we will be looking at various stories in the Gospel accounts that speak to the very human emotions Jesus felt and expressed.  If you’d like to join the Bible Study, please contact Pastor Darryl or view the weekly Chimes to get the Zoom logi information.


Theology on Tap returns on Monday, July 20, 2020 at 6:30 PM.  We’ll be discussing the themes of the amazing documentary from PBS on the life and ministry of Rev. Howard Thurman (view the documentary here).  We’ll meet over Zoom from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM.   Join your KCC friends for meaningful, thought provoking discussion over good food and the beverage of your choice.  The Zoom link will be published in the coming weeks.


Summer Book Discussion: “Reconstructing the Gospel: Finding Freedom from Slaveholder Religion by Rev. Jonathon Wilson-Hartgrove.”  Join Pastor Darryl and your KCC friends for this very important themes and ideas about dismantling the racism found in 21st Century Christianity in America.  How do we repent for the orginal sin of racism?  How do we become allies for BLM?  How does our faith guide us in building beloved community?  We will meet from 6:30 to 8:00 PM on Wednesday July 22 & 29, August 5,12, 19.  Please begin reading the book before we start to meet.  If you have any questions about the book discussion, please contact Pastor Darryl.

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.
