Manna Monday

Manna Monday is a food delivery ministry in which Brush Hill Church will prepare and deliver meals to those in need on Monday afternoons. Meal preparation begins at 1:30pm and deliveries begin around 3:30pm. The word “manna” comes from the story of God providing a food named “manna” in the desert for the Israelites when they were in need. Hunger is a real issue for many in the East Nashville area, and we are excited to be able to provide these meals for anyone else in need. Call the church office at 615-227-2504 or email Pastor Paul at bhcpcyouth@gmail.com to either receive meals or get involved in the ministry. Cooks and people willing to deliver food are always needed.

Room In The Inn

Brush Hill has been serving with the Room in the Inn Ministry since the 1970’s. During the colder months, we have the opportunity to share hospitality with men experiencing homelessness from around Nashville, including sharing a meal together, providing a safe place to rest, and an opportunity to swap stories.

Mission Trips

Mission trips are an important way in which we serve our neighbors and learn what God is up to locally, nationally, and internationally. In the past we have built outhouses on the Pine Ridge Reservation, thrown a baby shower for new parents in Welch, West Virginia, and served at local non-profits. We were also happy to serve the Coalition of Appalachian Ministry in recent years.

Youth Group

Brush Hill Cumberland Presbyterian Church Youth Group is made up of students from different schools in our community and is led by Allison Bone from St. Luke CP Church. Our youth group seeks to explore what faith in Jesus Christ looks like lived out. We believe that God is active in our world seeking to use us to love one another for God’s glory. We do this through learning the truths of Scripture, serving our church and community, and having fun! Weekly meetings are held at Brush Hill and St. Luke on a rotating monthly schedule.
