Current Sermon Series

Soul Reset

Breakdown, Breakthrough, and the Journey to Wholeness

by Junius B. Dotson

The book blurb says, "Soul Reset is a call for the church and all of Jesus' disciples to reset and reorder their lives around spiritual practices, to learn to walk through our difficult seasons with our souls connected to the source of Living Water so that we don't burn out or break down. And if we do burn out or break down, we learn to lift one another up and point one another back to Jesus."

Pastor Darren will be sharing his study of Soul Reset in his sermons during the coming weeks (9:15am). 

The Builders/Sharers class will be studying the book during Sunday School (10:30am).


Join us at Connection UMC as we prepare to reset and reorder our lives.

Welcome Reception For Pastor Darren and Family

Caring Partners

Each month a group of Connection UMC family ministers to our homebound.  The ministry began several years ago then added the delivery of gift bags during COVID.  Each bag is filled with small snacks, puzzles and other items that help them connect to our Lord and to us.  As our coordinator has said, "An effort by all, to pass on love".  We thank all of you for reaching out to our homebound.

2022 Nashville Pride Festival 

We joined with 7 other churches at the 2022 Nashville Pride Festival to offer communion to the attendees, a reminder that God loves each of them.  The group gave away 500 drink mixes and maps that hi-lighted churches that would welcome them with open arms.
