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!!
