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.

  Yours in Christ,

Join Us Sunday

Worship 11:00 am 

Nursery Care Provided 

Upcoming at Kirkwood: 

Session’s Town Hall Meeting: Following our 11:00 AM worship service this Sunday, October 22, all Kirkwood members and friends are invited to participate in a Town Hall Meeting when the Session will discuss progress toward Kirkwood’s top priorities to strengthen the church including: 1) attracting families with children and youth to our church, 2) reaching new people and incorporating them into the life of the church, and 3) increasing our congregation’s energy and satisfaction by forming more meaningful relationships with one another—and what more needs to be done. Nursery care for infants through age 3 will be provided.

Labyrinth Walk: An interactive prayer practice with time to walk the labyrinth in our fellowship hall using guided prayer and scripture reading will be offered on Sunday, October 22 from 4:30 - 6:30 pm. This event will be held in conjunction with our church neighbors at Price of Peace Lutheran and will be a drop-in, individual, written, guided practice that can be done at your own pace. If you’re interested in this opportunity, just stop by on October 22!

Men’s Luncheon: The Kirkwood men’s monthly luncheon group is spreading its wings and trying a new eatery in October.   The group will meet at noon on Tuesday, October 24 at the Trattoria Villagio Italian Restaurant in Clifton.  Excellent food in an attractive setting both inside and outdoors at reasonable prices.  What could be better.  Call John Webster if you plan to attend or sign up in the commons area.

Dinner Group (Note Location Change): Many have enjoyed the first two Dinner Group events. The June picnic at the Snyder's and August's Summer Soiree at the Larson's were well attended and lots of fun.  Changing things up just a bit, October's Outing will be held at a restaurant.  Everyone is welcome!  Please consider joining in on the fun and fellowship. Kirkwood's Dinner Group October Outing will be held on Saturday, October 28 at 6:00 pm at Maggiano's Little Italy (Springfield Town Center). Reservations are required, so please RSVP to Maggie Snyder by October 15.

Trunk or Treat: Looking for a safe and fun Trick or Treat alternative for your family and a way to participate in an outreach to the community? Then join us on Sunday, October 29 in the Kirkwood parking lot for Trunk-or-Treating! Trunk-or-Treat is a family-friendly night of costumes, candy, and decorated cars. Come fill your bag with candy from 5:00-6:00 pm!  Sign up in the commons area to bring candy, decorate your car, hand out treats, and man the games. 

Northern VA Chorale Concert: On Saturday, November 4 at 8:00 pm, the Northern VA Chorale will present The Commemoration of All Saints Day and the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.  The concert will be held at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 5800 Backlick Road, Springfield.
