The church has an outstanding choir and band. Pastor Dan Scott's sermons are very good. Sometime the sermons include too much of a history lesson. The sermon may include a lot of information from U.S. history. The first service often goes pass 9:45 AM, when it is suppose to end. Therefore, Sunday school is often starting about ten minutes late. Sunday school always ends on time though, at 10:45 AM, even though it starts late most of the time. The first service starts at 8:30 AM. The second service starts at 11:00 AM. Sunday school is suppose to start at 10:00 AM, but hardly does because the first service almost always runs over into Sunday school.

One more thing to add, the church leadership currently does not care about Sunday school. It always steals time from Sunday school by running the early church service over.

How do you interpret this as them not caring? - lots of church services "run over" and volunteers are expected to "live with it" - your complaint sounds more personal?

HEY - how did you discover Church Rater - and what are people saying about us?

 

If a church cares about Sunday school it will provide a full Sunday school class as stated on the church calendar weekly instead of constantly using over 20% of Sunday school time for the early church service. Christ Church Nashville is consistently reducing the time of adult Sunday school classes from 45 minutes to 35 minutes because the Senior Pastor, Pastor Dan Scott, does not care to provide time for a full Sunday school class. Sunday school always ends on time though, because the Sunday school teachers provide a full 15 minutes for people to move from Sunday school to the second church service.

I discovered Church Rater through an article in the Tennessean.

Thanks for your feedback

The official time of the 1st service is 8:30-10:00. not 9:45

What is the official time of Sunday school?

If the official time of Sunday school is 10:00 AM, why doesn't the Sunday school teachers start the Sunday school classes at 10:00 AM.

The Christ Church web site says Sunday school is at 10:00 AM. No need to wait for the folks from the first service to come to Sunday school.

I am going to start going to the second service because I am going to the Christ Church YMCA right after the service, or whenever the official time is for it to end. I do not know the official time for the second service to end.

The Christ Church YMCA opened on November 1, 2010.

The Christ Church YMCA opens at 12:30 PM on Sundays.

Thanks for listening too. I really like the Christ Church YMCA plan where Christ Church will be the newest location of the YMCA of Middle Tennessee. I am going to the Maryland Farms YMCA this afternoon. I did not get to go to Sunday school this morning because the early church service went too long and I told Pastor Dan Scott that I was not going to go to any more stripped down Sunday school classes. This morning when it was almost 10:00 AM, Pastor Dan Scott said that no one should leave the service until the choir sang the last song.

Sounds like Dan disagrees with you

Thanks for the review

keep em coming

He say he doesn't disagree. But, then he never makes an effort to end the early service on time either. I really don't know. You may ask him. His e-mail is dan@christchurchnashville.org

I really did not enjoy church today because it went over and I was not provided with a full Sunday school class to go to.

I did enjoy going to Maryland Farms YMCA today.

Maybe when the Christ Church YMCA opens, I will skip going to the church service and just go to Christ Church YMCA on Sundays.

Looks like you've got it worked out

Of course, you may find a few unhappy that the YMCA of Middle Tennessee is taking over running part of the church building. But, I am very happy the YMCA of Middle Tennessee is taking over part of the church. I am already a member of the YMCA of Middle Tennessee. I have the plan where I may use all the YMCA of Middle Tennessee locations. My home YMCA is the Harding Place YMCA. Now, if only the YMCA of Middle Tennessee could only take over running everything else at the church. The YMCA of Middle Tennessee runs activities on time from beginning to end. And, the YMCA of Middle Tennessee makes one feel happy that they are part of the organization and is excellent at handling complaints.

As a long time member at the Hardwick Activity Center, I think you'll find that alot of people will be upset that they are losing a valuable resource in the community rather than just control over part of a building.  I came there because I could not afford the "reduced" rate offered by the Harding Place Y.    It has always been safe,clean, accessable, and, unlike my visits to various Y facilities,  has always been a friendly and inclusive place to workout.  I will miss it terribly come September.

It is my understanding that Christ Church had to give up the Hardwick Activity Center because it could not pay the taxes on it and the YMCA of Middle Tennessee is bailing the church out.

The Christ Church YMCA is not going to benefit me much, except give me the option of going to the second church service, then go straight to the YMCA without having to move my car. My YMCA of Middle Tennessee gym bag will be good to take my gym clothes to church in.

I chose the Harding Place YMCA because it only takes me about 3 minutes to get there from my apartment and it opens at 5:00 AM. That gives me 2 hours to be there in the morning, still have time to go back to my apartment, and get ready for work, and make it to work on time which is 12 miles across town.

I like the Maryland Farms YMCA better than the Harding Place YMCA, but is not close enough for me to go to in the mornings. I spent 4 1/2 hours today at the Maryland Farms YMCA. Of course, I live close to Christ Church, only about 4 miles from it.

It seems Pastor Dan Scott is never going to have Sunday school start on time again. Today, the early church service was over at 9:59 AM. So, instead of going to a stripped down Sunday school class, I went shopping at the Dollar General Market. Then, this afternoon I went to the Maryland Farms YMCA. I don't think it is possible to get through to Pastor Dan Scott that ending the early church service at 9:59 AM is NOT starting Sunday school at 10:00 AM. That the early church service needs to end on time at 9:45 AM in order for Sunday school to start on time at 10:00 AM.

Things did go better today. The early church service ended at 9:52 AM. Pastor L.H. Hardwick Jr preached until 9:46 AM, then turned things over to Pastor Daniel L. Scott, Jr. 

I was  betting that Pastor Dan Scott would drag things until 9:59 AM and I would be on my way to shopping. But, instead I went to Sunday school because the early church service ended at 9:52 AM. I wanted to see exactly what time Sunday school would start with the early church service ending at 9:52 AM. I have been stating that the early church service needs to end on time at 9:45 AM in order for Sunday school to start on time at 10:00 AM.

My Sunday school class, LIfenotes, started at 10:05 AM. It was taught this week by Don Kintner. Don plays the trombone in the church band and is a professor at Trevecca Nazarene University here in Nashville, Tennessee. He is a great Sunday school teacher. He had an outline of the lesson passed out to the class. He ended the lesson before the last point on the outline because he said he needed to end on time. And, he had a couple that he wanted to speak to the class for the last few minutes. That he would save the last point for next week. I like to here Pastor Dan Scott say that when the early church service is going over. Sunday school ended on time at 10:45 AM.

Now I am going shopping and to the Maryland Farms YMCA.

I am working today, so I will not be at the early service and Sunday school.

I might go to the 6:30 PM service, if I feel like it.

I hope whoever is preaching today does not feel like they have to be the center of attention and ends the early church service on time at 9:45 AM so the Sunday school teachers have time to provide a full Sunday school class.

Christ Church offers live and on-demand webcasts of their services, as well as a list of archives for Sundays one might have missed. Here is the web site:

The timing of everything could have been better today, but of course it was not. It was possible to have the early service over at 9:45 AM. The early service was not dismissed until 9:59 AM. The choir did not stop singing until 10:01 AM. My Sunday school class started at 10:09 AM. Same old, same old. You may watch the service for this week on the link I listed about. Now, it is time to go to the Maryland Farms YMCA. Pastor Dan did say the church did not convince the court not to have to pay the taxes on the building during the sermon. I wish he would have went into more detail about that.

Is anyone else from your church reading your writings on ChurchRater, so far as you know?

Jenny above is, of course.

I think someone else is too, because Pastor Dan said he knew that he was over this morning, but the service would be finished before the top of the hour. I think that is why he made sure to dismiss the service by at least 9:59 AM.

When I was at the Maryland Farms YMCA today, I heard someone ask at the desk about the Christ Church YMCA opening. I might just go to Sunday school, the later church service, and straight to the Christ Church YMCA when it opens. I'll just go ahead and wear my gym clothes to Sunday school and church so I will not have to change. The Christ Church YMCA is going to open at 12:30 PM on Sundays. The Maryland Farms YMCA is the only YMCA that I know of that opens early Sunday morning in the Nashville area.

On Sunday, August 29, 2010, Dr. Asa Andrew spoke in church. He was a very good speaker. I can't find out much about his education on the Internet. Can anyone tell me if he is just a doctor of chiropractic or has he finished medical school too? I did not find his bio on the Internet. Can anyone tell me where it is located?

On the Christ Church web site the official time for the first service is not listed correctly because it says from 8:30 am - 9:00 am

For the second service is says:

 

11:00 AM WORSHIP SERVICE

 

Date: 11/07/10    (Event ranges from 08/08/10 to 12/19/10)
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM
TEAM: WORSHIP & WORD TEAM
Contact: MICHELLE CASTRO
209
.
Room(s): BALCONY (SANCTUARY) | CHOIR AREA (SANCTUARY) | MAIN LEVEL (SANCTUARY) | PLATFORM (SANCTUARY)
 

I believe the official amount of time for the first service is the same as the second: 8:30 AM - 9:45 AM.

Reading some of the reviews of other churches, that come down to basically the folks there ignored me, did not properly greet me, and did not make me feel as part of there group, I bet all y’all are amazed we are busy talking about a 15 minute scheduling conflict between the first service and Sunday school and if the folks employed by the YMCA of Middle Tennessee, which is running the Christ Church YMCA, will make people feel as welcome as the Christ Church folks that ran the Hartwick Activity Center.

I called the Christ Church YMCA yesterday to see if the technicalities had been worked out with the TV’s on the treadmills. The person answering the phone was very friendly and made me feel good even over the phone.

The technicalities of getting Comcast cable working properly in the Christ Church YMCA had not been worked out, so I went to the Maryland Farms YMCA.

The Christ Church YMCA opens at 12:30 PM on Sundays.

It is run by the YMCA of Middle Tennessee.

I give the Christ Church YMCA 10+ STARS because it does not matter if the second church service is going pass 12:30 PM, the Christ Church YMCA is open at 12:30 PM, which is on time.

Now, if only Sunday school would start on time.

I am no longer a member of Christ Church. I now belong to another church. I did receive an email from the church's 2013 business meeting. I am wondering why the church's average weekly attendance fell from 1703 in 2011 to 1407 in 2012. That is a loss of 296 people.

I am still a member of the YMCA of Middle Tennessee. I have system wide membership. So, I may use the Christ Church YMCA if I wish.
