Open hearts.  Open minds.  Open doors.  We strive to make those words a reality here at RUMC.  If you’re considering joining us one Sunday, we encourage you to read on, where you’ll find information to help you plan for your visit, and know what to expect when you arrive.  And of course, if you have questions we haven’t answered here, you can email us, or give us a call at 203.838.0049.

If you’re planning to visit us for the first time, here’s a quick list of what you can expect:

  • worship begins at 10:00 a.m.
  • the sanctuary is accessible through the main door on Pennoyer Street
  • our (handicapped) accessible entrance can be found through the Nursery School doors
  • you’ll be welcomed at the door and invited to sit wherever you like
  • dress tends to the informal side, especially during the warm summer months
  • we celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month (and other special Sundays throughout the year), and all are welcome to participate in the sacrament
  • Sunday School (for ages 4-10) meets during the school year, and child care is available year-round
