Welcome to Kirkwood, the "church in the woods.” Nestled among towering oaks and colorful dogwoods and camellias, we offer the surrounding Springfield, Virginia area and greater community a place of worship and song, of prayer and learning. We offer the Lord of Life whose compassion and comfort and whose grace and guidance may be found in a gathering of fellow Christians, drawn together in faith, hope and love. We are young and old, married and single, and together we are sisters and brothers of Jesus Christ.

Join us for hybrid worship this Sunday at 11 am. Hybrid Worship includes those who are worshipping in-person in our sanctuary and those who are worshiping from home via live-streaming of the service. You are strongly encouraged to mask for the safety of others, however, masks are not required. If you are sick, symptomatic, or have been exposed to covid, please refrain from worshiping in person.

Children's Sunday School: Godly Play Sunday School for ages 3 through 12 is held on Sunday mornings before worship from 10:00 - 10:45 am in the classroom next to the conference room (formerly a nursery). We welcome all of Kirkwood's children to join us as we make meaning through story, wonder and play.

Weekly Wednesday Fellowship: Join us every Wednesday from 6:30-7:30 pm for an online fellowship opportunity using the Zoom meeting platform.

Save the date! Please join us on Sunday, February 26 at 4 pm for a worship service celebrating the ordination of Patricia "Pat" Futato as a Teaching Elder in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The Rev. John Molina-Moore, General Presbyter for National Capital Presbytery, will be the preacher. There will be a light reception following the service. Once ordained, Pat will be Kirkwood's Parish Associate. This will be a wonderful opportunity to publicly validate Pat's calling and ministry and to thank her for all the years of service she has already shared with Kirkwood and to celebrate her future ministry at Kirkwood.
