The Church will supply the turkeys and we encourage everyone to bring their favorite side dish, salad or dessert. It has always turned out to be a banquet to remember. ​ We find that by sharing this bountiful feast, it helps us remember and be thankful for that which the Lord provides for us.

The blessing will be said and the food served immediately after church on Sunday, November 12th in the Fellowship Hall.
Feel free to bring friends, neighbors, relatives or any other guests. This is a community event of thanksgiving.

Tom & Susan Gripka Request The Pleasure of Your Presence

A Huge Praise
Is In Order!!

It Will Soon Be  Time For Wonderful Food, Terrific Fellowship, and Humble Thankfulness at Henly Baptist Church.

The call went out for volunteers to help fill boxes for the Christmas Child project and Henly Baptist Church members responded as you would expect.

Treva sent me a text today saying that all the boxes were filled today and THE JOB IS DONE !!

A HUGE thank you goes out to Darlene Jones, Bob & Darlene Woods, Tricia Timmins and her brother
Pat, Tricia's sister Chole and her husband Ed and Tricia's brother Ed and his wife Cindy.

Treva says it was a blessed time of sharing for all involved.  The product of their labors, the boxes, will be on display in the sanctuary.

Internet equipment and access for Henly Baptist Church is provided by a generous donation from Mike Montz and his company Superwire.

Tom & Susan moved to Texas two years and have been members of HBC ever since and have taken an active role in the support of our church

You may not know that their son Israel Nash is an internationally known musician and songwriter and he will be performing during the celebration.  Two songs he will be playing will be "Time In A Bottle" which was sung at Tom & Susan's wedding and a new original piece of his called "Rolling On" from his not yet released album "Lifted"

Henly Baptist Church is over 100 years old and has been in the same building for nearly 7 decades.

If you're looking for cross-generational opportunities for worship and fellowship in a friendly and welcoming Texas Hill Country setting, Henly Baptist Church is the place for you!

Our congregation shares a special relationship uncharacteristic of many churches.  We are a 'come as you are' group with diverse backgrounds, personalities and life experiences.  Our age ranges span the horizon from childhood to late adulthood, but we function as a family and all are important. We have made the discovery that generational relationships add perspective and a positive balance that supports quality of life issues. 

We believe that building relationships is a reflection of God's love and as a church our goals are 1) to promote an awareness of man's need for relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ, 2) to provide an environment for worship and fellowship designed to promote Christian growth and development, and 3) to be a spiritual lighthouse in the community through the practice of Christ’s teachings, evangelism, outreach and social and benevolent ministries.

One of our annual traditions at Henly Baptist Church is to hold a celebration luncheon just before thanksgiving.
