Thanks for checking out Midtown Crieve Hall!! We are one of four Midtown congregations, and we meet in the south part of Nashville. Someone said recently, “I like that you put out some chairs, string up some lights, and meet in a school cafeteria.” There may be a little more to it that that, but to tell the truth we like that too. We’ve never owned a building, believing that church is not a building but the people of God. And you are welcome anytime.
We’d love to see you on a Sunday morning or at one of our other events. Check out the calendar and links on this page, or sign up for the eBulletin to see what’s going on!!
At Midtown, we believe that gathering people in small groups for the purpose of discipleship is the most important thing we can do as a church. Jesus doesn’t call us to be church-goers. He calls us to be the church. He calls us to be His disciples and then He calls us to disciple others. He calls us to grow, change, and mature in the context of intentional relationship with other disciples.
We look at how Jesus discipled to find a biblical model for small group ministry. He used Scripture, told stories, and shared his whole life with his disciples. Eventually releasing them into the world to make disciples thus beginning a ministry of multiplication.
Midtown Small Groups work in the same way. We focus on studying the Word, developing relationships with each other, and maturing in our faith until we are ready to make disciples ourselves. Group leaders are trained in a Biblical model of making disciples. As group participants experience spiritual growth, they become ready to make disciples and branch from their group to start a new one. Disciples become disciple-makers, and the ministry of Jesus continues to spread.
Groups will begin the week of September 10. Find a group near you and register today!
Contrary to popular belief, men thrive in relationships with other men. Whether it’s a men’s retreat, big cookout, or focused small group discussion – men are spiritually helped by being with brothers in Christ. We believe that men need to be known and they need to know others. That’s relational pattern that they bible calls us to. Take a look at some of the things that our men are doing this fall!Learn More
Our women will gather together at regular times throughout the year to learn, grow and share their lives with each other. Sometimes it’s a women’s retreat, or big event, other times it may be a focused small group discussion. In every instance, it’s about growing in faith and connecting with other Midtown women.Learn More

Kidtown classes are available for children ages 6 weeks through 5th grade. Classes are divided based on age and give children the ability to build their community while learning about the Lord. All of the classes learn the same story, but at a level of detail they are able to understand.
Located at the very end of the Kidtown hallway. Infants are given a snack of Pu s while the toddlers will receive Rice Chex. If your child has their own snack and you would prefer they not have the provided snack, let one of the nursery volunteers know!
The Blue Star class is a fun and exciting place. They begin their time on Sunday with free play in the gym, then move to the library for a time of singing, Bible lesson, crafts and games.
Both Orange Stars and Purple Stars begin the day in the service with their parents and will head to class at the break. One of the teachers will be in the back of the sanctuary to take your child to class while allowing you to interact with others in the service. Once in class, they will begin to memorize scripture while learning to apply Biblical stories to their lives. After the service, you can pick up your orange star in the first room on the left and purple star in the second room on the left when you head down the Kidtown hallway. Note – Purple stars do not have class on Communion Sunday.

The Midtown Youth team is focused on helping students mature in their faith through understanding and living out of their identity as disciples of Jesus. As Matt. 4:19 explains, a disciple is someone who…
There are many philosophies of mission in the body of Christ, and God works mightily in many ways to make His name known in the world. At Midtown Fellowship, we seek to follow Christ on mission in the world through the working out of our mission statement: “To create a movement of gospel transformation through multiple congregations.”
This statement guides our efforts in specific ways as we seek to serve the world around us:
Young Life Capernaum – One of our own folks, Suzanne Williams, helps lead this ministry. Young Life Capernaum is an outreach ministry with teenagers and young adults with disabilities. Ultimately, we let forgotten kids know that they are remembered by God. We remind them that they are masterpieces, not accidents. We give excluded kids a place of belonging in the body of Christ. We create a stage where they can surprise the world with all they have to offer and where they can give glory to the God in whose image they have been created. Please e-mail Suzanne if you’d like to hear more.
The Crieve Hall congregation meets at Granbery Elementary School in the Crieve Hall neighborhood.
