Our bimonthly email has all the latest happenings at Crieve Hall and the Midtown movement.
Each Sunday we are hosting one worship service at 8am at Granny White. The service is family friendly so children of all ages are welcome. We have 55 seats available each Sunday. Registration for each Sunday opens at 9am on Tuesday. If the service is full, please sign up on the waitlist in the event there are cancellations for that service.
We will be live streaming the service so you should expect some extra movement and minor distractions.
Would you considering inviting some friends, neighbors, other families or those you are quarantining with to worship with you on your back porch, in your driveway or even your living room?
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!!

Yes, now. Even in a global pandemic. We believe that consistent, intimate gatherings proclaiming the truth of the Gospel as it relates to our lives are the best environment to help us mature emotionally, spiritually, relationally and socially. We believe we need each other. Discipleship Groups are gatherings of 4-16 people, virtually or in-person, who are committed as a community to building relationships that support maturing in Christ together. Discipleship Groups use intentionally-designed discussion that is centered on God’s word and facilitated by a trained leader. 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.
Scripture from the current sermon series
We deeply value the students of Midtown and desire to minister to them in creative ways during this season. As we enter into the fall, we believe the next step for the Youth Ministry is for our small groups to gather in person on Sunday evenings. These gatherings will be outdoor, socially distanced small groups hosted by Youth families. We are excited to offer a space for weekly fellowship, worship, and time in God’s Word together! Stay tuned for more information.

We also want to create spaces for students and their family members to gather together this fall! We will be hosting three socially distanced Family Fellowship Nights this semester (8/30, 10/25, 12/6). These gatherings will be a great opportunity for families to engage with each other while also getting to safely interact with other Youth families! The theme for each Family Fellowship Night will be announced as we get closer to the date.
Please reach out to Shelby Walker for middle school or Taylor Kelly for high school with any questions about our fall program.

We love your children and want to continue to minister to them this fall. Because of the difficulty of regulating social distancing among children, we WILL NOT be offering Kidtown at any live service.
Midtown Home Church is a great option for families. You can host a Midtown Home Church by inviting friends, other families, neighbors or people you’ve been quarantining with to join you in watching the worship service. We will provide with a host kit and a Kidtown kit that include a Bible story book and activities for the kids in your Home Church. Get more details about Midtown Home Church.
Jen Jackson, our Kidtown Director, has been hosting Zoom calls and doing video lessons and worship. Shoot her an email if you want to get your kids connected.
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.
