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.
Pastor BJ Kim, D-Min.
Join us Feb 26 for another exciting service featuring the joyous music and ministry of Gabriel and Liesl Salameh. Last Sunday, Liesl delivered a "punchy" children's sermon and Gabriel's passionate preaching on the scripture raised us up to greater heights. "I could listen to him all day," said one member. Service is at 10 a.m. Pre-service music starts at 9:45. See photos.
Praise God! Pastor BJ reported that his mission trip to Thailand and Nepal is going well. He is scheduled to return home on February 27 with plenty of inspiring stories and photos to share. God bless you Pastor BJ and safe travels.
An Evening of Christian Contemporary Music and Ministry on Feb. 10 was a joyous night with celebration than lifted us to the heavens.
Thanks to Gabriel, Liesl, and their friends for fantastic music and song. Check out the photos to share in the singing, dancing, and praising. PHOTOS.
