New Sermon Series: 

Most of us want more. We want to find purpose. We want deep, authentic relationships.  We don’t just want to go through the motions. We want a life of meaning and adventure. In short, we want to be moved. This January we are exploring how the way of Jesus can transform everything. Come discover a way of life that can truly move us. 

Saturday, January 25
5:00 pm: Common Worship, The Commons
Sunday, January 26
9 am: Contemporary Worship, Sanctuary
10:30 am: Traditional Worship, Sanctuary
Sermon: MOVED to Share It!
 Scripture : Matthew 3:13-17, Ephesians 2:8-10

Using the example of Christ, we will explore how our own belovedness, fuels us to share hope and love with others. We each have unique story of God unfolding in our lives that we get to share with others and unleash in the world. 




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.


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.
kumc mission


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.
