Welcome our new Intern for Christian Education, Kalie Gorham!

On January 1, 2018, Rumple will welcome Kalie Gorham as our Christian Education Intern. Kalie will serve with Rumple for 10 hours a week, primarily in the area of children's ministry.  Kalie is a junior at Appalachian State and was raised in the First Presbyterian Church of High Point.  We are excited to have Kalie coming on board for the winter and spring. She will be at Rumple on Sunday morning, January 7, ready to get to know the Rumple church family.  

Kalie says, " I'm excited to find a unique sense of community at Rumple just like I have in my home church and on summer staff at Montreat.  Some of my hobbies include playing ukulele and hiking.  My favorite thing about my home church is that I was given the opportunity to experience amazing things, with some of my best friends, and I was able to be completely myself."


Please join in welcoming Kalie to the Rumple staff team.
Our Wednesday afternoon education and music programming for children and youth begins again on January 10. New faces are welcome.

Email Kalie to join in the fun!

HISTORY
The church takes its name from the Rev. Dr. Jethro Rumple, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Salisbury, a frequent missionary preacher in the mountains, a summer resident toward the end of his life, and one of the most remarkable North Carolinians of his generation. Blowing Rock’s spectacular setting, cool breezes, and natural wonders began attracting summer visitors after the Civil War. Presbyterians were the first to build a house of worship in town. Among the founders were Col. William J. Martin, Sr., and his son and namesake, both professors at Davidson College. Others included Mrs. Emma Stewart, who ran a boarding house in Davidson during the academic year and one in Blowing Rock during the summer. Local and summer people quickly joined in the effort. A small frame structure was built in 1886, and the church was organized with eight members the following year.
