News and Events

Office Closed

Just a reminder the church office is closed on Friday’s during the summer months. The office will also be closed on Thursday, July 2nd in observance of the holiday.

We Need Your Help!

During these sultry days of summer, our air conditioning units in all three buildings are struggling to keep the indoor temperatures comfortable. On several occasions, we’ve found doors open and unattended, letting the precious cool air escape. Please enter and exit quickly, and close the door behind you. Thank you so much for your assistance.

Welcome Table

Our time to host Welcome Table at First United Methodist Church, Rutherfordton, is always the last Monday of each month. Our parish has been involved with this ministry since September 2013.

Members of St. Francis Church have generously given items of foods to be served, and a large number of volunteers have been present to help on the Monday we host the meal. Thank you for all you are doing to help with this ministry to serve the community.

Our date to host Welcome Table in June is Monday, June 29. The menu will consist of a Salad Bar, Dessert, and Beverages. Ham salad, turkey salad, tuna salad, pasta salad, potato salad, broccoli salad, chick peas, fruit salad, tomatoes, boiled eggs, etc. are needed for the meal.

Please contact Sherry Campbell (828-288-3801 or if you can help by supplying items for the meal or if you can help in any way with preparation for the meal on June 29.
