Project CURE

Volunteers from the Brookmeade Congregation regularly work the first Saturday of the month sorting and boxing medical supplies at the Nashville Project C.U.R.E. distribution center (2300 Clifton Avenue, phone: 837-7575). Brookmeaders are able to gain firsthand knowledge of the conditions in overseas hospitals and clinics through Raymond White’s assessment trips. We can see that lives are actually being improved and saved through the work of the Project C.U.R.E. team. We invite you to volunteer with us!

Room in the Inn

We host 7 to 10 men for four Sunday nights during the winter months, providing dinner, breakfast and a warm place to sleep. All costs and effort provided are volunteer contributions from the congregation. RITI has been a long term commitment for our congregation – spanning over 20 years.

Upper Room Fellowship

We gather with our sister Nashville UCC churches for quarterly potluck fellowship meetings which feature an inspirational program and rededication to having daily devotional time for inner healing and renewal. The Upper Room encourages a greater prayer life and daily communion with God through mediation upon scripture via the Upper Room daily devotional guide.
