Belle Meade United Methodist Church is rolling into the New Year with an added worship service aimed at new churchgoers and
longtime church members, alike.
The new Sunday service is theme-based, and will create a casual worship atmosphere, which includes the use of popular music,
drama, along with video and film clips, to deliver God’s message. Featuring live music from a full band, the new service adds another
exciting dimension to Belle Meade UMC’s ministry.
“Years from now, when the chapter of this period in church history is written, scholars will say that we were in the ‘Second
Reformation’”, explains Pastor Michael O’Bannon. “Many of the new elements of our mission and ministry have been attempts to keep
the church relevant, alive and active; as it seeks to minister in a time when church, values, and spirituality are all being redefined.
Beginning February 4, the service will take place at 11:05am each Sunday in White’s Chapel, located in the west end of the Belle
Meade UMC complex. In addition to the new service, the church continues its traditional services in the larger sanctuary at 8:30am
and 11:00am, plus the highly successful Praise service at 8:45am in White’s Chapel.
The addition of the fourth Sunday morning worship service is a strong indication of Belle Meade UMC’s growth in recent years. With
several Sunday school classes for adults to choose from, opportunities for young people have expanded significantly, as well. “Youth
Vision”, is an innovative program aimed at those in grades 7-12, and just as popular is “The Way”, a fresh approach for grades K-6.
Both programs are in their second year.
Belle Meade United Methodist Church is located at 121 Davidson Rd. in Nashville. For additional information, please phone (615)
