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!

Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.....Philippians 2:4

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
(1John 4:16b)
