Here’s a synopsis of each of our Adult Faith Formation this autumn.

Noon Bible Study will begin meeting over Zoom on Wednesday, September 8

Noontime Bible Study will begin meeting on Wednesday, September 8 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM over Zoom. The Zoom link will be published in the Chimes in the weeks to come. Led by Pastor Darryl and attended by your KCC friends from near and far away, our noon Bible Studies are a provocative yet inspiring time of learning and discovery. This Fall, we will be looking at passages from the Hebrew Bible/Christian Old Testament and how they are understood from the original Jewish perspective and how they were reinterpreted in a Christian light.


Theology on Tap returns Monday, September 20 at 6:30 PM

Theology on Tap returns for the 8th year! This very engaging discussion group is a wonderful time in community with old and new friends. We have a common resource that we watch or read or listen to each month, and then we come together to discuss the themes and ideas of that resource. We laugh, we ponder, we grow, and we build each other up. The Zoom link and common resource will be published in the Chimes in the weeks to come.


Crisis Contemplation: A Six Week Course in Meditation & Social Justice begins Wednesday, October 6 at 7:00 PM over Zoom

Using a resource by the Rev. Dr. Barbara Holmes, we will be hosting a 6-Week Seminar in managing communal trauma and the spiritual Benefit of the Spiritual practice of contemplation.

You are encouraged to purchase the book ahead of time and begin reading and sampling the contemplation exercises.

Pastor Darryl will then lead six 60-minute discussion and contemplation sessions each Wednesday beginning on October 6.

You can order the book online at your favorite book retailer. If you need assistance ordering the book, please speak with 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.
