Staying Connected while Staying at Home

Along with staying safe and healthy, we hope everyone will reach out within the community to offer help and support as you are able. Clergy, staff, parish leaders, and volunteers will be calling in the coming days to check in and stay connected. Meanwhile, please contact us if you or anyone you know is in need.

We'd also love to hear from you if you want to help with meeting some of those needs. Contact Martha Rodes, Director of Lay Ministry Engagement, at 615-385-2150 x 249 or

Ways to Stay Connected

Our hope is that these resources help our church family stay rooted in the gospel during this time when we cannot meet together in person. If you have questions about any of the resources below, please contact us at

Online Noonday Prayers

Pray with us from your homes each week at noon starting Thursday, March 19.  Follow this link to YouTube, where we'll be connecting and praying with you by video.

Bible Reading Plan

Our Bible Reading Plan organizes the lectionary into a pattern of daily readings. By following along with the church calendar, each of these readings points to some aspect of Christ's life, death, and resurrection. Our plan provides a way for parishioners to deepen their knowledge of the Bible, prepare for Sunday worship, and become more familiar with the enduring themes of the church calendar.

Find the daily readings on our website.

To receive a weekly email, join the Bible Reading Plan group in Realm or contact Rebecca Teel (615-385-2150 x 213 or

Dana Sherrard's Bible Study

Galatians and Freedom in the New Covenant

Led by church member Dana Sherrard

January 28 - March 31 | 10:00 - 10:50am in Johnson Hall (downstairs)

(Please note: There is no class on Feb. 11 or Mar. 17)

One of the blessings of the New Covenant is the freedom that comes from our position in Christ as believers.  But in today’s performance driven world, many of us never break free of the bondage of working and striving to please God and earn His acceptance. And this working and striving affects all areas in our lives whether we realize it or not. God knows and understands this and speaks to us through Paul in this exciting and liberating letter.

Weather Plan: If Metro Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather, this class will not meet.  Otherwise, class goes on as scheduled. Always call the church office with questions at 615-385-2150.

Audio recordings of Dana's classes can be found here.



The Sunday Gospel

Led by the Rev. Roger Senechal

Weekly | Dandridge A & B (upstairs)

Class is offered at two times: 11:00am – 12:00pm or 7:00 - 8:00pm

This class will take a look at the gospel passage assigned to the upcoming Sunday. In this way, participants are better prepared to inwardly digest and to understand the meaning of the gospel reading before coming to church on Sunday. What a helpful way to prepare oneself for worship!

Questions? Contact the Rev. Roger Senechal |

Thursday Men's Bible Study

Led by the Rev. Richard Kew

Weekly | 7:30 - 8:30am in the Library

Every Thursday morning following the Eucharist a group of men gather in the Library around the text of Scripture. We learn, we enjoy each other's company, we grow in faith. Bring your Bible, your brain, and your curiosity. Men of all ages and at all stages in the Christian faith are invited to give us a try.

Note: On the First Thurday of the month, this group meets with a larger group of men in the church for the Men's Breakfast & Bible Study (see next).
