Worship Services in Picturesque Rutland Chapel


Auditorium: 250 capacity, padded pew seating
Room Size: 55’ × 36’

Quietly tucked away behind towering maples and oaks sits this charming 250-seat wood and stone auditorium. One of Ridgecrest’s highest points, the traditional reverence of Rutland’s interior is complemented by the beauty visible through the many large glass windows. Warm, wooden beams and padded pews add character to this uniquely wonderful auditorium. Rutland provides sound and video projection capabilities.

Special Equipment Brought in by Performers

It is possible to use your own equipment or complete sound system in Rutland, but we do not recommend this option since we are unable to supply any power except the 110 volts that is found on stage.

Technical Notes

Other video configurations may be considered if time allows before AND after an event. When events are scheduled closely together, it is difficult to re-configure the video system, but we will work with the Event Planner to find the best solution possible.

Emergency Situations

In case of power failure, an emergency generator will power a few emergency auditorium lights and exit lights only. The generator does not supply electricity to the sound and stage lighting. North Carolina State law requires Event Planners to notify event attendees of the location of emergency exits in their meeting space.

Important Update

The health and safety of guests and team members is of utmost importance. Even though no COVID-19 cases have been tied to Ridgecrest Conference Center at this point, we have made the decision to not host events and guests (including individual stays) through April 30, 2020. We will continue to monitor additional developments and reassess as appropriate.

Previously made reservations for stays before April 30th will be canceled and fully refunded. Please note that credit card refunds typically take several business days to process.

Planners of events scheduled at Ridgecrest before April 30th: A member of our sales team will contact you to discuss rescheduling possibilities.

In these unprecedented circumstances, please join our team in praying for our communities, our nation, and our world.
