Let's celebrate Ken! Retirement reception June 11

After 43 years in ministry and 10 years of dedicated service to Belmont UMC, Ken Edwards is retiring at the end of June. Ken has touched so many lives at Belmont UMC, and his many contributions through the years cannot be measured. All are invited to celebrate Ken by attending a reception in his honor on Sunday, June 11, from 1:00–3:00pm in the Community Center.

In addition to the reception, we want to honor Ken with a book of notes, cards, and photos from Belmonters. If you would like to contribute to this, please mail or email your notes, cards, and photos to Angie Slade ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

2017 Belmont ESL writers showcase

Each week over 100 students from all over the world come to learn English at Belmont UMC.  They come from many different countries and cultures, speak many different languages, but all have a story to tell.

Can you imagine moving to another country and dealing with a new culture and language?  Now imagine trying to write a story in that new language.  For the past three months, Belmont’s ESL students have been doing just that.

On Thursday, April 27, you are invited to come and listen as some of these wonderful stories are read by Belmonters and our students are recognized for their efforts. Make plans to join Belmont’s ESL students, their families, and members of the Nashville community at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Center us as we encourage, recognize, and celebrate Nashville’s multicultural population. Light refreshments will be served.

Assessing Belmont UMC’s spiritual well-being

As Belmont UMC lives out its mission of “growing in love of God and neighbor,” all Belmont UMC adults will have the opportunity and are encouraged to participate in an adult assessment of Belmont UMC’s spiritual well-being, April 23 - May 7. Hard copies of the assessment form, with time allotted to fill it out, will be available to everyone through Belmont’s councils and committees, Sunday school classes, and small groups. It is also available online. Teams of visitors will also provide the opportunity for homebound members to participate. By filling out the Assessment of Belmont UMC’s Spiritual Well-Being form, Belmont UMC adults will be enabling the leadership of our church to plan and provide ministries and activities that will enrich their spiritual needs. The assessment is being funded by a grant from Belmont UMC’s Trust Fund and will be available during late April and early May. Plan now to be part of the formation of Belmont’s future with adult ministry!
