Rock Falls United Methodist Church has a very long and rich history in serving the city of Rock Falls and surrounding community.
Founded in 1869 the original church building at our current location held it’s first service on December 12, 1869. The parsonage was built in 1871. In January 1922 the original church was destroyed by fire early on a Sunday morning. Services were temporarily relocated to the newly constructed Rock Falls High School. The church was rebuilt and the new building was dedicated in September of 1923.
Another milestone for RFUMC was the addition of the Education Wing which was dedicated in October 1961.
A full history of RFUMC was put together when the church celebrated it’s 125th Anniversary in 1994. We’d be happy to share that history with you. Stop by for a visit….
