CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH
449 W 6 TH STREET, RUSK, TX 75785
A Southern Baptist Congregation
God’s Word, the Bible says, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth up the bones" (Proverbs 17:22 KJV). Laughter, a cheerful heart, is one of God’s best prescriptions for pain in the soul and body. The story is told about a man who sped up to a pharmacy, ran up to the pharmacist and asked him if he had anything for the hiccups. The pharmacist, without a word, hit the man between the eyes and knocked him down. The man slowly got up and asked again if he had something for the hiccups. The pharmacist replied, "You don’t have the hiccups anymore, do you?" The man replied, " never did, but my wife out in the car does."

Sometimes people will misunderstand you, assume too much, or make a judgement before they have the whole story. It pays to have a sense of humor in today’s world. Hello, I’m the pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church in Rusk. My name is Ben Talley, and, no, I don’t have the hiccups, nor does my wife. There is not enough space here to tell you the whole story, but I would like you to know some of the story about our church.
