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.

  Yours in Christ,

Upcoming at Kirkwood: 

Make plans to celebrate Christmas Eve at Kirkwood! Since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, we will have a special worship service at 11:00 am on Christmas Eve! At 5:00 pm on Christmas Eve, we will have a family service. This less formal service will feature music from our handbell choir and soloist. It will conclude with the traditional candlelight singing of Silent Night, accompanied by handbells. The 8:00 pm service on Christmas Eve will be a candlelight service with violins and choir. The prelude, beginning before the service, will feature violin and organ. We will feature Christmas works from around the world. The service will conclude with the traditional candlelight singing of Silent Night accompanied by violins and guitar.

*The nursery will be available for all three services.*

Potluck This Sunday! We will have a congregation-wide potluck lunch this Sunday, December 17 following worship. The children will celebrate Jesus' birthday with a cake. Last names beginning with A-L are asked to bring a side dish or dessert; last names beginning with M-Z are asked to bring a main dish.

Children's Christmas Pageant: The Christmas Pageant will be during the worship service this Sunday, December 17.  For those participating in the pageant, please note the two remaining rehearsal dates and times listed below. If you have any questions, please contact Merissa Larson or Pam Johnson.
