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!

Christmas at KUMC

Scroll down below to find the weekly worship opportunities, invitation to missions to bring cheer to others, and more that we have prepared for you to enjoy with your family this year.  

Celebrate Advent in Worship at  KUMC

Here are the ways you can Worship from home online on Sundays and Weekdays with KUMC during Advent.

  • Sunday Worship

    Sundays, 10 am @kirkwoodmethodist

    This Advent season at Kirkwood Methodist Church is for the dreamers in all of us—those who dream of a deeper connection with God and those who dream of a better world. It’s for those who dream of comfort and for those who have given up on their dreams. It’s for those whose dreams have been crushed and for those who show us that dreams take time. Join us this Advent as we dream alongside prophets and angels, Mary and the Magi. Join us as we seek and sow God's dreams for our world in our Advent sermon series, Those Who Dream.  Daily Advent Devotional Books are available at the church office for pick-up if you would also like to participate in daily prayer and activities from home.
