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.

Upcoming at Kirkwood: 

Thank you to Rev. Jennifer Dunfee for leading us in worship this Sunday, October 21. Rev. Dr. Jean Coyle will lead us in worship next Sunday, October 28.

Concert from Kirkwood: This Saturday, October 20 at 3:00 pm, Concerts from Kirkwood will open the 2018-2019 season with a concert featuring the A&R Duo in a four-hands piano concert. Steinway Pianists Arianna Korting and Robin Giesbrecht met at the Julliard School as prodigious individual artists, but soon found themselves performing together to rousing ovations, in concert halls in Europe to East Asia and throughout the United States. They will bring their virtuosity to Kirkwood performing in a four hands format on Kirkwood’s excellent Steinway piano in a concert you will not want to miss.

Adult Sunday School Update: Starting this Sunday, October 21 at 9:45 am in the Conference Room, open your Bibles to Philippians -- Paul's letter filled with joy, thanksgiving, and hope, sent to a small group of believers residing in the Macedonian city of Philippi, crafted when Paul himself was locked in chains under Roman custody. Together, the class will explore this brief book (only 3-4 pages), rich with Paul's advice to this beloved community about how to have confidence, faith, perseverance and strength--particularly in troubled circumstances.

S.O.M.E. Sandwich Making: This Sunday, October 21, immediately after the worship service, volunteers will gather in the Fellowship Hall to prepare sandwiches for So Others Might Eat.  Contributions of bologna or sliced cheese are welcome and should be placed in the kitchen refrigerator.  Join us for fellowship and to help feed the homeless.

Kids Helping Kids: This Sunday, October 21 is Kids Helping Kids!  All kids of Kirkwood, get ready to help assemble weekend food packs for hungry students at Newington Forest Elementary after service in the Fellowship Hall.  Donations of boxed mac & cheese, ramen noodles, instant oatmeal, canned chicken or tuna, cheese and crackers, and granola bars are always welcome.  Bring your items with you to the Fellowship Hall. See you there!

Trunk-or-Treat: Looking for a safe and fun Trick-or-Treat alternative for your family? Then join us on Sunday, October 28 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—invite friends and neighbors to join the fun! Sign up in the commons area to bring candy, decorate your car, hand out treats, and staff the games. 

Thanksgiving Baskets: The Mission Committee is accepting cash donations to prepare Thanksgiving Baskets for some families that can use the help. We are working with  ECHO who identifies families in need. There are envelopes in the pews and donation boxes on the tables in the narthex and common area.  Each basket costs approximately $75.  Any donations we receive prior to Thanksgiving over our Thanksgiving commitment go towards Christmas Baskets for ECHO families. 

ECHO’s Pantry currently needs spaghetti sauce, sugar, flour, vegetable oil and instant potatoes as well as detergent, razors, toilet paper, deodorant and shaving cream. Autumn brings Back to School time and a need for school supplies as well as clothing for growing children. ECHO especially needs sneakers for older kids,  sizes 3 - 6, and jeans for girls, sizes 6 - 16. Used clothing and shoes that are in good condition are gratefully accepted, but we need new socks and underwear to distribute to those in need of clothing. Donations may be brought to church and placed in the ECHO box in the narthex. Donations are also welcomed at the ECHO Donation Door, 7205 Old Keene Mill Road, on weekdays from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm, and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings between 7:00 and 9:00 pm.
