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.

SKY (Seniors Keeping Young) Group

SKY Group will work at Second Harvest Food Bank

February is a month focused on showing love to others, and the Kingswood SKY Group will be doing just that on Wednesday, February 10.

We’ll meet at the church at 8:30 and carpool to Second Harvest Food Bank, where we’ll help in the warehouse from 9 til 12. Then we’ll head to the Food Bank’s new restaurant, Providence, located in the Doubletree Inn on University Parkway.

We already have 15 volunteers signed up and can certainly use more. Each person must fill out a Volunteer Form; look for them on the SKY display in the narthex.


Ash Wednesday Service
