Come and Join Us for Worship
that will be

We strive hard to have passion for God and to love His people.  We are striving to become a multi-ethnic church, where every nation, tribe, people, and language gather together to worship God.

Who We Are

Rock Springs United Methodist Church was founded in 1866. John Teague rode a gray horse to Rock Spring from South Carolina, where he traded his horse for 202 acres of land. He gave two acres of land from that land, on which the old chapel was eventually built upon it. The current “old chapel” is the third building on that site, as at least one of the previous ones burned.

Rock Springs used to be on a circuit with five other local churches, meaning that a single pastor would serve all five churches. Once the Southern and Northern Methodist Churches unified in 1939 and then eventually, when it was called the United Methodist Church in 1968, membership and pastors began to stabilize as the area began to grow.

Many years ago, the foundation was laid for this church, and we have indeed been richly blessed to continue to live out God’s vision for his church and this community.

Our worshippers consist of English-speaking people, Koreans, Jamaicans, Liberians, Chilean, and Chinese. As the surrounding community is changing, Rock Springs UMC strives to be a multi-ethnic church, where every nation, tribe, people, and language gather together to worship God.

ARKID Ministry

(Children)

ARKID's uses The Gospel Project Curriculum for Kids. It is a Christ-centered Bible study that follows a chronological timeline of Bible events.

Each week, these stories come to life through video, music, and activities. The kids connect biblical events to God's ultimate plan of redemption through Christ.
We welcome and love teaching and caring for the elementary children that are entrusted to us. 

Chinese Mission

Chinese-Americans meet together to worship on Sunday afternoon at 2:15, and have the fellowship and the Bible study afterward.

On particular Sundays such as Chinese New Year, Easter, and World Communion Sunday, we have the joint worship service in English at 11:00 am. During the joint worship, Mandarin and Korean languages are on the PowerPoint for the worshipers to follow in their native tongues.
