The purpose of youth ministry at Belle Meade UMC is to build mature Christian adults. One of the most meaningful ways we do this is by our work in the area of missions. From serving right here in the Nashville area to our youth choir's visits to nursing homes and care facilities for developmentally challenged people to summer construction work at various sites around the southeast to international missions trips, we are helping to teach young people the value of serving others and being leaders through serving. Your support helps to make this possible!
On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the sun will sweep across the United States from approximately noon until 3:00 PM (Central Time). The eclipse will reach totality at roughly 1:26 PM (CT) in Tennessee. The exact timing and duration of totality depends on your location within the state. This is the first total solar eclipse to affect the continental U.S. since 1979. Metro Nashville Public Schools will be out of school on August 21, so bring your school-aged kids with you!
12:30 — Quick presentation on solar eclipses and safety by our own Astrophysicist Natasha McMann in the Fellowship Hall - this will last 20 minutes and is family-friendly.
1:00 — Start heading out on the lawn.
1:15 — Put on sunglasses (provided) and watch! (You must wear sunglasses to view the solar eclipse and we will provide 200 NASA-approved Sunglasses so first come, first serve.)
