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.

Joyful Noise

This is our children’s music group! We practice every Sunday morning at 9:30 am. 

Chicken Pies

Please join us Monday, January 23 at 8:00 am to make chicken pies.

SKY (Seniors Keeping Young) Group

We will meet January 24 at 9:00 am in the fellowship hall. We’ll pitch in and make homemade soup to deliver to shut-ins, with extra to freeze for future use. In addition to soup chefs, we need people to help make Valentine’s cookies and prepare treat bags and cards for our members in retirement homes.

While the soup is cooling, we will plan trips and activities for spring. A number of people have expressed interest in a return trip to Wytheville, and we’ll take a look at the list of musicals planned for 2017.

Carolyn Cooke, head of Kingswood’s Safe Sanctuary program, will talk with us briefly. She will share with us a convenient way to ensure that the church has contact information for your family members and others in case of an accident or other emergency at church. A great idea!

So bring your energy and enthusiasm as we continue building friendships and show love to some very special members of our congregation. A love offering will be welcome to offset the cost of soup ingredients, but is absolutely not required!

NW Missional Network

February is Kingswood’s month to pack food backpacks for sixty-nine children at Rural Hall Elementary School.

A small amount of your time will make a big difference in our community.  Thanks for your help.
