Who We Are
Welcome. Regardless of your beliefs or your doubts, RUF is a place to explore Christianity and the radical declaration of God’s love. Our hope is for everyone to grow in their understanding of who Jesus is and all that He has come to do. We’d love for you to join us as we seek to understand what it means to love God and our neighbor. We invite you, no matter where you are in the process, to RUF.
