Thanks for coming. Wherever your life seems to be taking you, we are glad you're here.
We invite EVERYONE to join us for worship at 10:00am Sundays, year-round. You can find us at 25 Schoonmaker Lane in Stone Ridge, NY, at the corner of Schoonmaker Lane and U. S. Route 209.
Next Wednesday, Feb. 26th is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the season of Lent. RVUMC will have a 7 pm worship service that evening; during the day Pastor Caroline will be out with Mother Janet from CTK sharing "Ashes to Go" locally, and CTK (Christ the King on Route 213 East) has 7 am, noon and 5 pm services that day also.
Next Second Sunday Supper will be--you guessed it--March 8th.
Thank you to everyone who made our pre-Christmas and pre-Thanksgiving cookies-by-the-pound sales successful; we continue to offer Equal Exchange Fair Trade chocolates, coffees and teas.
The cantata "Lead Me Back to Bethlehem" was on Saturday, Dec. 21, at 2 pm.
Saturday, September 21 at 2 pm we were thrilled to host a brief vocal recital by Julia Caster (accompanied by Linda McCarthy). Julia was invited by the Conductors' Club of NY which met at RVUMC that day and we were ALL blessed by this musical offering!
Thank you to the many participants and volunteers who made last summer's VBS (Vacation Bible School) a wonderful experience. There was plenty of noise coming from our hill--almost all of it joyful. The theme was "Who is my Neighbor?" and five local churches joined for this exhilarating, exhausting endeavor. The "responsible adults" were "exhilarhausted" by Friday!
In order to respond to future domestic [including Puerto Rico!] relief needs we continue to assemble"cleanup buckets" and also hygiene kits for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief). We sent out 36 completed buckets in response to 2017's hurricanes and floods, and we'll keep filling relief kits as long as there are needs we can address. Donations of money and items for the buckets can be brought to the church when we're there; or call to arrange dropoff of items. Monetary donations can also be made online (see "DONATE" above) or via the "Give Plus" mobile app; specify "Bucket List." For updated bucket specifics, click HERE or scroll to UMCOR link below and on the UMCOR page select "Relief Supplies." We now have LOTS of scouring pads and non-cellulose sponges; we most need the heavy duty garbage bags, reusable "handi-wipe" type wipes and sturdy work gloves.
