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.

    Thank you all for your service and commitment to our church.  


    We were delighted last Sunday to welcome Rachael Delekta, our member from Florida, to in-person service with us. Rachael, a faithful member of RUMC left NJ in 2014 to live in Florida. Thanks to ZOOM, she has been able to rejoin our services again since last spring. This month, she traveled north for the first time in over a year to visit family in Pennsylvania, then drove over to NJ for worship at RUMC. "It is so wonderful to be back," she said, meeting Pastor Heeyoung and some members in person for the first time. Rachael was especially grateful for prayers that supported her during her surgery to donate a kidney to her friend, Stacey. "I don't know how I would have done it without all your prayers," she said. After worship, everyone shared a joyful lunch and fellowship. 


    What is your vision for the future of RUMC?  In July, we will begin a three-church partnership, including Lyndhurst UMC and First United Methodist Church in Passaic. We pray for Pastor Lim as he takes leadership of a third church (Passaic), and we welcome our new assistant pastor Daniel Jimenez. Let's rejoice in this opportunity to increase activity, share ministry with others, and strengthen our finances as well as our faith. 


    RUMC needs a fundraiser.A Yard Sale is the perfect thing. The specific date will be announced soon. Meantime, as you do your spring cleaning, and want to discard items you no longer want or use, please donate them to the sale.  Clothing, shoes, housewares, home decor, small furniture, small appliances, games and toys,  sporting goods, etc.  You can bring these to the church on Sunday or during the week.  Let us know if you need help.
