Local Mission Efforts
Nashville Inner City MinistryMondays @ 7pm, Harpeth Hills
Each week during the school year, 80-100 children from the inner city of Nashville come to our building from 7-8pm. Volunteers from Harpeth Hills feed them supper, teach them a simple Bible lesson, help develop their talents, and shower them love and encouragement. Volunteers are needed each week in order to make this ministry a success. There many opportunities for service including providing/helping prepare meals, teaching or assisting in classrooms, or becoming a prayer warrior for Inner City.

Room In The InnThursdays @6pm, Harpeth Hills
Every year during the winter season, Harpeth Hills opens its doors to provide shelter to our neighbors suffering from homelessness. Each week a team of volunteers will host 14-16 homeless guests for a single night. On Thursday evenings we serve dinner, and provide a safe place to stay for the night. Then on Friday mornings we offer a hot breakfast and a sack lunch for the day ahead. Mingling with our guests during mealtime is a true blessing. We learn their stories and find that we are not so different. All broken, loved by a merciful God.Volunteer

Tennessee Prison Ministry136 Raines Ave in Nashville
We share the love and truth of Jesus by bringing freedom and hope to prisoners and their families. The ministry is comprised of over 400 volunteers from Tennessee conducting worship services, Bible classes, and New Life Behavior classes. We operate transitional houses in Nashville, providing the released offender with support, recovery classes, and mentoring as they make the transition from incarceration to independence. We also operate a summer camp for children of the incarcerated and other at-risk youth.
