Welcome to Rupert United Methodist Church!
in the heart of Rupert, Vermont, Rupert United Methodist Church offers a
sanctuary from life's struggle. Here we worship, study, fellowship, care for
each other, and seek to find our way as disciples of a living Christ.
Every church, from the largest metropolitan megachurch, to a small rural church like
Rupert United Methodist, has the same mission, and the same challenge: How, in
an increasingly secular world, do we spread
God's word and bring people into closer relationship with God?
We believe the secret is not a secret at all. We do it by
striving to live Jesus' summary of the entire scripture: "Love the Lord your God
with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind." and "Love your
neighbor as your self." We strive to do this as a church family that is always
open to new people, or returning members.
We invite you to join us, whether for
a single service while visiting Southwest Vermont, or regularly as part of our
church family. We are not a perfect people, so you don't have to be perfect
either. Come as you are. Bring your burdens, hopes, and energy. Share your faith
journey, and let us be part of yours.
