Mission

We are called by God to love one another, to share with one another, to serve one another, and to carry each other’s burdens. Your Mission Committee is responsible for coordinating KirkWood’s Christian missions, including our response to both local and worldwide needs.

MEALS FOR VETS: We are continuing our Vet Meal Mission by providing meals for 2 Vet homes (5 men in each home) every Monday and Thursday. These homes support Vets transitioning from homelessness. Please consider assisting in this mission by fixing a casserole for 5 men. You can sign up through Signup Genius or call Gloria at 757-223- 4104/757-719-0995 or Zora at 757-833-6406/757-869-3784 and they will sign you up, answer questions, and arrange for pickup.

PUMPKIN PATCH: The funds are used to support various missions, both youth and adult, in our church community and outside of this community. These funds also provide support for mission trips and for the KirkWood Mission Team (youth & adults) to go out into the local community to build wheelchair ramps, repair kitchens, bathrooms, roofs etc. for needy families. In addition, money was sent to Pumpkin Patch Inc. and to the Navajo Indian Reservation that grow and distribute the pumpkins.
