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!

The New Year is Off to a Great Start


New Organist


Maddy Walker has stepped in to provide music for RUMC.  Maddy started with a great job on 20 January 2019, with a very appreciative congregation and Worship Committee.  Maddy is a High School senior, and is already taking taking college classes.  Thanks Maddy for adding your musical talents to RUMC worship services!

Nominations and Leadership Development Training


On Saturday 19 January 2019 the NDLC hosted a Leadership Development Event.  The purpose of the event was to present information on: how the various committees fit together; who the leaders are; what the NLDC and Administrative Council do; plus, sharing administrative and business processes used to operate efficiently and effectively.  Seventeen Officers, position holders, committee members and the Pastor attended the four and one half hour event, covering eight committees (NLDC, Amin Council, Trustees, Finance, S/PPRC, Worship, Nurture and Outreach).  Several parking lot items (items not on the agenda) were identified which will be reviewed and responded to thru the Admin Council.  Stay tuned for pictures of the event!
