Kirkwood United Church of Christ is a progressive Christian community gathered in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta and serving our surrounding communities, including East Lake, Oakhurst, Decatur, Edgewood, Candler Park and Grant Park. We are a vibrant congregation that worships together and serves together, that cares about others and seeks to be authentic, and is welcoming of all people. We are actively engaged in our community, living out Jesus’ gospel of justice, mercy, love and grace.
God is love, and at Kirkwood UCC we believe God’s love belongs to all of us. As a congregation, we strive to open our hearts without fear of seeming different and open our doors to share God’s love with the entire community. We not only worship together, but also serve together. We believe in reaching out to those in need, just as we reach out to hold each other up. Above all, we believe in the transformative power of God’s love in human hearts. Everyone, Everyone, Everyone is Invited and Welcomed!
