Welcome to Kingswood!

 

If you are seeking a place to worship … experience God’s love … be surrounded by a supportive congregation … grow in faith … and use your talents in outreach to others … we encourage you to visit us at Kingswood United Methodist Church.

  We’re located in Rural Hall, N.C., just north of Winston-Salem. Our contemporary architecture and spacious front lawn make us easy to spot us at 6840 University Parkway North.   We are a mid-size church with about 450 members, some of whom are long-time residents of Rural Hall, but many others have joined us after moving to this area from other communities or states.   Our congregation includes those who have grown up as United Methodists, others who have come to accept Jesus as adults, and those who have transferred their membership from other denominations.   You'll find us a friendly congregation that welcomes visitors and encourages active involvement.   Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:45; Worship services are at 11:00 on Sunday.   Whether you prefer “church clothes” or come casual, you will feel at home with our friendly congregation. We hope to see you soon!   For additional information, call the church office at 969-5437.

Annual Penny Campaign

Sometimes pennies come from heaven and sometimes they come from between your couch cushions. Kingswood will be participating in the Samaritan Ministries Penny Campaign throughout the months of October and November. Please collect your loose change and any bills you wish to donate and place them in the jars located in the narthex and downstairs.

One hundred and ninety nine pennies will provide a person in need with a hot meal at the Samaritan Soup Kitchen.

This year’s goal is $65,000. All of the money stays in the community helping our hungry and homeless neighbors.

 

Hurricane Relief Fund

Please continue to donate to the victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Checks can be made out to “Kingswood.” Make a note that it is for hurricane relief. These checks will be delivered to the United Methodist Commission on Relief (UMCOR) where 100% will go to hurricane victims.

Building Teams

Our nation has experienced two natural disasters in the last month, People affected by these storms need our help. Let us not forget those in our state who need help rebuilding after Hurricane Matthew last year. The North Carolina Conference of the UMC has not forgotten. They need help to rebuild homes in Eastern North Carolina. The Conference expects to be rebuilding homes in these areas affected by Matthew for at least two more years. Kingswood will be sending a team to Eastern NC on November 6–9. Anyone interested in going on this mission trip, please contact Billy Walker or the church office.
