leave a comment »

Hello Friends-

How quickly time flies when you are having fun. I just realized we are extremely behind in keeping this site updated with information and news. I do apologize. There is much to update about MCM, so without further delay…

Our Annual Thanksgiving dinner for 2009 was a huge success. We had around 200 families in attendance and a great group of volunteers!  Everyone left full and happy and most of all, thankful! Jack Myers, our Programs and Events Director did an awesome job planning and directing this event!

The Christmas Party for Kids proved to once again be one of our favorite events of the year! We saw over 300 children packed into Music City Mission. They were treated to snacks, songs, a story, Children’s Pastor from Columbia, TN, Tonya Marks shared the Gospel and the TRUE meaning of Christmas with the kids and it was amazing! Of course, Santa came and brought over 1200 toys. We could NOT do this event without the many volunteers from Comdata, Nissan, Concord Community Church of the Nazarene, Grace Church of the Nazarene, Radnor Church of the Nazarene and numerous others. We once again, thank Jack Myers for his hard work planning this event, it truly takes a village to make it happen!

In January, MCM was privileged to partner with Feed the Children and Feed America First and handed out 2000 food, personal care and Avon boxes to several hundred Nashville/Davidson County Families. This was an exciting day as we saw many, many smiling faces and heard stories of what a blessing it was to receive these boxes meant. Pastor Bob Wilkerson, MCM CEO/Director and Jennifer Wilkerson, Director of Community Relations as well as Jack Myers, Programs and Events Director were on hand to assist and greet the families and had a wonderful time!

We are excited to announce our first annual Trivia Night and Silent Auction on Tuesday, February 23, 2010 @ 7:00 pm at MCM.  Come and enjoy a couple games of trivia and also bid on our silent auction items. We have items up for auction from numerous local and national corporations, such as Dollywood, Nashville Predators, O’Charley’s and MORE!  I promise you’ll enjoy what we are auctioning off!!!! There are some surprises as well! $10 gets you a spot on a team, or you can form your own team of 4 for $25! ALL proceeds go to Music City Mission. The funds will help us with our Annual Ladies Luncheon which is held in May as well as our Food Program. There will also be  concessions available! PLEASE mark your calendars and plan to come out and support us! To reserve a spot or for more questions or info, contact Jennifer Wilkerson at 788-1490 or musiccity.mission@yahoo.com.
