Welcome to First Presbyterian Church. We are called by God’s grace. In his devotional, Living the Message, Eugene Peterson describes God’s calling this way, “God has the capacity so large in love and purpose that he calls us in order to do something for us – to give us something. Grace.” We hope you join us to discover more of God’s grace for you and find ways to respond with your life.
We invite you to join us for worship in the sanctuary on Sundays at 10:00 A.M. Sunday School is also back. During June and July, we are having a weekly discussion-oriented, intergenerational hour beginning at 9:00 A.M. in Martin Hall, primarily to get to know one another again. Several church members will be sharing personal life lessons throughout the summer, and you don’t want to miss any of them. The nursery will be open, so bring the whole family! We’re still following CDC guidelines. (Click below for our latest guidelines for inside worship).
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.
