A NOTE FROM OUR PASTOR
Bruce G. Chesser
Good morning and welcome to the morning worship services of First Baptist Church of Hendersonville. There are four opportunities for you to participate in worship today. Two are led by our wonderful choir and orchestra and two are led by an outstanding team of musicians in the praise team/band of the contemporary services. Whichever service you attend, I pray that the Lord will richly bless you. By the way, there are Connect Groups (small group Bible Studies) available for every age group at 8:30, 9:45, and 11:00.
This morning we will take the Lord’s Supper together. The Lord’s Supper is one of two directives that the New Testament gives to churches to celebrate what the Lord has done for us. The first is baptism. Baptism is a public expression of the reality that Jesus lives inside of us and that He has saved us. Every follower of Jesus should be baptized after they trust Jesus as Lord of life. The second ordinance is the Lord’s Supper. It is an outward reminder of the price that Jesus paid for our sins. The bread represents His body that was broken for us. The juice represents His blood that was shed for us. Without these, we could not be saved.
This morning we will also study Philippians 2:14-18. The heart of the passage is a clarion call for us to “shine like stars” in a “crooked and perverted world.”
Thank you for being here today.

CONNECTING EVERY GENERATION, TO GOD, OTHERS & SERVICE
with Senior Associate Pastor, Bruce Raley
We have an opportunity to vote on the proposed 2021-22 budget ministry plan this morning. This plan was developed over several months with recommendations from various staff and ministry leaders being presented to the Stewardship Committee. This committee then compiles the requests and develops the budget based upon ministry plans and goals and anticipated offerings.
This year’s proposal is basically the same overall as the present year. However, with the elimination of our debt in 2021, we are able to redirect those funds to ministry.
Here are some of the significant increases overall:
• Missions. We will increase our giving to the Cooperative Program from $435,000 to $700,000. These funds are for the support of missionaries world-wide, ministry within Tennessee, theological education and more.
• Special Needs. With the development of our special needs ministry, funds are being provided for the weekday ministry, as well as Sunday and Wednesday.
• Church Plant. In just a few weeks, we will recommend Chris Mills to join as staff as Church Planter for One Community Church. This church plant in Hell’s Kitchen, NY will officially be a ministry of our church.
• Church Revitalization. We are presently in conversations with other churches that need a church partner to assist in revitalization. Funds are budgeted to help these churches regain their impact and influence in their communities.
It is a joy to serve you.
