Summer Pop-Ups

Hang out with Kirkwood UMC this summer! Summer Pop-ups are a brand new way for YOU to help build connection and community. They can be anything! From cycling to service projects…playdates to pickleball…book clubs to fire pits... from board games to hiking. As long as they're a way to connect with others, you can create and host a Pop-Up! They can be one-time or recurring anytime during June, July, and the first half of August.


If you have any questions, please reach out to Pastor Katie or Pastor Steven.

KUMC Summer Pop-Ups

Here's the list of Summer Pop-ups you're invited to join:  

  • Juneteenth Celebration at the Griot Museum - Wednesday, June 19, 1-7 pm

    The Racial Justice Ministry is sponsoring a visit to the Griot Museum of Black History as they host their Juneteenth Free-Dome Celebration. We will carpool to the museum from KUMC leaving at approximately 1 p.m. to visit the Juneteenth Street Party in front of the museum. We will then tour the museum. There is a $10 admission to the museum, and you may want to bring extra money to purchase food and other items. The Griot is the first cultural institution in St. Louis that is solely dedicated to revealing the broad scope of Black History and culture. Its mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and share the stories, culture, and history of Black people - particularly highlighting their regional connection to American history.


    Griot Museum of Black History is located at 2505 St Louis Ave, St. Louis, MO 63106
