A CHURCH WITH A MISSION
“Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World”
A CHURCH WITH VALUES
A CHURCH WITH A HEART
RUMC has a long history of doing our best to meet the needs of the most needy in our local community and across the world. We send short-term missionaries to Haiti and Nicaragua. Locally, we host NCIC (Nourishing Children in Catoosa), Recovery at Ringgold, and Children’s Celebration of Christmas. We partner with local ministries like Christ Chapel, regional ministries like Action Ministries, and world-wide ministries like Operation Christmas Child. We help support new church starts.
A CHURCH WITH A HISTORY AND A FUTURE
RUMC has been part of Ringgold’s history form almost the very beginning. Located in historic downtown Ringgold we are an integral part to the character of our hometown. We are close to 175 years old. We are rooted in our past, gaining the maturity and consistency that comes from living through many social changes. But we are not stuck in the past. Our great heritage guides us to continue to try new things for God.
A CHURCH CONNECTED TO A LARGE CHURCH
