I am so excited to announce that Sacrament will be moving to 618 Ewing on June 17th.
Last month, we announced that Sacrament was looking for a new home as we have had to quickly transition from Sparkworks Union. We have found the right place, and it is beyond what we even hoped for!
Sacrament is excited to partner with the owners of 618 Ewing and Flavor Catering in an elegant, beautiful space with kids room, convenient parking, on-site storage, and the potential for midweek activities.
Set-up and tear down will be simplified as we hang speakers, projector and screen; we are also in the process of streamlining our sound system for plug-and-play capability. This place will give us room to grow, opportunities for outreach in an lively area accessible to most of Middle Tennessee.
What’s the Transition Timeline?
Here’s what the next few weeks look like for our community:
May 27th- Trinity Sunday @ Sparkworks with special guest Dr. Chris Green.
June 3rd- Second Sunday after Pentecost @ Sparkworks with special guest Pastor Deborah Jackson.
June 10th- Outdoor Gathering @ at nearby park (stay tuned!).
June 17th- First Sunday @ 618 Ewing
Where is this Place?
618 Ewing is easily accessible from East Nashville via Korean Veterans Boulevard. After crossing the bridge, turn left at the roundabout on to Lafayette, and then a right onto Ewing (at City Winery). The building is on your left, right next to Hot Diggety Dog. It is also easy to get to from Highways 65, 24, or 40.
Wait...That’s not East Nashville.
Well…you’re right! Those who have been around Sacrament for awhile know that we have always considered ourselves an East Nashville neighborhood church. So, the decision to move away from the Eastside has been tough.
When Ashley, Lucy and I moved to Nashville five years ago, we had the neighborhoods of East Nashville firmly in our sights. At the time, there were not many new churches in these neighborhoods. As the neighborhood has grown and changed, several young churches have moved in, which is awesome!
Also, over the past year, we have wondered if the Spirit was gently encouraging us to other possibilities. While we still have a core of people who live in East Nashville, since moving to Sparkworks, most of our new members do not live in East Nashville, with congregants driving from Germantown, Antioch, Madison, Hendersonville, Old Hickory, Murfreesboro, Springfield, and Greenbrier! We wonder if a more centralized location may be the right next step for us. And, this new location is just a few minutes from the old location on a Sunday morning.
We are excited to dig into the neighborhood of Pie Town, home of Nashville Rescue Mission and a wide range of socio-economic conditions. A creative neighborhood, Pie Town is also home to City Winery and Third Man Records and 618 Ewing is right at the intersection of the Pie Town, SoBro, and Gulch neighborhoods.
We will step into our new space on June 17th! Join us for our “Intro to Sacrament” lunch after service to learn more about the vision of Sacrament!
We are reminded once again of God’s great faithfulness to his people, and we are confident in His mission.
Grace and Peace,
