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.

    reading for the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost is Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23.  Pastor Lim will preach the sermon titled "Good Soil, Good Church."  Hymns from the UMC Hymnal are: Great is Thy Faithfulness (#140), I Surrender All (#354), and Here I Am, Lord (#593). We rejoice and give thanks that God has chosen Pastor Lim to shepherd us. Everyone was blessed by Pastor Lim's beautiful first service at RUMC last Sunday. His technical expertise deepened our worship experience and delighted us with beauty and a sense off togetherness.  In his first sermon at RUMC, Pastor Lim preached about the transformative power Jesus can have on our lives. Experience Pastor Lim's first RUMC worship service here.
