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.

National Day of Prayer May 5

Kingswood will host the community event.  The program will begin at noon and conclude with lunch in our fellowship hall.

SKY (Seniors Keeping Young) Group


Thanks to Michael Saunders, who has arranged for us to tour the beautifully remodeled Reynolds Building on Tuesday, May 10. We’ll meet at the church at 9:00, enjoy the tour beginning at 10:00, and then eat lunch downtown. The hotel is providing free valet parking (please bring money for a tip).

It will help the hotel to know how many will be participating in the tour, so please fill out the bulletin insert or call the church office – or Jo, Mame or Linda — by May 5.

Since the SKY Group was first formed, we have had an enthusiastic and very loyal group of card players who meet every Friday, currently at the home of Mary Kiger. Now we have an additional opportunity for game players – to meet at the home of Vickie Saunders, who has offered to teach Bunco. (Note: Bunco is played with dice – no cards – and requires at least 12 people, so we hope you’ll come!)

The group will meet at Vickie’s  Monday morning, May 2 from 10:00 til 11:30. Her address is 120 Provence Court, King 27021.  Afterwards, we’ll head to lunch.

Pastor’s Retirement Lunch May 22

Kingswood will honor Pastor Sid and Patty with a covered dish dinner on Sunday, May 22 at 5:30 pm in the fellowship hall.  Please bring your favorite dish and join us.

Endowment Fund

As Mother’s Day approaches, one very special way to honor your mother is with a gift to the Kingswood Endowment Fund. Just include her name and whether the gift is in honor of her or in memory of her. Make your check payable to the Kingswood Endowment Fund. You may designate the gift for Outreach or for Property/Facilities or for the General Fund to be used as needed for above-and-beyond ministries.

Questions? Contact Darle Shouse or any member of the Endowment Fund Committee.
