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. Those who worship in-person must be masked (this applies to all persons including those vaccinated). Masks must cover both your nose and mouth at all times. Family groups are seated together in designated places and at least six feet of social distance is maintained between each family group. Any post-worship fellowship takes place outside the building in the parking lot.
