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 136 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.
