Rutland FBC Welcomes Youth Works Team

This year makes 10 years that Youth Works Groups have been coming to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus in our city.  It is the second year for FBC to host the Site Team.  These four young adults are living with us all summer, welcoming Youth Groups from all around the nation and from many different denominations to “camp out” at First Baptist Church while they serve in and with various helping agencies and community organization.  Our facility is filled with light and life, laughter and lots of love!


Summer Sermon Series

This summer sermons for June will move back and forth between stories of the Prophet Elijah from 1 Kings and stories of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke.  Then in July and August we will settle in to the Gospel exploring the life and teaching of Jesus.  The writer of Luke draws heavily on the similarities between Jesus and the prophets of old, often quoting from the books of Isaiah.
