We are thrilled to announce that our Yard Sale last Saturday was a success and a joy. We raised over $625 toward our furnace fund and shared fellowship with shoppers and our community. Many thanks to all who helped, shopped, and donated to our sale. God bless you, and see you on Labor Day for the next one!

You may make a one-time donation or choose the recurring donation option, and you will receive a tax statement for your donation.

As you know, RUMC is in need of a new boiler. We have received a quote from the company that recently repaired our old boiler, and the replacement will cost around $50,000, a reasonable price for what is needed, but a very difficult amount for RUMC. Time is of the essence, since the company said it may take time to get all the materials needed. Your generous contributions are much appreciated.   Please write the check to "Rutherford United Methodist Church," and indicate on the check,
"Boiler Fund."  Then mail your donation to the church address shown on the left side of this page. Thank you in advance for your generosity and God bless you.  NOTE: Any ideas for fundraising are welcome.


There is always a need for donations to those who experience food insecurity.  Please donate regularly to the food pantries we support: Rutherford Community Food Pantry and CUMAC (a UMC outreach in Paterson, NJ).  When you go shopping pick up an extra item or two (or more if you can manage that). Bring your donations to church, and we will deliver them to the pantry. No expired items please. Your generosity is much appreciated.
