  • Family Olympics/Splash Family FUn Night

    Splish Splash Family Fun night in July was so much fun that we decided to combine water fun with some family olympic-style relays and games.  So bring a friend, your beach towel, bathing suit or clothes that can get wet and wear some water shoes or sandals and join us for some family fun in the KUMC parking lot on August 5th from 6:30-7:30!  We hope to see you for some splashing good fun!

  • Play cafe

    Play Cafe is currently on hiatus for the summer, but watch for announcements for it to begin again when school starts in the fall!

    Parents, bring the kids and let them enjoy open gym time in our indoor gym play area while you relax and have a cup of coffee with other parents after school ends. Let the little ones wiggle out that afternoon energy while you catch up with friends!

    • Wednesdays 3:00 - 5:00 PM, during the school year
    • Kirkwood UMC Gym
