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

We have been in Rutherford for 140 years. In fact, we were formed as a church community before this town was founded officially. Over more than a century and four-decade-long ministry and mission, we have not lost our corporate identity as a Christian Community centered on the Word of God and "under the same management over 2000 years."

Visit with us and experience a global church where each and every one  represents our human diversity and yet united in the Spirit of God for the mission of transforming the world.

    To all our members and friends:Pastor Lim announces that at this time, a Pilot Hybrid Worship Service is in progress. Sound systems and video systems are challenging points, and are being tested for both in-person worship and ZOOM worship. Feel free to join the in-person worship at 11 AM with Face Mask and maintain social distance. As always, pray for those who are sick with the coronavirus, for their families, for the medical and emergency professionals providing care, for those who have lost their jobs, and for all who suffer as a result of this pandemic. Be kind. Treat others as you would be treated. Help one another. Trust in God.

    Please keep these special intentions in your prayers this week. Pray for all those who are suffering injury, loss, and discomfort due to Hurricane Isaias and for all the medical and  emergency workers responding to the need. 

    Also keep in prayer the work we are doing to resolve certain needs of the church. We are working to correct the building violations cited recently by the Fire Department: Thanks to Bill, chair of the RUMC Board of Trustees for his work on this issue. Volunteers Tim, and Peter are helping to find solutions for a reasonable cost. Also The chimney problem that caused roof leaks into Fellowship Hall is now under study by Tim and James.

    Many thanks to those who have donated toward these needs. If you wish to contribute,please feel free to contact us for how you can donate.  God bless you.
