Lenten Events & Easter Worship at KUMC

All are welcome to participate in worship or any event at KUMC!  

During the season of Lent, you are invited to attend church on Sundays at 9 am for Contemporary Worship or 10:30 am for Traditional Worship.  Kids Worship and Childcare is available on Sunday mornings during each worship time. 

Join our Lenten devotional study, "Wandering Heart". Pick up a copy of the devotion book and read along on your own daily from home or social KUMC's daily Facebook and Instagram posts. You can also choose to meet with Pastor Katie on Monday mornings at 10:30 am in the lounge beginning on February 26th for a series of conversations based on the study, or or with a group of your own. This book will also be the basis of our Lenten Sermon series. 

All other worship and event times are listed below for you to come and celebrate Lent and Easter at KUMC!

Lenten Events and Worship

ALL are invited to participate in any of the following worship services or events at Kirkwood United Methodist Church!

  • WAndering Heart

    Lenten Devotional Book

    During Lent we are using the Devotional Book, "Wandering Heart", prepared by The Sanctified Art Creative Team. We will focus on the life and faith of one of Jesus' most famous disciples. In Peter, we see a person who is both steadfast and unsteady, a dear friend and a betrayer, a follower and a wanderer. We often can see ourselves in Peter. By following his journey, we watch the story of Jesus unfold through the eyes of a very normal human trying to figure it all out —just like us. Pick up a printed copy of the Devotion Book at church so you can engage in the weekly art and reflections at your own pace. 

  • Lenten Devotion Study with Pastor Katie

    Mondays, 10:30am in the Lounge, Beginning 2/26/24

    You are invited to join the Lent Devotional Study with Pastor Katie on Monday Mornings at 10:30 am in the lounge at KUMC, for a more in depth look at the materials included in the Wandering Hearts Devotional Book.

The Eggstravaganza is happening Sunday, March 24th from 3 - 5pm, rain or shine.

There will be food trucks on site selling treats like hotdogs, coffee, funnel cakes, snow cones, and ice cream. 

Our Grand Finale is a 5pm Egg Hunt followed by a color run moment for all ages to enjoy - even adults. (Be sure to dress to be splashed with color!) Save the Date! Bring the whole family to the Eggstravaganza on the 24th for an afternoon of laughter, fun, and community spirit. All are welcome and admission is free.
