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.

    Join us for services on our Mission of Love Sunday on August 11, as we send off our own Julie Cox who returns to her mission in the Philippines where she runs a feeding ministry for hungry children (see photo) and also ministers at a women's prison. Come hear Julie witness about her mission service and share her thanks for the RUMC community. Let's gather to surround her with prayer, support, and blessings on her Love Mission. 10 am English language service. Korean service is at noon. Fellowship follows each. All are welcome. Remember, during August, services will be held in Fellowship Hall while the sanctuary is being refurbished. God bless you Julie, and all those you serve.




    During the month of August, services will be held in Fellowship Hall as our sanctuary is refreshed with repainting, new carpeting, and other improvements. We are very blessed and appreciative. May God richly bless the generous benefactor whose gift made this possible.


    RUMC is seeking a pianist/music leader for the Sunday 10 am service.  This is a paid position. The pianist plays hymns for congregational singing, as well as some solo music during prayer and reflection. Must also be willing to accompany  liturgical dancers and occasional vocal presentations by informal congregational choir. Singing ability is a plus!  Concert opportunities, too. No weeknights required. Must speak fluent English and have reliable transportation. Candidates who live locally will be given preference.    Interested?   Email lindatelesco@yahoo.com or call Linda at 201-245-2865.  



    We hope everyone is having a relaxing, enjoyable summer, but while you are enjoying your BBQs, please remember those who do not have enough to eat. Marilyn reminds us that food pantrys run short of supplies in summer, because many regular donors are away. But hunger does not take a vacation. Please bring at least one non-perishable food item to church on Sunday for distribution 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.
