At Rocky River United Methodist Church we know that “It’s All About The Story.”
That is what we stand for and that is what we are all about. We don’t care how broken or messed up your story is to this point.
At this church we just want you to know that we want to be a part of that story so that we can help you see Jesus right in the midst of it. Why do we exist? Why does RRUMC exist in this world? Why do we as RRUMC members and attendees exist? We exist for one reason. Are you ready? We exist to help people meet Jesus Christ in the midst of their story. It really is that simple. That should be the filter that we run every single thing we do at this church through. That simple sentence lets people know that we will take them right where they are at in their lives. They don’t have to figure it all out before they come to our church. Jesus is in the midst of their broken and messed up stories. Our church exists to help people meet Jesus in the midst of that story.
With that filter in place, ministry in this church gets crystal clear. No matter what we are about to do, to start, to end, to dream into being, it needs to answer a simple question. Will it help people meet Jesus Christ in the midst of their story? If the answer is NO then the answer is NO. If the answer to that simple question is YES then we will let nothing stand in our way to bring it in to reality. Isn’t that why Jesus started the church when he called Peter the Rock? Church was created to lead people into a real and life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.
