Belmonters invited to NOAH meeting

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.

All Belmonters are invited.  If you would like to carpool, we will leave from the church parking lot at 2:15pm. 


Advent Festival coordinator needed!

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.

If you are interested in coordinating this ministry event, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as soon as possible.

"Created by God" to be offered in November

November 3–5, Belmont UMC will partner with Calvary UMC and Belle Meade UMC to offer 5th and 6th-graders and their  families, the  faith, and human sexuality class, Created by God. The class will be held at Calvary UMC.

Created by God celebrates that we are created, male and female, by a loving, creating God. Large group sessions present a faith-based perspective of the changes tweens experience during puberty, male and female reproductive systems, and the ways we care and use our sexuality as a gift from God. The tweens will be assigned to small groups with a male and female leader for more in-depth conversation.

The parent session on Thursday evening provides detailed information about the weekend. The joint session on Saturday affirms the partnership between the church and families.

The cost is $25. It is required that tweens attend all sessions and at least one parent attends the Thursday and Saturday afternoon session.
