Pastor Larry Rubingh is a warm, gentle, witty soul.  He spends a lot of time getting to know the people at church, and will wait at the door after benediction with kind words for each and every person.  His sermons, based on 4 letter words (seriously effective!), are inspiring and motivational for everyday living.

Educated at METHSCO in Ohio, he has served in many different communites over the last 40+ years, bringing, the light of the Lord to each of them.  He fervently prays for every joy and concern in the congregation, visits those medically incapacitated until they heal and can return, and spends more time than is required at the church, preparing it for God's people.

He has a a caring, compassionate, and uplifting personality; he genuinely looks forward to seeing you, always.

 

"Pastor Larry delivers engaging sermons with humorous anecdotes and relevant messages for daily living!"   ~ J.C.S

 

A recent newspaper article said:

"Services well attended; church welcomes new pastor"

"Allen - The Allen United Methodist Church, 167 W. Chicago Road in Allen, held its annual Friendship Sunday service Sept. 17, [2017] and it was well attended,  The congregation prayed for an attendance of over 70 so the new pastor could receive a coconut cream pie in the face.  No one was disappointed with an actual attendance of 79 people.

Pastor Larry Rubingh gracioulsy accepted the pie.

He has definitely set a spark in the church which is quickly turning into a roaring fire.

Church members said they cannot wait for Sunday to come just to see what pastor Larry has in store each week.

The congregation worked hard to get the chuch spruced up for the special Sunday.  Judy Evers served as organist helping Tom Marshall with the traditional but lively music.  Julie Albright performed the contemporary piece "Friends" and kids were treated to a young people's time.

The service was followed by a brunch of spinach quiche,fruits, desserts, and other assorted foods.  All in all, the congregation agreed it was a great Sunday spent with friends and family, worshiping God.

The church said they are thankful for pastor Larry and his wife Linda and all the blessings God has bestowed upon them.

The church welcomes the public to the next service at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, or any Sunday.
