Kirkwood has several ministry teams that oversee the ministries of the church. They include:
Our Community Team meets human needs in the church and in the world. We love to share the Good News of the Gospel and extend God’s peace and to people who are hungry for the assurance of God’s grace. We respond to our members’ needs for extra help with projects at their homes through our Nehemiah Ministry. Throughout the year, we listen for and respond to the needs of our community for food, shelter, and other forms of nurture. We also participate in our denomination’s special offerings.
Our Connection Team is led by members who extend hospitality to visitors and engage new members in our ministries. We love to make people feel welcome, nourished, and cared for. We offer seasonal events throughout the year, with past events highlighting Valentines Day, an Easter Breakfast, a summer pool party, cookouts, and much more. In addition to this, the team is responsible for organizing a weekly fellowship dinner on Wednesday nights at 6:00 p.m. This dinner is held almost weekly from September through May of the following year. The Connection Team also remembers birthdays and reaches out to support those facing life events such as major surgery, extended illnesses, and the loss of a loved one.
Faith Foundations Team
This team provides opportunities for a deepened relationship with God, for everyone from the youngest disciple to our adult study groups.
Praise and Worship Team
The Praise and Worship Team helps to oversee our Sunday morning worship services and seasonal special services. The team meets regularly with our pastor and other church staff to encourage and guide creative, genuine and meaningful worship experiences.
The Property Team ensures that our physical facility supports our mission. The team relies on the efforts of many volunteers who give generously of their time and resources.
The Stewardship Team cares for the church’s financial and staff resources and invites everyone to know the joy of sharing their special gifts and treasure with God.
