How Can I Make a Difference?
Welcome! You have come to the place where your direct involvement can begin. It is especially exciting that you are interested in joining with us to make a difference.
RUMC has a long and rich history of caring and showing God's love in the community, the city and around the world. We have opportunities that range from a commitment of just an hour each month to ongoing commitments. These range from ministries right here on campus to mission trips halfway around the world. Rest assured, we do have a place for you to share your gifts and talents in meaningful service. RUMC is a large church with many opportunities for service -- through both our missions and volunteer ministries.
A common misconception with a large church, however, is that people think that we have enough help because we have so many members; nothing could be further from the truth. We need everyone to serve.
When you give your gifts of service in the name of Christ, you are being the hands and feet of Christ. God uses your talents, your passions, and your heart to show His love and care. Of course, He could take care of all needs Himself, but that is not the point, nor His plan. By letting you and me participate, we learn to have the heart of a servant, as Christ taught us.
Follow this website to current volunteer (ministry) opportunities. Look them over and see if anything jumps out at you. If you would like us to direct you through this process personally, call or email us. It's worth the effort. Our goal is to help you find your place in ministry -- where God wants to use you to make a difference -- not to "recruit" you as a volunteer.
Don't see what your looking for? If we don't have a particular ministry that you are interested in, with your help, we may be able to start one. This past year we started a recreation ministry, a clown ministry, and a prayer quilt ministry, because people came forward, wanting to use their gifts to show God's love.
Just remember -- we all have gifts to expand God's kingdom! Where do you fit in? Come on, jump in. God is calling you.
