While residing in Hazelwood, the Hendersons were members of Hazelwood Baptist Church where he served as a deacon, Sunday school superintendent, and director of Vacation Bible School and she served as Sunday school secretary, Awana leader, and music committee chairman. Mr. Henderson also designed and helped build the church’s activity building.
