Our story


A church where anyone is welcome; 

a church free of judgement; 

a safe haven for the broken and lost.

While serving on the pastoral staff at Pinnacle Church in Canton, North Carolina, God began to lay the groundwork for the birth of Rutland City Church. Tim Owens regularly spent time leading mission teams from North Carolina to Vermont. 

Over the course of three years, God continued to work on Tim’s heart. While on a mission trip to Rutland in winter of 2014, it became clear to Tim and his family that the season was ripe to plant a new church in Rutland.

As God continued to make the vision for Rutland City Church clear, doors opened for other families and individuals to join with Tim in reaching Rutland for Christ. In September 2014, a team of 25 people began meeting in locations around Rutland. They were prayerfully laying the groundwork and building a team that would come together in launching Rutland City Church. 

March 1, 2015, Rutland City Church had its first official Sunday worship service. Many joined together in worship, teaching the word of God, and shared in the experience of seeing people say "yes" to Jesus. God has begun a new work in Rutland.

The people who call Rutland City Church home are unified in the common purpose of making disciples and planting churches. The story of Rutland City Church is still unfolding and we believe God is laying a foundation of fruitfulness that will forever change the landscape of Rutland and the surrounding communities. 

Don't wait, experience acceptance this Sunday
