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.

    Join us for Sunday worship May 19 where we celebrate the Fifth Sunday of Easter.  The reading from the Gospel of John tells us about the love Jesus asks his disciples to share with one another and with the world. Come be embraced by the loving RUMC community.

    Services are 10 am (English) and 12 noon (Korean).
    Fellowship follows each service.  




    Congratulations to our Mariama, a student at Felician University who is preparing for a future medical career.
    Mariama's grade report for the semester showed all A's
    and a perfect 4.0 GPA.  Mariama hopes to become a pediatrician and asks our prayers to support her in her studies and career goals. God bless you, Mariama. 
    We are praying wih you!


    While In today's gospel, Jesus asks us to love one another. Please show your love for our brothers and sisters who do not have enough to eat.  Kindly bring at least one non-perishable food item  to church on Sundays for distribution 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.
