This year's event will include:

  • A guided open house to help you learn more about RITI's programs and services
  • A chance to connect and share best practices with RITI volunteers from other congregations
  • An information session with staff members of RITI's residential programs

Interested parties can meet at the church to carpool to the event. Departure time will be 4:30pm from the church parking lot.

Alternatively, you are welcome to meet us at RITI for the festivities.

Please RSVP by August 25 if you plan to attend to Nancy Shade so that we have an accurate headcount.   


Nolensville First UMC has been participating in Room In The Inn for many years, providing a warm meal and bed for homeless men during the cold months. All ages in our church family have served here, as well as other churches from the community. In serving our guests, we experience Jesus. Did you know that Room In The Inn also provides year-round services to people experiencing homelessness? Services include education, workforce training, transitional housing, telephone and computer access, and many other ministries at their Nashville location.

As a result of our participation, the Church Council of Stewards has decided to make Room In The Inn our focus ministry over the 2019-2020 season. Our goal is to bring awareness to our community about Room In The Inn  and to provide opportunities for more people to experience Jesus by serving in this ministry. 

We have a team of volunteers who are available to guide you, your Sunday School class, or small group in finding ways to bring awareness to Nolensville of this worthy ministry so others can experience Jesus in service and connection with this ministry. The team members are Mary Beth Hagan, Carol Domaleski, Jason Bostelman, Jamie Albers, Nancy Shade, Amanda Zazworsky, and Kevin Gavin. Feel free to ask any of the team for more details or to talk with Pastor Jimmy.  Remember –

we all have a story to share!
