Welcome to a community of two great churches in partnership together!

Dear friends,

Andrew Price Memorial UMC and hickory Bend UMC are two churches here in Donelson with the same heartbeat for loving God, loving one another and loving our community.

Through worship and on-going local mission projects we are living out a call to be disciples of Jesus Christ. We want to be relevant to your life here and now. We hope to bring transformation and hope!

Come visit us at Worship on Sundays at 9:15 at AP and 11:00 at HB. Journey with us as we make a new way forward!

Grace and peace, +Melisa
