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.

The occasion will be celebrated on Communion Sunday, March 7 with a special presentation by church historian Bill Grindler about a well-known and beloved hymn "Face to Face (with Christ my savior), which was composed in 1898 in the RUMC parsonage.  We will also sing the hymn together and re-affirm our commitment as the faith family of RUMC.
