"Shining The Light of God's Love and Grace"
The historic Rayne Memorial United Methodist Church, with its unique and lovely Gothic-revival architecture, built in 1875, has had for 136 years, a strong and active ministry in the heart of uptown New Orleans. Because of its tall, graceful spire illuminated at night, she has become known as “The Church of the Lighted Steeple.”
But Rayne could also be known as “The Church of the Lighted People,” for her members seek to embody daily the light of God’s love and grace in a world of need. Knowing God, loving God, serving God, the people of this congregation seek to grow as deeply committed disciples of Christ, to make his Way of love our Way of life. Open to all persons regardless of race, class, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation, Rayne, a Reconciling Congregation, strives truly to be a church of "open hearts, open minds, and open doors." You are invited to become a part of this community of faith—to believe, belong, become. If you would like to explore the possibility of joining Rayne, please contact our pastor and plan to visit soon!
Rayne has a diverse and growing congregation with a wide range of musical, spiritual, and educational ministries for children, youth, young adults and mature adults, as well as ministries for college students, mature singles, and seniors. The Rayne Early Childhood Program is one of the finest pre-schools in the city with an enrollment of over 100 children and is accredited by the National Academy for the Education of the Young Child (NAEYC).
