She has talked with survivors and their family who have been victims of this modern day slavery, right here in Indiana and taking their stories to the public and educating them through public speaking. Here is the U.S. she has partnered with World Hope International. Please come out and be educated and ask questions.

First Baptist Church of Rushville

Who is Jesus? To many, He was a good man, a moral teacher who taught nice principles to live by. To millions of others, however, He is much more than that. He is someone worthy of being worshiped. “That’s a pretty strong statement,” you might say. “Why do you give Him that level of honor?” That is what we will be looking into this Sunday at First Baptist Church. We will be answering the question, “What sets Christ apart from all other religious teachers and makes Him worthy of your worship?” Come and join us at 9:30 a.m.

Also, this week, we will be remembering with honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We are ever so grateful for their tremendous gift to us.

St. Paul’s United Methodist Church

After much discussion, prayer, feedback from the congregation, and consultation with church leadership, the St. Paul’s worship committee has determined that a change in the Sunday worship schedule for the summer will best serve the needs of our members during this very active season.

Instead of the New Beginnings contemporary service at 8:30 a.m. and the more traditional service at 10:40 a.m., St. Paul’s will offer a single service on Sundays at 10 a.m. from June 1 through Aug. 31, blending elements of the New Beginnings and traditional services into a combination of old favorites and new favorites, with music by the Praise Team opening each service. Communion will be offered to all who wish it on the first and third Sundays of each month. The communion table does not belong to St. Paul’s, nor to the United Methodist denomination, but to Christ: all are welcome to participate.

Adult Sunday school will begin at 9 a.m. each Sunday. There will be no children’s Sunday school during the summer, but the children’s worship service for children in preschool through grade 4 will continue to be offered during the 10 a.m. service; older children are welcome to assist.

This change in schedule is an experiment, and the response to it will guide our choices in the future.

Vacation Bible School will take place from 9 to 11:45 a.m. June 2-6. Rivet invites your K – sixth grade child to enjoy Workshops of Wonder.
