Crescent Hill Baptist Church believes that God loves all people without condition. Therefore, at CHBC you will find a diverse community of faith comprised of people of various races, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientation, and world-views. In 2013 the church clarified its relationship with LGBTQ individuals. The congregation overwhelmingly voted to be welcoming and affirming to LGBTQ individuals including granting ordination, hiring, or performing wedding ceremonies.

Our family of faith is grieving the death of Sasher Thaw. This five-year-old Karen girl was recently resettled in the United States. She died in a tragic accident Thursday evening. Although neither she nor her immediate family regularly gather with us at CHBC, our special relationship with the Karen community in Louisville makes them all a part of the CHBC community.
Visitation will be held in the CHBC Chapel on Monday, June 27, from 4pm - 9pm. The funeral service will take place at 10am on Tuesday, June 28, in the Chapel
If you would like to help cover the funeral costs and support the family during this difficult time, you can do so by making contributions and noting the gift is for the "Sasher Thaw Fund." Cash and check donations can be delivered to the church (2800 Frankfort Ave. Louisville, KY 40206). Or, you can contribute online at: http://chbcky.org/donate/.
