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 Sunday

Nursery Care Provided

Upcoming at Kirkwood: 

Ash Wednesday: Join us as we begin the season of Lent with an Ash Wednesday service on February 26 at 7:30 pm in the Sanctuary.

Parents’ Night Out: The Christian Education Committee is excited to announce Parents’ Night Out. Mark your calendars for Friday, February 28, from 5:00 - 8:00 pm.  We are happy to offer a night of fun for your kids in Fellowship Hall—including dinner, a movie, and games—while you enjoy a night out.  If you have any questions, please contact Carin Hickey. Advance sign-up is required — email Carin or register on the sign up sheet in the Commons Area.

Pastor Nominating Committee Update: At the annual congregational meeting on February 9, the PNC gave a presentation on the options for the compensation package for the call of a new minister.  Based on the church’s finances the discussion centered on whether to call a part-time or full-time pastor.  PNC and Session will be holding a soup/sandwich potluck luncheon on Sunday, March 1 following the worship service to provide additional information on the compensation issue and to get some feedback and help from the congregation on how to move forward. A sign-up sheet for the luncheon is posted on the easel in the commons area.

Provide a Home-Cooked Dinner for the Homeless: Kirkwood’s Mission Committee invites you to help with a dinner for the homeless at Sydenstricker United Methodist Church on Wednesday, March 18 at 5:30 pm. Our neighbors at Sydenstricker UMC will be hosting 30-35 guests for dinner and overnight shelter each night for a week in March, as part of the Ventures in Community Hypothermia Outreach Program. We will be joining in this effort by preparing and serving the Wednesday night dinner and visiting with the guests. There will be a sign-up sheet in the Commons Area to provide needed food items or to be a server.

Warm Feet, Happy Hearts Sock Drive: New socks and warm feet can make a world of difference to the homeless and working poor and are one of the most needed items at ECHO. Spread warmth and make hearts happy by donating socks all through the month of March. Bring any size, color, and style sock to church and together we can help our neighbors in need.

One Great Hour of Sharing: Since 1949 Presbyterians have joined millions of other Christians through "One Great Hour of  Sharing" to share God's love with other neighbors-in-need around the world.  Your generous gifts to this special offering help provide relief for those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry and assist in helping to empower the poor and oppressed. Through One Great Hour of Sharing, we are building God's household filled with love where everyone is welcome. Please give generously, for when we all do a little, it adds to a lot.  This year Kirkwood will collect the offering the week before Palm Sunday (March 29) and Palm Sunday (April 5). Please look for donation envelopes in the church pew racks beginning on March 22.

You're Invited: Travel to Israel and Palestine on a pilgrimage and study tour, October 9-19, 2020. Join others from National Capital Presbytery for this trip, led by Rev. Susan Wilder and  Rev. Dr. Ben Trawick, pastor at Grace Presbyterian Church, Springfield. Travelers will walk in the land of the Bible beside those who live in the land today. Visiting places of Jesus’ life and ministry and having conversations with Israelis and Palestinians, the group will consider what it means to be faithful witnesses to Christ in this time. Pick up a brochure in the Commons Area to learn more.

ECHO Needs: Many families in our neighborhoods need your help. Canned food including canned meats, cooking oil, laundry detergent and hygiene items including deodorant are needed. The Housewares Department is hoping to get donations of toasters, mixers and blenders. ECHO’s Clothing Department requests men’s clothing in small and medium sizes, especially coats. New backpacks and 1-1/2” or 2” loose-leaf binders are needed in ECHO’s ongoing assistance to families with school-age children. (Please make sure donated items are in useable condition.) Donations may be placed in the Kirkwood “ECHO” box in the Narthex for weekly delivery to ECHO. Donations may also be made at ECHO’s headquarters, 7205 Old Keene Mill Road, Springfield, VA, Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm, and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings between 7:00 and 9:00 pm.
