On Sunday, December 11, 2016, the Eastminster Presbyterian Church in the Inglewood area of East Nashville experienced a consuming fire of its sanctuary and educational building. Once the fire was contained and deemed safe, some members of the Eastminster Church were able to get into the office section of the Education wing and retrieve some files, books and other valuable items. The Woodland Presbyterian Church has opened it doors to the Eastminster Church (both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking congregations) to hold its worship services in the coming weeks. Other churches of the Presbytery have also called to offer assistance as needed. A sound system and projector have been identified and thank all that contributed to these needs.
Other needs as follows:
1. A table to leave on the stage where they can put a cross and their offering plates. Also would be used for communion.
2. A tall table or stand to put a projector and laptop on. They project scripture and songs in English and Spanish during their bilingual services.
Also, Eastminster Presbyterian Church has had a special account set up at USBank for anyone who would like to make monetary donations to Eastminster.
For more information regarding the above, please contact Connie Hamblen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep Eastminster Presbyterian Church lifted up in prayer, trusting that our God, who “gives beauty for ashes,” will surprise them with mercy and grace overwhelming!.
