Care Ministries

RUMC  is committed to changing lives through caring acts and missions, both within our congregation and to the ends of the earth. It takes members of all ages working together to care for needs within our church family and in the places Christ calls us beyond our church. For information regarding these ministries, contact Mary Stokes, Care Coordinator, or 770-261-1741.
