First Baptist Church

“Wow!” I thought to myself as I stood at the base of the mountain. It was so big and daunting! I knew it was going to be a long climb, that there would be narrow pathways along cliff edges and that the weather could change on the way up. So what motivated me to climb it? I was told that on a clear day, the view would be breath-taking.

Looking at God’s promises can be like looking at a mountain. The path to them can seem daunting - steps of faith, perseverance, and obedience. What would ever motivate someone to walk the path into those promises? The knowledge that their fulfillment will be beautiful and well-worth the steps taken to get there! Would you join us at First Baptist Church this Sunday as we look at the path leading to God’s promises being fulfilled in your life? We meet at 9:30 a.m. at 1431 West US Highway 52 in Rushville. See you then!

Main Street Christian Church

Main Street Christian Church enters their third week of their sermon series on “How to Follow Jesus as Lord” with the sermon “Sold Out,” a message on the way in which Matthew came to follow Christ. The sermon series is a part of the congregation’s 2014 Worship and Ministry emphasis “Follow!”

This Sunday at 5 p.m. the congregation will sponsor a public movie night showing of “Facing the Giants.” The movie tells the story high school football coach Grant Taylor who has not had a winning season in six years of coaching. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Taylor discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Coach Taylor receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear.
