SUNDAYS AT SOUTHPOINTE
SUNDAYS | 9:00 & 10:45AM
COMMUNION FIRST SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH
7227 Haley Industrial Dr.
Nolensville, TN 37135
Directions

Each week we expect people who attend to experience an engaging, gospel-centered worship service.

You are free to come as you are – we believe that God works on the you that really is and not the best version of you or the you that you wish you were. We like to say that Southpointe is a perfect place for imperfect people (and that starts with us).  

We want to follow the model of Jesus in Mark 2:17, “And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

We are ordinary people. We are families without children, families expecting children, families with many children, and families whose children have left the home. We are single men and women. We are single moms. We are single dads. And we’ve realized that without a community of people that know you – really know you – it’s possible to be alone even in a city of millions.

We face difficult issues, unique challenges, and hopeful opportunities. We rejoice together in moments of gladness, and we mourn together in moments of sadness.

Through Christ’s finished work on the cross, we find truth, grace, and the courage to be vulnerable.  That’s what we experience on Sunday mornings and in our SP Groups. We’ve stopped hiding or trying to be perfect.  We’ve found a place where we could say things like, “I’m not the only one that struggles with that?” and “You know where I’m coming from?”  Pretense disappears as we grow closer to one another in the richness ofGod’s love.  

By sharing our hearts and lives, we experience deep friendships with those who seek to discover all that God has in store for His children.  Our deep desire is to “bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Gal. 6:2).
