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!

Upcoming Events at KUMC

    Wednesdays in December at Noon in The Chapel

    This 30 minute mid-week Advent Worship service led by Pastor Katie includes time for reflection, readings, prayer, and music in the Chapel. By midweek it is easy to feel drained and stressed.

  • Brown Bag Sunday for LifeWise StL

    Sunday, December 3

    The First Sunday in December at KUMC is Brown Bag Sunday for the LifeWise Holiday Market. You are invited to purchase items from LifeWise's Wish List to bring to church on Sunday, December 3 in a brown bag to place at the altar. Why the brown bag? Because no gift is to small or too large (as long as it fits in a brown bag) to share the Christian love during the holidays!  The gifts will be added to the Market at LifeWise STL where their clients, and this year 38 LifeBridge families who participated in financial education can shop for affordable gifts.  and they are looking forward to this opportunity to fulfill their families’ holiday wishes. Please support the market by donating a new gift from the list of needed items below to help these families fulfill their holiday dreams.
