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.

Sandwich Making: On Sunday, September 16, 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.

See you there!

We are working with  ECHO who identifies families in need. There are envelopes in the pews and the 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 goes toward Christmas Baskets for ECHO families.
