After the resurrection, Jesus appears to his fearful disciples and gives them peace (John 20:21). “Peace be with you.” This resurrection peace is given to each one of us. The Bible describes this peace as a peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7). Jesus tells his disciples that just like the Father sent him, so he is sending them. Jesus sends all of us into our families, businesses, grocery stores, everywhere with this resurrection peace. This beyond understanding peace is given to us to share with others.
When the weather permits, we will be worshipping outside. You are welcome to dress comfortably. When worshipping inside, we will follow our guidelines of masks, distancing, and no singing.
Our mission of the month is collecting items for children at the Community Child Care.
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.
