All are Welcome
Welcome to the Rutherford Congregational Church website. We are very excited that you have joined us. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. The United Church of Christ is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Rutherford Congregational Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.
As Rutherford Congregational Church’s pastor, I extend a warm and hearty welcome to our website. I believe that as you explore it, you will find a church that lives its faith not only in word but through deeds of love, acceptance, and justice both in its local community and as a part of the United Church of Christ. But there is only one way to really experience who we are as a church… So, I extend an invitation to join us for our Worship Service and Church School on Sundays. Child care is provided.
Rutherford Congregational Church is a people who see their mission as keeping faith with the God revealed in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, reaching out with God’s love to the Rutherford Community and world, and welcoming all of God’s children into its family of faith.
As you can see from our mission, we are a very welcoming, inclusive, and open community of faith. We recognize that we are all on a journey of faith through worship and prayer, study and reflection, and service and mutual support of one another as we grow in our faith personally and together. I hope everyone visiting our website will always remember that God is still speaking, God loves you and so do we. If you have any questions or would like to speak with me, please contact the church office.
The Rev. Gregory J. Rupright
