Let me tell you about Rupert Methodist. Nestled in the heart of Southern Vermont, Rupert United Methodist Church offers a sanctuary from life’s struggles. 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 faith community like Rupert United Methodist, has the same mission and the same challenge: How, in an increasingly secular world, do we spread God’s love and bring people into a closer relationship with God?
We believe the secret is not a secret at all. We do it by striving to live Jesus’ own summary of the entire scripture as described in Matthew 22:40 – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind.” and “Love your neighbor as yourself. We strive to do this as a church family that is always open, loving, and kind. Our motto is “Love. No exceptions.”
We invite you to join us. As a result of Covid, we have developed a unique service that can be attended in our sanctuary in a safe environment where every church member has been vaccinated, or online. Come as you are. We are not a perfect people, so you don’t have to be perfect either. Come as you are. We don’t care what color, sexual orientation, job you do or don’t have, where you are from, or where you have been, whether you have been part of church forever, or a newbie, or seeker, or a person hurting because of another church experience in your past. Bring your burdens, hopes, struggles, and energy. Share your faith journey, and let us be part of yours. Let us love – together.
Why is this blog called Two Tiny Churches?
When I began this blog, I pastored two tiny churches. Rupert Methodist and Chapel on the Green. Today I only pastor Rupert Methodist, but by the time that change happened, the blog already had a following, so I kept the original name.
