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!

  • "Freeing Jesus" Lenten Book Study

    During Lent this year our sermon series is based on the book by Diana Butler Bass entitled, "Freeing Jesus" which invites us to consider a life where Jesus grows with us and helps us through life’s challenges in six distinct capacities: as Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way, and Presence. Rediscover Jesus and allow him to change your life – and our world – once again in a book study on your own,  with your own small group, or join Pastor Katie for a group study on Monday mornings at 10:30 in the lounge.
