Summer Feedback Sessions
Reservations begin June 12th

Summer Feedback Sessions

Your insight is needed! We need your feedback through guided conversations hosted in the homes of RUMC church council members. This could be the most interesting conversation you have all summer. Where is RUMC headed in the near future? What is our ministry strategy? What are the values that we hold close to our hearts and want to teach others? How can we reach our community for Christ and help newcomers grow as disciples?  What will worship times, style, and locations look like in the near future? Oh, and did we mention ice cream…

Life Sport Volunteer Opportunity

Join us in sharing God’s love this summer with children in our community! Saturday, July 16th thru Wednesday, July 20th
There are MANY ways you can get involved. Sign up HERE to volunteer.

BE:atitudes:  Blessed. Happy. Changed.  A Different Way to Live.

Jesus started his longest sermon with profound insights into human life. The words are challenging, deep, but incredibly meaningful and helpful when understood. Join us as we dig into each beatitude and become more like Jesus.

Nicaragua Mission Team

The ministry of the 17 members of our Summer 2016 Nicaragua Mission Team will include water filter distribution, home construction, a youth rally, and hosting a VBS type event.  Please be in prayer for these folks from June 11 – 18.  Pray that they are filled with God’s Spirit as they illustrate God’s love by sharing the Good News and bringing needed practical help to the people of Maranonal and Comino Real.

New Sign Soon

New SignThe sign will be placed perpendicular to Nashville Street at the corner of our parking area closest to downtown. It is substantial in size, including a 12 x 8 section of precast concrete and standing almost 9’ tall at the tower end. Brick and precast items will correspond with the main buildings.
The design of the sign echoes the tower feature on our main lobby.
The sign includes both our new local “r” logo and our denominational logo.

Personal Note

A huge thank you for all the cards, notes and prayers sent to Nan Pinkston after her surgery. She is doing all right; the doctors said it would be three months to heal completely. Thank you again for all of your thoughtfulness.
