Turn your clocks FORWARD one hour.
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 who 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.
Worship services are at 11:00 on Sunday; Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:45.
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.
We have gathered some great suggestions for local trips, day trips and overnight trips, along with activities we’d like to do at church and outreach opportunities to help others. Thanks for helping us compile such a wonderful list of possibilities. Now, we just need to get started!
Our first get-together is scheduled for Tuesday, March 11 at 10 am in the fellowship hall, with Thursday, March 13 at 10 am for those who can’t come on Tuesday.
We will have a Baked Potato/Salad Bar, so come hungry! Our program for the evening will be presented by Glenda Hill, who will describe services available through AAA, including trip planning, roadside assistance and more.
We will be hosting a cluster worship service including the congregations of St. James and New Hope. Let’s have a great turnout! There will be a light meal of sandwiches and cookies in the fellowship hall at 6:15, with the service in the sanctuary at 7:00.
If so, please contact the church office before May 1. We are gathering information for our Recognition Sunday when we celebrate our high school and college graduates.
The 12 churches of the Northwest Cluster began a program last fall to feed children in need at Rural Hall Elementary School. There are over 200 children on the reduced cost lunch program at the school. We started the backpack program with 14 children, and it is now up to 36 children each week. Many thanks to Pastor Sid, who picks up the empty backpacks and delivers the filled ones each week. He estimates we are reaching at least 90 people with this program because we pack enough for the parents also. What a blessing this ministry is to our community!
The Soup/Salad Lunch in February was a big hit! Thanks to everyone who made a delicious soup or dessert for the event. Everything was fantastic and The Building Team received a generous donation. Thanks for all your support!
The First Annual Chili and Dessert Competition was also a major success, with a great turnout and delicious recipes. Winners were:
Alan Lambert Maxine Kiger
Ed Wall Hazel Rouzer
Deb Dougherty Janice Wall
There was no charge for the meal; however, generous donations were made, which will help fund future activities for the congregation. Many thanks!
Coming up in March we have the Third Thursday Supper at 5:30 on March 20. We will have a Baked Potato/Salad Bar, so come hungry! Our program for the evening will be presented by Glenda Hill, who will describe services available through AAA, including trip planning, roadside assistance and more.
April 5 is our church/community yard sale. You can donate items or rent a table for $25; just see Gina or LuAnn. There will be more announcements and flyers coming about the yard sale in the very near future.
Our March meeting for the Koinonia Group isn’t set yet, so look for an announcement in future bulletins and please come and join us!
Are you receiving the mid-week “Keeping Up” email from Kingswood? Do you receive periodic Phone Tree announcements? If not, please contact the church office at 969-5437 to update your contact information. Thanks!
As you plan your summer vacation, please keep those dates free. We are returning to a four-night schedule, and an exciting program is planned. See you there!
