Glover wrote the hit country songs, "Hard to Love" by Lee Brice and "Love Don't Run" by Steve Holy along with numerous hits in Christian music including “Flawless” and “Greater” by MercyMe, “Write Your Story” by Francesca Battistelli, and Mandisa’s songs ”Stronger" and “Overcomer,” the latter of which won a Grammy award.
Additionally, Sky Studios will be on hand for a musical petting zoo, there will be inflatables and food trucks! Ride your bikes, bring your hammocks and chairs and money for the delicious eats from our local food trucks!
Mark your calendars now for our 3rd Annual Music in the Grove concert on September 4th!
Springapalooza returns on May 7th! Here’s how the day will play out: a short worship service will begin at 10 a.m. (similar to our group chapel atmosphere). Our talented Music Director Nate Strasser and his team will offer more of the same fantastic music we have each Sunday at church. After the worship, the festival begins! We’ll have a blessing of the bikes and trikes, a bounce house, water slides, games, and kiddie pools; plus, the church and preschool will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers. You can’t beat that for a Sunday morning and lunch!
Here’s what we are asking of you: Please bring your favorite side dish or dessert to share (remember we are a peanut and tree nut-free school) and picnic blanket and lawn chairs to enjoy the day. Please come dressed casually and have your children wear or bring their swimsuits for water fun. And please bring your bikes, trikes, or other wheeled vehicles to be blessed.
So that we have plenty of food, please use the following link to let us know that you are coming: https://goo.gl/F0E3MZ.
People recover from addiction every day. Families are rebuilt. Lives are restored. But recovery rarely happens in a vacuum. It takes a community willing to stand beside the person, to support them, and to help lead them out of the darkness.
The State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services has launched an exciting, new mission partnering with faith-based communities across the state. Together, we are building a recovery network comprised of compassionate and concerned citizens who are reaching out to those struggling with addictions and connecting them to vital substance abuse services. Your congregation can join this effort.
- Learn about the disease of addiction and understand what recovery is and how both affect the community and how it may be affecting members of your congregation.
- Have the opportunity apply as a Certified Recovery Church OR Faith-Based Organization in the State of Tennessee.
- Receive a digital toolkit in advance that will start to provide information and resources in advance of the meeting.
- Learn about resources in the region and their own community to support their congregation and community members struggling with addiction.
- Learn about Substance Abuse Prevention Coalitions and their work in the communities in Tennessee and how congregations can support coalition’s efforts to prevent substance abuse and what strategies address the impact on the region.
