Welcome to our website, which should tell you that we are the people of the United Methodist Church with "open hearts, open minds, and open doors," and that we are striving to be a loving, caring, celebrating, learning, serving, and growing family of disciples of Jesus Christ.

  We are here in Rutherford for about 138 years. In fact, we were formed as a church community before this town was founded officially. Over more than a century and three decade long ministry and mission we have not lost our corporate identity as a Christian Community, who is centered on the Word of God and "under the same management over 2000 years."

  Visit with us, and you may find us a microcosmic global church where each and every one in presence represents differences in many and various ways and yet united in the Spirit of God for the mission of transforming the world.

Rethinking Church
Pastor BJ Kim, D-Min.

    In her last week in the U.S., our departing music minister will perform two more concerts.  One on Monday, Sept. 17 at the Boys and Girls Club of Clifton. 181 Colfax Ave. 6:30 pm. Free admission. Get directions.    The second concert is Thursday, Sept. 20 at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center on Staten Island. Get details and directions.   Come out and hear our Seyeon before she leaves for South Korea later this week.



    Last Sunday was a show of love for Seyeon Chang, morning music minister who will be returning home to South Korea this week. Pastor BJ, Linda, and Lou gave testimony acknowledging all blessings Seyeon has brought to RUMC. Seyeon herself thanked the congregation for "your love and support."  As a token of appreciation, the church gave Seyeon an engraved photo frame with a group photo of the morning congregation. Thank you, Seyeon. We wish you a safe trip home and many blessings for future success. 



    It's back to school time. Please remember those who do not have enough to eat or who lack basic hygiene products. Hunger and poor hygiene make learning extra challenging for young students. Kindly pick up an extra item or two when you go food shopping and bring them to church on Sunday. We bring donations to the Rutherford Community Food Pantry and to CUMAC, a UMC outreach in Paterson.Check here to see what's needed most at the Rutherford Food Pantry. Thanks and God bless you!!
