Who Are We?

We exist to engage the whole person with the whole Gospel: Anywhere, Anytime, with Anybody.

For Student Ministry, this means prayerfully pointing students toward Jesus so that lives are changed and eternities saved.  A changed life through following Jesus essentially involves three compulsions.

To Believe:

.. that the Bible is our source for knowledge and therefore reveals the true story of God and humanity. Subsequently, who Jesus is and why we are naturally lost, but through the death and resurrection of Jesus, made God’s children and restored from pain to purpose.

To Belong:

..to a community who consistently and lovingly point one another toward alignment with what we believe.  This looks like encouragement, accountability, honesty, and enjoyment.

To Become:

.. a committed follower of Jesus in His ways and mission.  This means taking the Good News of Jesus to the lost and searching in their homes, neighborhoods, schools, teams, and clubs; through love, sacrifice, prayer, and proclamation of the Gospel message.

First Time Guest?

We are thrilled you are considering joining our church family!  When you arrive, be sure to find our “New Here, Stop Here” table to get connected with a group, find your friends, and grab some snacks.  We will have games before worship, dive into God’s Word, and apply what we are learning through table-based small-group discussion.

Connect Groups

Small groups are an incredibly versatile way to reach Nolensville with the Gospel, and even empower students to lead the charge.  We hope to effectively do both with this strategy.  These groups are led by students, who are trained by adults, and pop-up where there is the opportunity of time and people hungry for Gospel-centered friendships.  Many churches ask you to make the first move by visiting; we want to be a church that takes the first step toward you.

Our current Connect Group Offerings:

@ E&B Coffee  |  Saturday’s 9:30 am (HS Girls)

@ TCAN  |  Saturday’s 9:00 – 10:30 am (MS Guys)
