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 for hybrid worship this Sunday at 11 am. Hybrid Worship includes those who are worshipping in-person in our sanctuary and those who are worshiping from home via live-streaming of the service. You are strongly encouraged to mask for the safety of others, however, masks are not required. If you are sick, symptomatic, or have been exposed to covid, please refrain from worshiping in person.
