What should I wear to Sunday services?

Dress in whatever is most comfortable to you. While some will be in coat-and-tie or dresses, others will be dressed in jeans or something more casual. It is what’s in the heart, not the outward appearance that matters most.

Where Should a Visitor Go, Once On Campus?

If you're at the Old Hickory Blvd location, find the Welcome Center located in the lobby just outside the main sanctuary. Our Hospitality Team will answer all your questions.  While there, don't forget to pick up your complimentary Visitor's Gift (you're gonna love it!).

We also have a Welcome Center at our Music Row location. Look for the sign when you enter the Wightman Chapel.

Do you have classes specifically for college students?

Our college students are welcome to connect in any of our CORE discipleship classes and/or serve on Sunday mornings. To meet for coffee, enjoy a home-cooked meal, visit with a family, or hear about local ministry partners on your college campus, contact Cammy Bethea. We have a Missional Community entirely devoted to welcoming our college students–and we’re so glad you’re here!

Do you have Sunday classes for Young Adults (married and/or single without kids)?

For an update on what’s happening with Young Adults, pick up an information card at the Welcome Center at either location. 

Do you have small groups?

We do have ongoing Small Groups (resources and sermon-based questions for which are posted here). Many attendees opt-in annually for our short-term “Connect Groups,” which meet for 6-8 weeks in homes and apartments around Nashville. Connect Groups provide an environment for members and friends to connect and consider sermon-based questions together. Often, Connect Groups will continue meeting as ongoing Small Groups.

Who can I contact about getting connected?

Email Jen Seger or Cammy Bethea–both enjoy assimilating new members and friends into the life of Christ Presbyterian.
