Cedar Grove Elementary School is a local Title 1 School serving families in Smyrna and Laverge. Over 1/2 of the student population is on free or reduced lunch and would be considered economically "At Risk." There are several schools like CGE in our area where local churches have opportunity to extend Gospel love.
The cafeteria and gymnasium at CGE were home to Grace Church on Sunday mornings for nearly 3 years. During that time, we worked hard to establish a relationship with the school's administration and faculty that was fueled with grace and love. At a result, throughout the year we serve CGE in various capacities from providing volunteers for fundraising festivals and events to doing random acts of kindness for the faculty and staff. If you would like to get involved in our ministry to CGE, please contact our Denise Molinsky. She is the deaconess in charge of facilitating ministry to the school.
Wherry Housing, formerly a military housing community in Smyrna, is a multicultural housing community located in Smyrna, TN. As home to a diverse collection of people and refugee population, they aim to serve the community through a variety of ministries catering to their unique and special needs. If you would like to serve in the Wherry Housing Community, check out their website or contact Lucas Hutchinson who is our deacon overseeing larger community outreach.
Nolensville Food Pantry is a ministry of Providence Baptist Church in Nolensville, TN that began in March of 2010 just before the major flood that impacted Middle Tennessee hit in May 2010. This catapulted this ministry into a local and regional reach over the past 10 years. NFP provides several services to 100's of families in the Nashville area throughout the year. In 2018, Grace Church partnered with the Nolensville Food Pantry to provide 150 Thanksgiving Boxes and Turkeys to families at Cedar Grove Elementary. We hope to do more ministry like this in the years to come.
