First  Baptist  Church

First Baptist Church is a community of faith that is welcome to all. Located in the beautiful city of Rutland, Vermont, we seek to share the love, grace, and truth of God through word and action.


Wednesday Night Connection

This summer we're opening our doors at First Baptist on Center Street on Wednesdays, June 21 &28 and July 5, 12, &19 at 7:00 PM for an adventure in community building called Wednesday Night Connection. Everyone is welcome and so are your spiritual questions. We want to facilitate new connection person to person and us to God, the Universal One Who Loves Us. There will be singing, sharing, time for pray and quiet meditation.  We'll tell stories about Jesus and his encounters with regular folks like you and me. And yes, we'll have fun with all of it!  This will be informal, relaxed, and enjoyable.
