A Special Note from Lead Pastor Katie Trinter Concerning Current Operations: 

Dear Kirkwood UMC Community,

We will not be able to gather in person for worship for a while due to the regulations being put into place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 /Corona Virus. It is so very important to stay home and stay safe as these measures not only protect you but the health of others also right now.

Instead I invite you to join us online to stay in touch and connected to KUMC. All are welcome! If you are looking for connection to others in Christian love, prayer and online fellowship and reassurance – we welcome you to connect with Kirkwood United Methodist Church online now.  We are linking together online in prayer, making our new weekly sermons available Saturday evenings at 5 pm, and even sending out links for inspirational hymns and music to help keep you uplifted during this challenging time. You’ll even see that we are trying to assist with missional needs in our community and we invite you to donate or help if you are able.

Here are the links to take you to the online sources where you can connect with Kirkwood United Methodist Church right now:

In the meantime, while large corporate gatherings are cancelled, please join us as we gather together virtually online outside of the walls of Kirkwood UMC. We are here for you for prayer, conversation, presence, and support.

Your Pastor,

Pastor Katie Trinter

Weekend in Worship
 
March/April 2020
 
New Sermon Series: 
 

During these 40 days of Lent that lead up to Easter, you are invited to experience the wilderness.  It is a journey beyond the ordinary, and often beyond our comfort zones.  It is both sacred and stretching.  In our ordinary lives, we rarely enter the wilderness willingly, but in this season we wander into the wilderness on purpose, and as we do, we hope to encounter God in a new way that allows us to remember who we are and whose we are. 

So, I hope you will join us on a sacred and wild journey through KUMC’s new Thursday Lent Connect community meal and class offerings, printed devotionals, and worship experiences.  Along the way, may we all discover that there is no place too harsh, too far, or too unexpected for God’s limitless love.  Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.”  I hope you will come enjoy the feast of Christ’s presence at KUMC.

At KUMC you are invited to connect with God and other people. The journey begins when we are connected relationally on the path of discipleship. Our search for meaning and God’s purpose for our lives is so much richer when we do it in connection with our fellow travelers of the planet.

Grow

Growing in faith and maturing spiritually doesn’t happen by osmosis. We are called to intentionally seek God’s word so we can live out God’s plan for our life. The good news is God gave us an awesome gift called The Bible where we can come to know God as Father Son and Spirit.
Let’s figure out together what it all means for our lives today!

The Church has left the building.

We at Kirkwood United Methodist Church believe that church isn’t over
when you leave church on Sunday.  We act with passion as we CONNECT
with others both inside and outside of the church and GROW in faith as we SERVE
God and others in mission and ministry.
 
Please join us as we leave the building together.  Let’s do great things.

Give

 
When we decide to follow Jesus, we’re committing to make Him not only our Savior, but also our Lord of everything – our time, our talents, and our treasure.   It’s not about giving to an organization, but giving from generous hearts.  We joyfully invite you into a life-changing journey of
generous living at Kirkwood UMC.
