What to Expect
Visiting a new church can make some people nervous because they just have no idea what it’s going to be like. We know that you may have several questions about what to expect when visiting Henderson, so we’ve tried to answer some of those potential questions below. Of course, if you have a question that we haven’t answered here, you can fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page, and we’ll get back with you promptly.
What kind of church are you?
We are a Southern Baptist church. If you’d like to read more about our ministry affiliations and partnerships, you can find them by clicking here.
What should I wear?
Man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart. - 1 Samuel 16:7
At Henderson, we try to be more concerned with the heart than with the outward appearance. Some men wear a coat and tie and some ladies wear dresses, while others wear blue jeans. Some people wear dress shoes, and others wear boots or tennis shoes. In short, feel free to dress however you feel comfortable!
What should I expect before, during, and after a service?
When you arrive at Henderson, you should expect to be greeted warmly. Once the service starts, we sing worshipful music and hear a relevant, Bible-saturated message. Our worship service lasts around an hour.
When the service is over, our folks are so friendly that they’ve been known to stick around and talk for a while. That’s a great time to get to know people!
Do you have any activities for students?
YES! We have a Sunday School class for youth (7th-12th grade) and college students.
And on Wednesday nights we have a Bible study for youth and college students. This is a time of fun, fellowship, and learning more about the Bible.
Our students also have fun activities throughout the year!
What is available for my children?
We know that your children are your priority, and we want you to know that they are our priority as well! During Sunday School, we have classes for all ages. During Sunday School and all worship services, we have excellent childcare volunteers who will provide a safe, fun environment for newborns to young toddlers.
We also have Children’s Church during our Sunday morning worship service! Children’s Church is for children aged 3 years old to 2nd grade. They join us in the sanctuary to participate in singing and then are dismissed to the children’s area where volunteers lead them in an age-appropriate time of Bible-learning, singing, and fun.
And on Wednesday nights we have children’s classes for all ages with age-appropriate, sound teaching and lots of fun!
Will I be expected to give?
Guests are welcome to give to help support the mission of our church, but you are by no means required or expected to give.
