Welcome to Rutland UMC. We are glad you stopped by!

We are a community of faith that sees ourselves as followers of Jesus and as children of God. We do all we can to live in ways that reflect this self-knowledge both on a personal level. This shows up in the choices each of us makes as individuals, and on the communal level as a group of people who work together to do the work to which we feel called in Jesus’ name. Our participation in this faith community is an act of love, hope, and courage, as we support one another along this wonderful journey called life!

 

We are a downtown church with a passion for hands-on ministry in service to the surrounding community, striving to put our faith into action. In January 2018 we left our older building in a residential neighborhood and chose to take up residence at 60 Strongs Avenue where we have instituted ministries that serve people who feel disenfranchised from society in a variety of ways (homelessness, loneliness, addiction, Veterans, etcetera) as well as those who are struggling with poverty and its ramifications. Every Monday through Thursday, we host “Comfort Zone” which is a place in the church where people can relax, eat a nourishing breakfast and get support from our staff in navigating the challenges facing them. 

Worship is central to the life of this community of faith so it is important that our Sunday morning celebrations reflect the needs of everyone who enters the doors. Even though we are all different, the hope is that when we worship together, the experience will touch our hearts, inspire our faith, and bring us all closer to the words and examples of Christ. Please join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am for worship and the accompanying Sunday School for children.   

May the Holy Spirit be with us as we turn our hearts, minds, and spirits toward God in all we do.
