Kirkwood United Church of Christ is a progressive Christian community gathered in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta.
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 believe in extravagant welcome and strive to open our hearts without fear of seeming different. We advocate justice for all. We extend hospitality as a sign of God’s inclusive love and open our doors to share that love with the entire community.
We worship together, but we 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.
As Christians, we are called to love our neighbors. At Kirkwood United Church of Christ we gratefully welcome immigrants and refugees. We are advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, affirming a place at God’s table for everyone as witnesses to Christ’s extravagant welcome. We give thanks for the abilities and disabilities – apparent and unapparent – we all possess while ensuring our campus and fellowship is accessible to all. We are committed to boldly proclaiming that we are a justice-doing, peace-seeking church through our multi-racial, multi-cultural witness. We care about God’s creation and all that is within by caring for our environment and being good stewards of our resources. We work for economic justice across the spectrum of race, class, and global inequality. We work to reduce stigma and promote the inclusion of people with mental illnesses / brain disorders and their families in the life and leadership of our congregation. Jesus didn’t turn people away, and neither do we.
