Forwarding page for our information on selecting a new pastor to replace Todd Linn.
HFBC is in transition! God is at work in our church, leading our pastor to step aside from pastoring after 17 years to begin a teaching & writing ministry. We’ve created this page to keep you updated on the latest happenings and to provide a way for you to pray and give input as we move forward. God is in control!
Phase I – Prayer and Listening
The most important work we’ll do during this transition is pray! On September 8th our pastor launched our “52-Days of Prayer,” challenging us to pray every day for the church family. We’ve created a daily prayer guide with Scripture references and prayer prompts. You can either download the prayer guide or pick one up in the church office.
We also want to be sure every member is heard! If you have a suggestion or comment that you would like to provide during this transition time, just fill in the helpful form at the bottom of the page.
Phase II – Pastor Search
Member’s Meeting September 8, 2019
Our church bylaws specify that the deacon body is responsible for seeking an interim (or transitional) pastor. This Tuesday, September 10, a subgroup of six deacons will be formed to begin searching for an interim pastor.
Interim Pastor Search Team, September 10, 2019
According to our by-laws the deacons appointed an interim pastor search team consisting of the following men:
John Kloke, current deacon chair, Jim Bryan, on-coming deacon chair, Russell Sights, Kevin Patton, Ben Patterson, Rich Stratton, staff liaison.
Be in prayer for these men as they begin the process of searching for our interim pastor.
Next update – Member’s Meeting September 29th at 6PM.
As we move forward, we have a unique opportunity to evaluate the various aspects of church life. Let us share together as we pray and dream about the future of Henderson’s First Baptist Church! Your comments will automatically be submitted to the staff and deacons for further discussion.
“Prayer is the greatest of all forces, because it honors God and brings Him into active aid” – E. M. Bounds

Pray and Go Community Outreach
We gather at the church and disperse to pray for our community in groups of 2-3. Each group is assigned a street and houses within our community. You will walk along the street, praying for each house. We have door hangers available and one person places a door hanger on the home to let the residents know that we have prayed.
For those who are not up for the walking, we recommend praying during this time from home or joining with others at the church to pray for the teams going out.
Meeting time and location:
Sunday, September 22, 6-7PM: Meet at church

Agents of the Apocalypse (David Jeremiah Study)
Hispanic Worship Center
Are we living in the end times? This study explores the book of Revelation through the lens of its major players & opens each chapter with a Biblically engaging dramatization that will bring prophecies to life as never before with David Jeremiah. He explores some of Revelation’s most cryptic passages, explaining how to interpret them & how they apply to the forces at play in the world today. Join Joel Stocking and discover the events that will precipitate earth’s final days.
Join this group of seasoned prayer warriors as they spend time in prayer for the ministries of our church, staff, missional partners, the sick, & the lost of our community. Each week’s prayer time is followed by a short time of Bible study. Facilitated by Mary Lois Judy and other leaders.

Henderson’s First Baptist Church!
Our new member class and luncheon is designed to help you joyfully engage in the mission of the church. During this class we will discuss the blessings and responsibilities of church membership. We will help you identify your spiritual gifts, find a Sunday School class that is right for you, and explore options that will allow you to experience the blessings of serving in the church. “First Steps” is your opportunity to get plugged in.
Be sure to pick up your First Steps Devotional at the Connection Center or church office and begin working on it before the day of the class.
The devotional is also available online HERE.
You can also complete the Discover Your Design Assessment prior to attending the new member luncheon. You can download the assessment HERE.
We’re looking forward to the opportunity to get better acquainted with you and your family!
Whoo-hoo! Vacation Bible School is fast approaching and everyone at HFBC is working to make this the best VBS yet!
In The Wild is our theme this year and we’re going to introduce your child to the wild animal kingdom by seeking out exotic creatures like elephants and egrets, polar bears and penguins, cockatoos and crocodiles. But most importantly we’re going to introduce your kids to the greatest kingdom of all… the kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Our theme verse this year is from John 20:31 that says: “But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” And with that we’ll be exploring all kind of snapshots of Jesus in Scripture.
So strap on your camera and buckle your seatbelt as we “Zoom in and Focus on Jesus!”
VBS is June 10-14th from 9am-Noon and is open to children having completed Pre-Kindergarten – the 5th Grade!
