Grow | Kids

We know kids grow in faith as they model what they see in their most important relationships. At Kirkwood UMC, we want to partner with parents to help your child grow in their love of God and others.

Growing Together in Faith

Fun faith based learning activities for you and your children at KUMC. 


    Sundays at 9 am & 10:30 am

    Kid's Worship, worship designed with children in mind, is available for children preschool-aged (and potty trained) through 5th-grade on Sunday mornings during both worship services.  Parents can drop off children at KUMC's gym at 8:50 am for Contemporary Worship and at 10:20 am for Traditional Worship. Lisa will guide your child through songs, activities, prayers and a weekly kindness challenge during their own special time together there and you can pick them up after worship.
