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 136 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.
Pastor BJ Kim, D-Min.

Our RUMC Advent Project 2016 will be an accelerated food collection program to benefit both the Rutherford Food Pantry and CUMAC, (Center of the United Methodist Aid to the Community) the Paterson-based nonprofit that feeds thousands of hungry people each year. Please consider increasing your weekly food donation during Advent to at least two items, more if possible. Thank you and may you be richly blessed this Advent season.
Come join us Friday evenings for food, friendship, and faith. We explore scripture readings, share a bite to eat, and enjoy great conversation. We go from 7:30 to around 9:30. CHECK BACK HERE FOR UPDATES.
