In the heart of Kirkwood, Greentree Community Church is a testament to the power of love and service. Established in 1997 by a handful of families with a vision for a vibrant, gospel-driven church, Greentree has become a cornerstone of the Kirkwood-Des Peres community and is the recipient of the Kirkwood-Des Peres Area Chamber of Commerce 2023 Distinguished Community Service Award.
For the first 18 years, Greentree operated as a mobile church, gathering in North Kirkwood Middle School. That experience created a culture of serving outside brick walls with events like '20:28", where members dedicate a day to serving the local community through yard work, home repairs, and painting.
Today, the church is located at 100 Kirkwood Place, providing space for various community activities, from support and recovery programs to music lessons, recitals, scout meetings, and more.
Nancy Prott, a driving force behind Greentree's outreach and mission work for over 15 years, has been instrumental in shaping the church's dedication to serving others. The church collaborates with key partners, including the Kirkwood School District, Kirk Care, Moms of Meacham, and Oasis International, to provide ongoing care to those in need.
Greentree's impact extends to under-resourced families with initiatives like Affordable Christmas, where families can purchase gifts for their children at reduced prices.
The church's annual Harvest Party exemplifies its commitment to joyful community engagement with a celebration filled with family activities that embody Greentree's vision of loving Jesus and all people.
Behind every visible act of outreach lies compassionate hearts empowered by faith. Through prayer, meals, counseling, and practical support, Greentree seeks to emulate the sacrificial love of Jesus. Greentree Community Church hopes that its actions speak volumes about the boundless love of God, inspiring others to follow the path of service and compassion.
