Bible Study  

Vision Statement of the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church:

“Disciples are life-long learners influencing others to serve.”

We will be offering a study on the Book of Genesis beginning in January 2020.  It will be offered at Rectortown UMC on Tuesdays at 11:00 am and again at 6:30 pmbeginning on January 14th.  And, it will be offered at Middleburg on Thursdays at 11:00 am and again t 6:30 pm beginning on January 16th.  You are free to choose what day and time you attend.  And, you can mix and match as you desire to best fit your busy schedules!  You will not need any special books for this study.  All you will need to bring with you each week is your favorite Bible, lots of questions, and an open mind!  Hope to see you there!  And don’t forget to bring a friend or two with you!

Un-decorating and Packing

We will take down the Christmas decorations and pack them up on Saturday, January 11th, 2020 beginning at 10:00 am.  We need your help to get things properly sorted, packed, and stored for next year.  Hope to see you there!

Cooperative Parish Joint Worship

 The next joint service will be hosted at Middleburg United Methodist Church on Sunday, January 19th, 2020.  There will be special bluegrass music and a meal (provided by MUMC) afterwards.  It should be another great event!  Hope to see all y’all there!  And, don’t forget to bring a friend or two, ya hear?


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!
