Church open house Dec. 9


First Southern Methodist Church, located in the heart of Sylvan Park at 4409 Colorado Avenue, will host an open house on Saturday, December 9, from 3 to 6 p.m.

The open house is a holiday celebration that will feature a performances by the church organist and choral ensemble, Christmas stories for children and a reception. The public is invited to attend. FSMC has a long history in West Nashville, as indicated by this information from the Westview newspaper:
So many of you have heard the story of how the old Cockrill School built in 1888 was torn down in 1939 when a new Cockrill School was built. A couple of years later, during a time when building supplies were very scarce, the bricks from the 1888 school were used to build a new church, First Southern Methodist Church (1941). The old school bell was also used from the 1888 structure. The bell will be used to ring in the starting of this celebration. The bell signifies the unity of history and change in our neighborhood that our church wishes to celebrate.
Thanks go to neighbor Yvonne Eaves for passing along this news.
