Welcome to Cheatham Memorial and our “digital front door”! I hope you enjoy looking through our many activities and will find a place to connect with us. We are a 139 year old congregation with deep ties to our community and our families.  However!   We are not stuck in the past.  Our congregation is anchored by tradition but committed to renewal and keeping up with the ever changing ways to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Our doors are wide open and waiting for you.  Please contact me at any time if I can be of service!
