How We Started

In the early 1950s, the community known as Donelson experienced a rise in new home development.  As hundreds of new homes rose and families began to move into the area, a group of individuals gathered together in the common mission to meet the ever-growing needs of young families spiritually and emotionally.   Their common mission grew into Donelson Heights UMC; a community of faith committed to growing individuals in their sacred worth of God so that they might go into the world nurturing others. 


Continuing the Mission

The mission of providing a strong foundation of faith for individuals continues to be our calling today.  We know that this journey of life and faith grows stronger when we come together in community.  We seek to nurture each generation within their unique challenges, questions, and socioeconomic status.  Our community continues to evolve and we too are committed to evolving to meet the needs of our world.
