Welcome to the First United Methodist Church of Rusk, Texas!

We pray that you sense the presence of God's Spirit among us and that your worship experience here draws you closer to Him. Come share your faith and fellowship with us. You're always welcome here at First Methodist Rusk!

For over 100 years, we have proudly shared Christ's love with our community. We invite you to visit and be a part of our growing congregation!

So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all....Galatians 6:10

From our Bell Choir to our Lay Ministry to our Youth & Children's Programs to service in local care facilities, we welcome you to get involved and be a part of our ministry serving our members and community. The blessings you receive through service are immeasurable!

We are reassured God has not forgotten his promises. Although we may be unable to understand why things happen, we are loved by a God who can redeem our situation and create something good.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."........... Isaiah 55:8-9

Love the Lord Your God...and hold fast to him.
Deuteronomy 30:20 NIV

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rain fall soft upon your field;
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
