God Is Good: A Senior’s Reflection on the Class of 2020

“In a time when we cannot even gather together as one, I’d like to remind everyone that God is good. I’ve found this simple phrase especially poignant recently as I reflect on the cancellation of the remainder of my high school years, taking with it its important moments like prom, graduation, and my summer mission trips.” Read a letter to our church family from one our our seniors, Spencer Dunn.

Are You at a Higher Risk?

As you may know, Mayor Cooper has extended Nashville’s “safer-at-home” order until May 8. However, many surrounding areas are beginning to open up, leaving some to wonder is it safe for me to venture out more?
