Where is the church located?

Our address is 112 Division Street, Smyrna, TN 37167. We are located just off the round-a-bout in historic uptown Smyrna, about six miles off the interstate.

What are LIFE Groups?

Growing closer as we prayerfully apply God’s Word. In the fall of 2005 we began LIFE Groups, our church’s small group ministry. Our elders made the decision to start LIFE Groups based upon a strong conviction that small groups are a biblical way for us to reach out, grow closer to the Lord and grow closer to one another. LIFE Groups center around applying God’s Word to daily life, service to others and building meaningful relationships. Weekly studies challenge us to consider how we can best live out our faith in today’s world.

Do you have a children’s ministry?

Absolutely! We have a vibrant Children’s Ministry we would be happy to tell you more about and share all the exciting things we offer our children.

Do you have a nursery?

We have two nurseries, one for infants and one for toddlers. Stop by the welcome center when you enter our foyer and we will be glad to escort you to the nursery. These rooms offer privacy for nursing mothers and are equipped with sound and video to view the worship service. The rooms are also equipped with toys and activities for the children.

What about the teens?

We got’em and we love’em! Rob Hartman serves as our Student Minister and would be pleased to meet you and your teen. SSM, Smyrna Student Ministry, is on Facebook and Twitter where you can find out the latest with Rob and the teens. We are a safe place… friends and caring adults that listen… biblical morality… A faith that last…. These are our values. Our Student Ministry is comprised of 100+ Middle and High School Students. SSM represents many of our local schools: public, private and home school. Over 20 adults are involved weekly and actively with our Student Ministry. Our three main goals are Discipleship, Service and Church Family. We want to graduate baptized, spirit filled disciples of Jesus who get their hands dirty helping others and feel a connection to the multi-generational church family.

I am attending college and looking for a church home. Do you have a place for College Students?

Yes, we do! We call it the HAVYN: Home Addressing Various Young Adult Needs. This special place, next door to the church, provides a hang-out for our college students to connect with others. It is equipped with a kitchen, men and women’s restrooms, entertainment center, game room and study room. Over half of believers who stop attending church, do so during their college years. That’s what makes our college ministry so important. In everything we do, we seek to enable our college age members to stay connected to the Lord, His church and one another throughout the early years of adulthood. This connection takes place through weekly gatherings, service opportunities, LIFE Group meetings, frequent contact and special events.

I am divorced. Do you minister to divorced people?

God hates divorce, but He loves divorced people and so do we! We believe the church to be a place for healing and reconciliation. We welcome you and will help you in recovery from your wounds. We will help you find your place in service here at the Smyrna Church of Christ because we all desire to give back and glorify Christ!

I am a senior and looking to connect with a church family. Do you have something for me?

“Let’s Go”, says Brother Tim Lavender our involvement and seniors minister. We love our seniors and invite you to be a part of our Young at Heart group. The Smyrna Church of Christ Young at Heart has been organized since 1995. The purpose of the group is to provide a way for those who are over 55 to get together and do a few things. Fellowship and love for one another is the top priority. We go somewhere or do something once each month and would be glad for other Christians to join us.

What is Peak of the Week?

We are opening our newly expanded and upgraded fellowship room and kitchen. On Wednesday nights at 6PM we come together for food and fellowship. Everyone pitches in a few dollars for a good meal prior to the start of our bible classes.

What is Cheap of the Week?

During a portion of the year when we do not offer Peak of the Week, we all go out to eat at one of the local fast food restaurants and continue to enjoy fellowship on Wednesday nights at 6:00PM.

How do the Women connect and serve?

Our women are on WINGS: Women in God’s Service. There is so much our ladies do; it would take a ream of paper to explain it all. Find all the ways SCC women support each other, the church and the community. Special classes, babysitting, prepared meals, retreats, Hospitali-TEA, wedding and baby showers, Canon Cancer Center and Women @ The Well are just a few ways they give glory to Christ.

How do the Men connect and serve?

We expect our men to get REAL!REAL Men of God is a ministry of the Smyrna Church of Christ that believes all men have a God given purpose and Godly legacy. Our mission is to build fully devoted followers of Christ by:

Reach up to God and out to others!
Equip through study for service!
Account to God and each other!
Lead our families and the church!

Men are wired (or taught to be wired) to be strong individuals but still need the partnership of other men. We are inspired by stories and movies where men rally together as a team, platoon, club, gang, etc. and accomplish something greater than they could as an individual. We believe this innate feeling of inspiration or awe is God-given. Christian men need Christian men to accomplish great things in life.
