It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  The decorations, music, and television shows all focus on Christmas.  Advent is a wonderful opportunity to sharpen our focus on God's gift of Jesus Christ for everyone.  As we begin this Advent journey, may we know that God's message at Christmas is love and power in any and all the difficulties of life. 


There are several opportunities to enrich your Advent journey to Christmas.  Food and fellowship, worship and music, Lessons and Carols, and communion and candle lighting.  The Candlelight Communion Christmas Eve service will be at 7:00 P.M.  There will also be a candle lighting ceremony on the steps of the sanctuary at 8:30 P.M.  The Christmas day service will be recorded for you to watch from home at 10:00 A.M.  

Mission of the Month: Angel Tree


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.


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.
