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!
Our congregants greet one another with this exhortation every week, so it seems like an appropriate welcome to our church. First Presbyterian Church is a diverse group of people who enjoy meeting together to share our lives, grow in faith, and serve others.
First Presbyterian has served the Hendersonville community since 1869, so we are celebrating our sesquicentennial this year. We believe God gives each person spiritual gifts to benefit the church body, and we try to provide a place where you can belong and grow in your faith in Jesus Christ as you discover your gifts and how to use them for others.
Our church is not so small that you’ll feel self-conscious if you want to visit, and it’s not so large that you’ll get lost in a crowd. We hope newcomers will feel at ease as they worship, and that they’ll meet a few of our members with each visit. We suspect that before long you’ll feel right at home as a valued member of our church family.
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.
