FIRST BAPTIST WELCOMES NEW PASTOR


The First Baptist Church of Manchester Center, VT is pleased to announce the arrival of our new Pastor, Rev. Rebecca Sommons. Rev. Sommons is a recent graduate of Palmer Theological Seminary and was ordained through the sponsorship of the First Baptist Church of Lansdale, PA.


Rev. Rebecca will reside in Manchester Center with her husband, Matthew, a veteran of the United States Navy and a psychiatrist, and their two daughters, Grace and Natalie.


The First Baptist Church of Manchester Center, VT, an affiliate of the American Baptist Churches of the USA and the American Baptist Churches of VT and NH, was founded in 1781 and is the oldest congregation in the Town of Manchester. First Baptist Church is a faith community that believes in studying God's Word; sharing our gifts, graces and talents; and acting as Christ's compassionate servants in and to this world.


All are enthusiastically invited to join us in welcoming Rev. Sommons and her family to the Manchester community. The First Baptist Church is located on the corner of Main and Bonnet Streets at the roundabout in Manchester Center, VT.
