Henderson Hills Baptist Church Student Ministry exists to bring glory to God by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with our students and by leading them to walk in Christ-centered community. We seek to partner with parents as we serve, love, and teach our students to cherish the local church while pursuing personal holiness.
Our desire is for this blog to serve in partnership with our ministry; to aid in walking alongside our students as they go deeper into the lessons they learn on Wednesdays and Sundays, and to answer any remaining questions. We hope this blog will be two-fold in serving our students. First, that it will guide in preparing hearts and minds for the times we are gathered as the church and, second, that it will serve in fueling us during the times we are spread throughout our schools and communities.

Here we herald the fulfillment of the promises and the Messiah in the dawning of Christ's ministry in Luke 3.

Here we see a pause in the action as we are given a foreshadowing of the coming redemption through the remembrance of God's judgement and a call to repentance.
This was not an easy decision and I want you to know that we did not make it lightly. It is only after relentless praying and seeking the Lord's will that we have come to the decision to move our family across the country.
