Join Us to Identify the Future Mission Priorities for RUC!

We need your participation in a Visioning Process to discern where God is calling us to be
and to achieve over the next 1-5 years.  There are two parts. 

In Part 1, each of us generates ideas on RUC’s purpose. Please attend ONE of the following Zoom meetings:


  • Oct. 23, 7 pm-9:30 pm

  • Oct. 24, 10am-12:30 pm

In Part 2, we will discuss responses from Part 1 and vote on mission priorities. So that you can receive documents during the meeting, please register to attend this Zoom meeting by emailing Lynne at:



  • Nov. 7, 9 am-2 pm

Wednesdays at 7

We are planning a Veterans’ Day program for November 11th RUC Wednesdays at 7 Program and also a slideshow for worship.

Please send photos of Veterans in your family along with their name and branch of service. Feel free to include a short anecdote as well. Send to bfrentrup9@gmail.com

For example, this is Max Frentrup, father of Chris, served in the Marines in WWII and with the US Navy Reserve Seabees in Vietnam.

Please send the names exactly as you would like them to appear, as the program will be recorded and posted on the website.


Sundays, 10:45 am

Sunday Worship

We are hosting our Sunday Worship using Zoom.  Gathering begins at 10:30 and live worship begins at 10:45.  You can join in the service at anytime by clicking the camera icon.

We love for visitors to join our worship.  Unfortunately in July our service suffered some hateful people coming in with hate messages and distasteful images so we now must password our service.

Please email the Pastor to get the password.

You can also view the service and all past services by clicking HERE.
