Welcome! If this is your first time at Fellowship Nashville, we encourage you to take a few moments to read what you can expect when you visit us on a Sunday. We would also like to invite you to attend our introductory Explore Class, specifically designed for our guests. We hope to see you soon!
Your first visit
When do I arrive?
If you have children to check in at Fellowship Kids (Nursery - 6th grade), we recommended you arrive about 15 minutes prior to the start of the worship service. If not, plan to arrive 5-10 minutes before to explore, grab a cup of coffee and find a seat.
What do I wear?
Most of our members and regular attenders tend to dress casually. However, you are welcome to dress however you are most comfortable.
Where do I park?
If you are a first-time guest, expectant/new mom, or have a physical disability, we have special spots reserved upfront right next to the main entrance. Otherwise, feel free to park in our back-parking lot or on the surrounding streets (see map in sidebar).
What about my kids?
At Fellowship Nashville, our mission of making disciples extends to Fellowship Kids. We take our responsibility of raising a generation of Christ-followers seriously; this requires the parents, home, church, and Fellowship Kids volunteers to partner together in planting seeds of faith in the fertile soil of our kids’ hearts. Fellowship Kids desires to bless the parents who attend our weekend worship services with the assurance that their child is safe, well-loved, and growing in their knowledge of the Word.
Fellowship Kids consists of four classes: Nursery (ages six months +), Pre-K A and Pre-K B, and Elementary (1st-6th Grade). You can find further information about Fellowship Kids here. Older students typically attend a weekend worship service with their family.
How long is the service?
Our worship service lasts for approximately 65-75 minutes.
What are your worship services like?
While we all come from diverse backgrounds and circumstances, we believe the gospel is good news for everyone. In light of this, our Sunday gathering is designed to bring the gospel to bear on each and every one of us at the point of our need. All of our services are the same, and we follow a basic pattern of meeting together that is traced back to the early church. We sing, we pray, we teach from the Bible, and we respond by taking communion together. Our goal is not to manufacture a particular feeling or experience, but we pray that as we come face to face with the truth of who Jesus is and what He’s done, we will be deeply affected and our lives will be transformed for His glory and the good of our city.
Why do you teach through books of the Bible?
Because we believe that God has revealed His truth to us through His written Word, we regard the preaching and teaching of the Bible as a top priority and essential element of the church. We primarily preach through books of the Bible verse-by-verse because we believe the Bible is best understood when each verse is seen within its proper context, as the biblical authors intended. While we do occasionally step out of this rhythm and spend a season on a certain topic, theme or group of Scriptures, we believe that the verse-by-verse approach helps us to engage all of the Scriptures while preventing us from picking soap box topics or avoiding difficult passages.
