About Us

Thanks for checking out Midtown Crieve Hall! We are one of four Midtown congregations, and we meet in the south part of Nashville. A visitor 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 believe 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!!

Why Join a Discipleship Group?

Discipleship Groups are relational gatherings of 4-16 people who are committed as a community to maturing in Christ together.  Discipleship Groups use intentionally-designed discussion that is centered on God’s word and facilitated by a trained leader as a building block toward maturity. We believe that consistent, intimate gatherings proclaiming the truth of the Gospel as it relates to our lives are the best environment to help people mature emotionally, spiritually, relationally and socially. The resulting community develops believers who are following Jesus and being changed by him, while equipping them to bring his message of Good News into their homes, workplaces, schools and neighborhoods.

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 is…

  • following Jesus
  • being changed by Jesus
  • on mission with Jesus

Youth Group, for middle and high school students, meets on Sundays from 4:30-6:30pm at Midtown Granny White. During the first hour of the evening, students get to know each other as they hang out, play games or worship together. The second half of the evening is spent in discipleship groups (i.e. small groups) split up by grade and gender. In these groups, volunteer leaders facilitate student engagement in a passage from the Bible and discussion with each other about how it plays out in their lives.

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.

Red Stars (newborn-2.5 years old):

This class is located at the very end of the Kidtown hallway. Infants are given a snack of Puffs, 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!

Blue Stars (2.5-4.5 years old):

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.

Orange Stars (4.5 years- Kindergarten), Yellow Stars (1st-2nd grade) & Purple Stars (3rd-5th grade):

Both Orange Stars and Yellow/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 Yellow/Purple Star in the second room on the left when you head down the Kidtown hallway. Note – Yellow/Purple Stars do not have class on Communion Sunday.

Current Volunteer Schedule

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.

  1. Gospel Transformation: We believe it is a primary responsibility of the church to “equip the saints for works of ministry” (Ephesians 4). That means we focus much of our energy on training our people to understand who they are, what they have, and how to leverage all of that in order to impact the places where God has specifically called them.
  2. Multiple Congregations: We believe God has called us as congregations to the neighborhoods and communities, where we meet. We desire to step into these areas not only to serve as a place for spiritual growth but for emotional and physical growth as well. It’s a tangible place for us to be the physical representation of our God to individuals in these communities.

We invite you to start living missionally. If you have questions about how to get involved please email chserves@midtownfellowship.org.



These are opportunities where we invite all of our people to live missionally – as youth, families and groups.

  • Kidtown – Kidtown volunteers serve the youngest in our community by sharing the gospel and loving them each week during the service. We have a hope that 100% of our congregation would serve in Kidtown each year. Email Jen Jackson to learn how to serve in Kidtown.
  • Giving – Read more about why we give and how giving is an act of mission.
  • Blessing Bags – We will assemble bags of food for 190 children in need at Granbery, Crieve Hall and Binkley Elementary Schools. Each bag contains enough food to help our young friends thrive during fall, Christmas and spring break.



We commit to contribute financially to the organizations represented in our community reaching places we cannot reach without them.

  • Young Life Capernaum – Suzanne Williams, a Crieve Haller, helps lead Young Life Capernaum, an outreach ministry for teenagers and young adults with disabilities. Please email Suzanne if you would like to hear more.
  • Servant Group International – To help serve immigrants in Nashville from the Middle East, especially Iraq and Syria, Servant Group International runs several volunteer programs to help them adjust, make friends and learn of the hope and love of Christ. If you would like to know more or to serve with us, visit the Servant Group Nashville website or email Colleen McGarry.
