Sharing Treasures Old and New

Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church is sharing treasures new and old in 2017, this 130th year of proclaiming and living the Good News of the Gospel. All members, affiliate members, and friends should have received a letter, brochure, and estimate of giving card in the mail. If you did not receive one, copies are available at the entrances of the sanctuary and committment cards are located in the pews and the church office. Please give your prayerful consideration to how you will respond to God's grace and generosity in your financial support of Rumple for 2018. Committments will continue to be accepted this month of October. All financial committments to Rumple are confidential, known only by the accountant.

Rumple member and elder, Cullie Tarleton,  shared his thoughts at worship on October 8. You can read his remarks here.

Tell Me More!
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.
