Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 30th at 7 pm! 
All are encouraged to attend Charge Conference in Rock Valley. 
We’ll be voting on decisions for our church, so a good turnout of our members would be beneficial.  We will need to arrive by 6:30, so meet at the church at 6 to carpool.

This coming November our church will be celebrating 140 years! We will be honoring the anniversary with a potluck on Sunday, November 2nd following worship during fellowship time.  Please watch for more information on this special occasion as it gets closer. 

Please visit our conference website at www.iaumc.org
for helpful information about spiritual care during disaster response.

A free devotional “Praying Into the Storm-Carrying the Burdens of Those Who Experience Disasters” by Rev. Karl Goodfellow is on the narthex table: pick one up for yourself and/or your neighbors and friends.

UMW Salad Luncheon Update
It was decided, after gathering input from some of you, that we will go ahead with receiving the $25 donations if you had signed up to bring food and or work. We will see how things proceed from that and if necessary will try a smaller fund raiser of some kind down the road.
We thank you for your input, generosity and understanding of our situation. Please make checks payable to UMW and either bring to the church office or give to Judy Griesse, Treasurer.

Beginning in September, the second Sunday of each month will be available for anyone wishing to provide Special Music during worship.  If this is something you would like to do, please contact the office to sign up.

The Sept./Oct. issues of Upper Room are in the Narthex, and are available for $1.50 each.

Extra directories have been placed in the pew hymnal racks.  It was thought that having these available during worship would be beneficial, especially for someone new to our congregation or just visiting!

If you (or someone you know) is not receiving the monthly church newsletter or weekly prayer partner emails & would like to be included, please contact the office to add your name to the list. 

If you would like to receive services from RRUMC Caring Hands Meal Ministry and/or Transportation Ministry, contact the church office.

Thank you!

~Our Mission Statement~

Inspired by the truth of Scripture, we believe that God's primary purpose for our church
is to bring all persons into spiritual relationship with God through Jesus Christ by our
uplifting words, our loving deeds and our Christian example so that we may reach out
and minister to others, in each of whom we see the very image of Christ.
