Welcome to Kingswood United Methodist Church.
Welcome to Kingswood a place where making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world in a loving and warm atmosphere is our end game. We want you to know how accepted you are by God, how forgiven you can be, and loved you are by God and the people of Kingswood.
Kingswood is literally the wood that our Lord, God, and King was crucified on. The bedrock of our existence is the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is God come in the flesh. He has given us the mission of reconciliation. Come be reconciled unto God, each other and yourself through Jesus Christ.
We are a praying Church. Come by and let us pray with you!
