A Note From Pastor Bruce G. Chesser

Good morning! Welcome to First Baptist Hendersonville! My prayer is that the Holy Spirit would fill this place today and that we would all experience Him fully.

The next few weeks are some of the most important weeks of the entire year for our church ministry. On Memorial Day, over 500 students and leaders will leave for Student Camp in Missouri. Please pray for God’s protection as they travel and for God’s blessing for them during the week of camp. Pray that many young people will have their lives changed that week.

The following week will be Vacation Bible School. Without any doubt, VBS is the greatest evangelistic outreach of our church every single year. Pray that the Lord will bless the workers and the children this year.

This morning, we will study an amazing passage that deals with predictions and promises of what is to come in the days ahead.

Thank you for being here. It is a joy to be your pastor.

Sunday Connect

From Senior Associate Pastor, Bruce RaleY

Good morning! If this is your first time to attend First Baptist Hendersonville, we welcome you. We feel honored you have chosen to worship alongside our church family today.

Just a little information about FBCHville:

Pastor Chesser has served as Senior Pastor of our church for 15 years. He preaches through books of the Bible. We are presently studying the Gospel of Luke.

Our Bible study small groups are called Connect Groups. They also focus on studying books of the Bible. Most adult groups are presently in Genesis, with a new study in Acts beginning in June. There are about 90 Adult Connect Groups. The Welcome Desk in the main lobby can help point you to a great group this morning.

Our mission is Connecting Every Generation to God, Others, and Service. That is also our discipleship process, beginning with preschool and continuing to senior adults.

It is a joy to serve you.

Bruce Raley
