Belmont UMC is a charter member of Nashville Organized for Action and Hope (NOAH), an interracial coalition of 56 faith congregations, labor unions, and organizations involved in social justice. On Sunday, October 30, NOAH will conduct “The People’s Platform: Our City, Our Time,” a review of achievements during the last year and a push for further action in meaningful ways. Mayor Megan Barry and other officials will be present to listen and to appreciate that NOAH is an organized force meriting their attention. The meeting will be from 3:00-4:30pm at Temple Baptist Church (3810 Kings Lane) in Nashville. All Belmonters are invited. If you would like to carpool, we will leave from the church parking lot at 2:15pm.
In December each year, the Children's Ministry has offered an Advent festival for families. This year's festivalh is scheduled for Sunday, December 4. Last year, the Youth Ministry provided a pizza supper (via donations) and Belmonters had craft booths.
In order to offer this ministry again this year, we need a coordinator. Susan Groseclose will be available to assist with ideas, possible leaders, and youth that will be available to help. The coordinator can use the basic plan mentioned above, and/or expand it to include a storytelling corner, music/carol sing, photo booth, mission project, making Advent devotional wreaths, revamp it completely to make it a new, inter-generational event.
