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 138 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.

Rethinking Church
Pastor BJ Kim, D-Min.

  • ANNUAL CHURCH CONFERENCE OCTOBER 19

     An RUMC team is prepared for Saturday, October 19 to attend the Annual Church Conference at the Korean Community Church in Englewood,NJ. This is a very important conference with the UMC facing critical decisions about the unity of church, particularly due to differing views on key issues. Keep the UMC, and especially RUMC in prayer for this event. God is doing a great new thing through us. Let's be ready to respond.
     

        

  • WELCOME ART, OUR NEW MUSIC DIRECTOR

    A big welcome and bravo to Art (Arturo) Spinetti, our new music director who joined RUMC this month. Art comes with a decades long distinguished musical career that includes singing operatic tenor roles throughout Europe and the U.S. He has also produced opera, teaches, and directs. Art attended the Manning School of Music in New York and continued his musical and vocal training in Rome. He has already coached our choir and has big plans for the future. We are blessed to have Art with us. Join us for worship and experience the music.

  • ANTI-POVERTY TASK FORCE

    The Anti-Poverty Task Force of the UMC Palisades District is collecting donations for distribution to those in need.  We are asked as a church to collect at least 15 each of the following: Packages of cooked chicken, snack packs of fruit or applesauce, cough drops of EmergenC, sunscreen or lotion, new men's or women's underwear (size medium). Collected items will be sent to Calvary UMC in Dumont to be assembled on Saturday, November 2.  Please be as generous as possible. Thank you. 

  • FOOD PANTRY: PLEASE HELP OUR HUNGRY NEIGHBORS

    Autumn is here...the season of plenty and of thanksgiving. Sadly, many of our neighbors face hunger and food insecurity every day. Please help them. Kindly bring at least one non-perishable food item to church on Sunday. Our collections are distributed to the Rutherford Community Food Pantry and to CUMAC, a UMC outreach in Paterson. Check here to see what's needed most at the Rutherford Food Pantry.  Thanks and God bless you.
