Welcome

  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 139 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 everyone 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.

  • SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT DECEMBER 8

    PEACE is the theme for the second of the four Sundays of Advent. Join us for the 10 am worship service on December 8 when we will be blessed by a visit from Rev. Gina Kim, superintendent of the Palisades District of UMC in NJ who is the guest preacher for the service. Come hear her speak. Pray for peace as we light the second candle of the Advent wreath. Sing and celebrate Jesus as the Light of the World. Fellowship follows the service.
