Seeing with new eyes. Bartimaeus is a blind beggar sitting on the road between Jericho and Jerusalem. What do the crowds see? A nobody. A person of no value. However, after Jesus heals Bartimaeus, people see with new eyes. The crowd of people now see Jesus with new eyes. They also see Bartimaeus with new eyes. The lesson here is Jesus sees everyone as a somebody. Everybody is a somebody in the Kingdom of God. Are you seeing people with new eyes?
We will resume inside worship beginning Sunday, October 24th following CDC guidelines, asking everyone to wear masks.
On November 7th, we will recognize members who have died in the last year. We will also have a ceremony in Martin Hall remembering loved ones who have died by listing names and lighting candles.
Responding to God's love and Grace
Our Vision is to Serve Christ,
Through Service to Others
May the peace of Christ be with you!
Every Sunday we pass the peace of Jesus Christ to one another and we extend this peace to you. First Presbyterian Church is a historical church with a tradition of service to the community and the world that dates back to 1869. As we continue that tradition, our diverse, multigenerational congregation finds joy in meeting together to worship God, grow in our faith, and encourage one another.
Serving is at the heart of our vision. This is a place where one can find healing, acceptance, and new direction in life through the power of Jesus Christ. It is our hope that every member will identify and use their spiritual gifts and grow in their generosity. God invites every one of us into life-changing ministry. We invite you to attend a worship service, fellowship event, or service opportunity where you will learn more of God’s love in Jesus Christ, grow in your understanding of ministry, and find your place of sharing your life with others. You have something special to offer people around you.
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
1847 - The life of a church begins with a dream to which faith and commitment are added. The dream that became First Presbyterian Church in Hendersonville began with a small group of people in the mid-19th century along with the support of First Presbyterian Church in Gallatin.
