Kids matter at Kirkwood UMC. Our goal at KUMC is to create a place for children and families to pray, worshipread and learn Scripture, and serve all while having fun and growing spiritually.

Every week at KUMC, children do this in Sunday morning small groups and child care, Sunday morning worship, Wednesday afternoon Play Cafe and  Wednesday afternoon children’s choirs.

Be sure to check out KUMC’s weekly schedule and Special Events Calendar below for times and more information.
