Why do we as RRUMC members and attendees exist? 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. Rocky River United Methodist Church is a growing congregation in the Cleveland metro area.
