"Second Hour" varies throughout the month:
First Sunday of the Month we hold a potluck luncheon following Meeting for Worship. All who hunger are welcome, with or without a dish to share.
Second and Fourth Sundays we hold educational sessions, worship sharing and other sharing. [schedule]
Third Sunday we hold Meeting for Worship for Conduct of Business during the worship hour and on through the second hour. All are welcome. *Note that many worshippers choose to begin worship at 10:00 a.m. on this day in order to be more centered in preparation for conducting business in a worshipful way.
We are a non-pastoral meeting affiliated with the Southern Appalachian Yearly Meeting and the Friends General Conference. We worship in quiet waiting upon the Lord, during which anyone who is led by the Spirit to speak is welcome to speak as led. We come to worship neither planning to speak nor planning not to speak.
DIRECTIONS: Our meetinghouse is on the west side of 26th Avenue North just 2 blocks north of Charlotte Avenue. We are on the Southwest corner at the intersection of 26th Avenue North and Torbett Street.
Other Meetings nearest to Nashville are in Cookeville, TN and Memphis, TN.

"There is a principle that is pure, placed in the human mind, which in different places and ages hath different names. It is, however, pure and proceeds from God. It is deep and inward, confined to no forms of religion nor excluded from any, where the heart stands in perfect sincerity." --John Woolman
