WOW!  Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Rocky Ridge Church (RRUMC).  “Wow!” and “God is Good All the Time” are expressions we use quite frequently at RRUMC because of the amazing things that God is doing in our lives and in the life of the church.  One of the things that is so good about Rocky Ridge is that we love God and enjoy the fellowship of one another.  It is not unusual for the congregation to hang out after our services on Wednesday night and Sunday Morning because we truly love and like to “catch up” with one another.  We invite you to be part of our worship, fellowship, ministry and mission.  Check out the rest of our website to see what God is doing through us and for us.


God’s Blessings to you!  Tam Wensil (Pastor)
