First Baptist Church of Rushville

Do you want to make a difference? Many people want to be able, at the end of their lives, to look back and know that they did something that counted, something that made life better for someone else. If that is your desire, the idea may seem daunting. “What can I do?” “Where do I start?” “How do I go about do it?”

The Bible is filled with instructions on how to make a difference that will not only help someone now, but will impact them forever. Come and join us at First Baptist Church this Sunday at 9:30 a.m., as we talk about how to make a lasting difference in the lives of others. As part of the worship service, we will honor the moms present and will offer encouragement to them as they endeavor to make a difference in the lives of their children. We hope to see then.
