High Speed Internet in Rectortown!!

Big News....

All,  This is an historic moment for RUMC, as this is the first email sent thru the newly installed 10 Gigabit router and fiber cable installed by Claude Schoch, High Mountain Farm Broadband.  I am operating on RUMC 1 WIFI from the Social Hall.  The Community of Rectortown and surrounding area, has successfully been connected via fiber optic cable, under a project that was started just months ago.  Although there is much still to do, I wanted to mark this momment in time, as RUMC is depending on this service to help us continue to grow our congregation, means of providing high speed services and create a diverse set of capabilities at quality, speed and quantity not previously experienced.  We must now continue to expand our programs and applications as we learn how to maximize this service. Praise the Lord, Larry


Meet the Pastor!

Pastor Steve

Grace and peace to you in the name of our risen Lord, Jesus Christ!  Welcome to Rectortown United Methodist Church!  I hope you enjoy your worship experience with us!  I am Pastor Steve Weedling, and I want you to know that I am here to serve you.


My call in ministry is to be open, inviting, and inclusive to all who seek a relationship with God and with others, remembering always that relationships do not grow in isolation, but in community.  I believe that for relationships to truly flourish there must be trust; and that trust doesn’t just happen, but grows from both the knowledge and the experience of the ‘other’ – whether that ‘other’ is person, or God.  I am committed to providing a safe environment for all people, as together we engage in meaningful worship, prayer, the study of scripture, and mission.  In all of these ways our faith grows, and we - and the world around us - are transformed. 


I am grateful to God for this opportunity to share our faith journeys with one another!  And, I am excited by the possibilities and the wonders that will be revealed as God calls us and leads us into tomorrow! 


Please feel free to contact me with any thoughts, questions, or prayer requests you may have; or, just to talk story with one another!
