All Are Welcome

At Kirkwood UMC, we say “all are welcome, all are forgiven, and all are invited to believe” …and we mean it. KUMC welcomes and affirms you, regardless of your race, color, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, age, physical and mental ability, economic status, or political ideology. We believe no matter where you have been or what you have done, if you are a seeker or cynic, flawed or faithful, God loves you and seeks to be in a relationship with you. With open hearts, open minds, and open doors, we welcome you and invite you to participate fully in the life of this faith community!
