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

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 Ecumenical Community Helping Others (ECHO) who identifies families in need. There are envelopes in the pews and the donation boxes on the tables in the narthex and commons area. We are also inviting you to help the Mission Committee and Deacons in the delivery of the baskets, so please contact Doug Amon if you would like to deliver a basket to a family. 

The Burke Crop Walk will occur on Sunday, November 17 after church. The total walk is 2.8 miles which starts and ends at Fairfax Presbyterian with a break in between at One God Ministry. The Crop Hunger Walks help children and families worldwide- including here in the USA - to have food for today, while building for a better tomorrow. The Crop Walk is celebrating its 50th anniversary and 25% of the funds raised will go to ECHO.  If you would like to participate as a walker and represent Kirkwood, see Nathan or Tammy Mottl of the Mission Committee to get registered. We are looking for 10 volunteers to walk. You can donate during worship in the offering plate by making a check to KPC and adding "Crop Walk (MS-80)" to the memo line or you can donate to individual walkers participating on the Crop Walk and make your check out to "CWS/ Crop." For more details of the walk see the web link www.burkecropwalk.org or the poster in the commons area.
