Welcome to First Baptist!

First Baptist welcomes you to our weekly worship at 9:30 AM Sundays. We worship together, singing hymns old and new, listening for the Word, and endeavoring to be a community of faith that cares for one another.

First Baptist is also a leader in community efforts to meet the basic human needs of the greater Bennington area. We work together with organizations, interfaith and non-profit alike, to encourage collaborative efforts and help our neighbors in need. There are three non-profit agencies located in the church: Vermont Center for Independent Living, Family Time, and The Bennington Free Clinic (for more information visit the "Non-profits at FBC" section).   You can learn the latest about our ministry through our  newsletter, that cn be downloaded via the link to the right under the "Newsletter and Annual Report" section.

Come and join the worship and work of the gathered people called "First Baptist"!
