Christ's Love in Action

Come and see how Christ's Love is truly in action at Kirkwood United Methodist Church, through some of the following ministries below. 

  • Fed To Feed Others

    At KUMC, we are "Fed to Feed Others!" All are invited to Kirkwood United Methodist Church and all are invited to the Communion Table on the first Sunday of the month. And as you are fed by Christ, you are also invited to share that love with others through the donation of non-perishable food items.  KUMC's food collection efforts help stock the LifeBridge Market where clients buy food items at reduced rates as well as other local food pantries.

    To donate, bring items to the Connections Center on Sunday mornings when you come to church or during office hours M - Th, 9am - 3pm.

Our goal is to inspire you to delve into this rich history in a way that feels authentic and impactful. Whether you're flying solo, gathering with loved ones, or forming a small group with fellow congregants, we hope these resources will empower you to explore and expand your knowledge in meaningful ways.
