Donelson Church is celebrating 150 years as a transforming presence in our community. As we honor the past, cherish the present, and welcome the future, God has given us compelling clarity about our future as a disciple-making congregation. The Holy Spirit is alive and working at Donelson and we pray for an even greater measure of God’s Spirit for all of us. He is making all things new, and bringing hearts to life in Him.

EQUIP AND EMPOWER.
We will be a church that takes seriously Jesus’ call to make disciples who make disciples. We will equip all ages to trust and follow Jesus and live out his teachings in our everyday lives. We want to discern and honor the gifts of the Spirit in every member to help create a culture of ministry that starts here and moves us out into our community and world as we strive to make and nurture more disciples of Jesus.
