A new lawn display welcomes all to the Rutherford Congregational Church. The church has a long and proud history of reaching out to the community and welcoming all into worship and fellowship. This is reflected in the churches Mission Statement - Keeping Faith, Reaching Out, and Welcoming All (Mission Statement) and their decision to become An Open and Affirming congregation (Open and Affirming Statement).
