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!

  • What If Walks

    Wednesdays at Noon - Starting May 10th

    Pastor Katie and Pastor Steven will be leading walks in our community on Wednesdays at noon. Put on your walking shoes, dress for the weather and meet at the KUMC plaza (in front of the red doors) for a walk around our community. You'll be invited to look at our neighborhood through new eyes, and really pay attention to who lives and works here. Together, we will pray for our community and ask what if we could connect and serve here? Where is God showing up? What if Christ's Kingdom flourished even more fully here? What could we do to help? We will talk and pray, and remember that we are a church for our community.
