outreach at RUMC


RUMC has an Outreach Coordinator, Linda Allen, who is available at the Church on Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Linda serves as a liaison between Pastor Shirley Oskamp, the Congregation, and the City of Rutland. Linda coordinates the Comfort Zone. Read more about this on the website.
