Smyrna First United Methodist Church is centered upon the life of Christ, accepting and loving all persons and living out the life of Christ in the community/world.

We are a dynamic, growing faith community in Smyrna, TN about 20 miles southeast of Nashville.  Our community has experienced much growth and change over the past 20 years.  In light of that, Smyrna First strives to be faithful to the great heritage of our church, yet also strives to meet the needs of an ever changing society.  Great things have happened here, and we believe greater things are yet to come.  One thing we know... the Spirit of God is at work here--Come join us!!

 Organ Fund Update

We have been so blessed and are very grateful with the donations that have been given to the organ campaign to date. Over the course of a year, our congregation funded nine out of the 12 payments needed for this project.  Our goal is still to self fund the organ and to do this, we need $1,854.02.  This will reimburse the church for the additional cash outlay used to pay off this debt.  Please consider making an additional contribution to help replenish the general fund.  In writing a check, please note in the memo line "Organ campaign".  Again, thank you for your support.

Organ committee:  Mary Kay Dempsey, Holly Sanders, Bobby Medlen, Kat Ray, Loyd Mabry
