Making a Global Impact
We seek to connect every generation to God, others and service. We begin here at home in our community, in our state, in our country. And we work to spread the good news of Jesus around the world.

Sewing for the Nations
Are you interested in putting your sewing skills to use for those in need? Our group makes simple clothing – dresses, shorts, skirts and shirts for children in Kenya. We also make feminine hygiene kits for the girls. Please contact us to learn more about our projects and a way that you can be a part. We have all the supplies and will even be happy to help you learn to sew if you are a beginner.
A disaster hits suddenly and this provides the opportunity for immediate ministry. There seems to be no area of mission action that requires more rapid response than during times of disaster. Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is Christian love in action, meeting urgent needs of humanity, in a crisis situation. First Baptist Hendersonville, in partnership with the Tennessee Baptist Convention, is part of this ministry. Volunteers from Tennessee have responded to well over 50 national and international disasters. We contribute manpower, physical resources, financial assistance, and hope to disaster areas worldwide.
Training for the Disaster relief team is scheduled for Feb. 8, 2020.
Operation Christmas Child
Be the hands and feet of Jesus during the holiday season, by packing a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. The Operation Christmas Child boxes are delivered to so many remote places, sharing joy and the love of Christ. You can pick up and drop off boxes each fall at First Baptist. If you wish to just donate money for a box, you can click the button below.

Women's Missionary Union (WMU)
Founded in 1888, the Woman’s Missionary Union is an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention. WMU seeks to equip adults, youth, children and preschoolers with mission education and with guidance toward a missional lifestyle. The focus of WMU is to:
- Pray for and give to missions
- Participate in missions work
- Learn about missions
- Develop Spiritually toward a missions lifestyle
- Work in conjunction with the local church and denomination
Mission education and training at FBCH is directed by the age level and information can be found in the Preschool, Children, and Youth ministries.
It is this focus to lead others to develop a missions lifestyle that drives First Baptist Women on Mission (WOM). The women of First Baptist who comprise our three WOM groups are dedicated to meeting spiritual and physical needs across the street and around the world. In addition to carrying out active mission projects, each of these groups work to help educate our church in the importance of supporting Missions and our missionaries working through the International Board and the North American Mission Board, as well as those sent by First Baptist. We do this through Prayer and Financial Support.
Please join one of the following WOM groups as we work, learn, pray and fellowship together.
