Organist needed at RUMC

   The Worship Committee is in the process of finalizing the requirements for a new Organist.  Joice Fredenburgh, our long time Organist/Choir Director has taken a new position, and will be leaving the 30th of September.  With only a few weeks to find someone to lead our music program, the plan is to first, find  a musician to play each Sunday for the immediate future; second, find a temporary fill to get us thru the upcoming Advent/Christmas season; and,third fill the position permanently in January.  So, if you are interested and able to play, please contact Pastor Steve, Debbie Hall or Larry Scheuble.  If you know someone that may be interested and able, please pass this information on to them and ask them to contact us.  If you have any suggestions on organizations/websites or other means to reach out thru, please let us know that also.  

   Worship services are Sunday @ 10:00; at Rectortown UMC, Rectortown , Va; instrument is an Electric Piano (other instruments could be considered). 

   In the meantime, we are also looking for a person to work with the Worship Committee to play recorded music thru the church organ, as a back up until we fill the position.  Looking for your support and prayerful consideration.

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!

Asked and Answered!!

Claude Thompson School Supplies

 On Monday, 13 August, hundreds of day to day school supply items, needed by students and teachers, were delivered to Claude Thompson Elementary School.  Just in time for the first day of school !  Linda Daniels, Outreach Committee Chair, members and volunteers purchased/donated the items that ranged from pencils and paper, to glue sticks and scissors, pencil boxes to backpacks, and any more.  These photos show the items spread across the social hall at Rectortown UMC, as volunteers prepare to pack the items up for delivery.  Many young students, that otherwise may not be able to purchase these items, will be able to learn and fully participate because of the great support.  A special call out to the Friends of Rectortown, again partnering to make this an extremely successful effort.
