Our newest Missional Community, Friends of Scarritt Bennett will serve year-round to love Scarritt Bennett by helping to maintain and beautify its landscape and care for its building interiors. For more than three years now, this historic location near Vanderbilt University has served as the site for our Music Row location on Sunday mornings. The leadership team for this brand-new Missional Community is eager to launch and serve together. All are welcome!
All Christ Presbyterian members and Nashville friends are encouraged to dive in! Sign-up with Anna Woodyard to receive monthly email updates, and join the new Facebook Group for details, stories, pictures, encouragement and more.
