Are You Unsure of Church?

Not sure about church in general? That's O.K. We understand and we are here to help you.

Rochelle United Methodist Church is a community of great people, some who've known each other since their childhood Sunday School days, some whose families have attended generation after generation since the congregation's inception over 170 years ago, and others who just found Jesus 3 days ago.

A community with strong ties to friendships, family, and history can be a bit intimidating to a newcomer.

But as much as these folks love their church, they also love Jesus. More than anything, they want others to know the hope in Christ that has sustained them throughout their lives. These are the kinds of folks who will be there for you through thick and thin. They've lived life's questions.

And so they want to make sure RUMC is a safe place to ask life's questions, to wrestle with what you believe and why and not be judged.

So simply come as you are and let God and others love you. That's all that coming to church needs to be.

And we know that when Jesus gets a hold of you, you will want to share that love as well!

What is Church?

So you've been scrolling this website and realize we didn't define church. Yikes! Sorry...

A church is a community of people who follow Jesus. A church can also be a building. We also like to think of church as a verb: people being the hands and feet of Jesus in the world.

At RUMC we're all three.

Who is Jesus?

This is a complicated question to answer in 5 sentences...

But we will try!!

In short, Jesus is God in the flesh. He lived over 2000 years ago in Jerusalem. He is still alive in the realm of God and in our hearts. We see Jesus as our savior, teacher, and friend. We believe that Jesus loves you and we'd be happy to tell you more about Jesus and why he's so important.

If you have questions, visit our church or Contact Us in the way that you're most comfortable.
