After ten years of research and renovation, the historic Rutland Center Church is now available for individuals, families and groups that would appreciate its intimate atmosphere, suitable for small weddings, funerals, musical recitals, meetings, and other purposes. Use of the building is not limited to Town of Rutland residents.

It has a capacity of about 100 people. The well-insulated building is wired for light and electric heat, but may not be suitable for use during the coldest months of the year.

The church is located at 4528 Rome Corners Rd, three miles south of Oregon.
