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.
All Midtown small groups are currently on summer break. Check back in August to sign up for a group!
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 Youth Ministry at Midtown is all about seeing Gospel transformation happen in the lives of our students. We believe that God’s transforming work comes through Jesus Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and our participation in community.
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…
At Midtown Fellowship, we recognize that as we are transformed by the work of Jesus on our behalf we are compelled to become agents of this work in the lives of the people around us. We understand that loved people love people. The more we experience our own transformation, we cannot help but seek to encourage, support, and champion this process in the lives of the people around us. In this way, we seek to go on mission with Jesus for the sake of the world around us. We are compelled to act.
As we act, we are guided by our mission statement “To create a movement of gospel transformation through multiple congregations”. This statement guides our efforts in two specific ways as we seek to live missionally in the world around us.
We invite you to start living missionally. If you have questions about how to get involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are opportunities where we invite all of our people to live missionally – as youth, families and groups.
We commit to contribute financially to the organizations represented in our community reaching places we cannot reach without them.
