I’m New Here
We know there are many questions that accompany searching for a new spiritual home. We hope the information below will help answer some of those questions.
What Happens Once I Arrive?
We can’t wait to welcome you to one of our physical campuses. But until then, please join us for worship online on Facebook, YouTube and here on The BLVD Online! Once we do gather together for in-person worship again, parking attendants will help you locate a parking space, and direct you to the nearest entrance. Upon entering the building you’ll encounter a member of our Greeter’s Ministry welcoming you at the door. Finally you’ll be placed into the hands of one of our capable Ushers who will help you find a comfortable seat in our sanctuary and prepare you for worship.
Where do I go?
We are always excited to welcome guests into our BLVD family. Whether you’re joining us for worship at our Southwind or Midtown campuses, or if you’re joining us via our online experience, we are happy you’ve decided to stop by! No matter how you got here, we will be here every step of the way to welcome you into The BLVD Family.
If you’re interested in visiting one of our physical campuses, please see our Location page for more information. We are currently meeting exclusively online during this time.
Where do my kids go?
At the BLVD we love children! And we believe that your child’s spiritual maturity is just as important as your own spiritual growth.
Our NEXUS ministries offer age appropriate, exciting, and creative programming available for children and youth at each of our campuses every week: Tune in at 2:30PM Tuesdays on Youtube for “Story Time with Ms. Ty”! Settle in for a wonderful time of storytelling each week led by members of our Children’s Ministry team. The 2nd Sunday of each month is Family Sunday at The BLVD, when we strongly encourage families to worship together, as our children and youth lead us!
We have a ministry for every age and stage of childhood. Connect with one of our NEXUS Children & Youth Ministries!
Discipletown Jr. (2mo-4yo)
Our Nursery is equipped with loving staff and safe facilities to care for your little one as you are fed in worship. For more information please contact Discipletownjr@theblvd.org
Discipletown offers elementary school aged children innovative resources to help children grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and one another. We believe in making disciples! For more information please contact Discipletown@theblvd.org
Nexus Youth (6th-12th)
Our Nexus ministry guides middle school and high school youth toward spiritual maturity. We make young disciples through mentorship, empowerment, study, & fellowship. For more information please contact NEXUSYouth@theblvd.org
Will I meet Pastor Turner?
Pastor Turner would love to meet you! There are several different gatherings and opportunities to meet him. Check out our website for more information on where to connect with him next!
How do I make a commitment to Christ or unite with The BLVD?
Pastor Turner extends the Invitation to Christian Discipleship each week following the sermon. But you don’t have to wait until then, you may express your desire to unite with The BLVD and commit to Christ by emailing Connect@theblvd.org anytime! You can come by Christian experience, watch care, or candidate for baptism.
What about my kids?
When your child is ready to make a commitment to Christ they will have an opportunity to express that desire as part of our NEXUS Ministry Sunday programs. Information about the child’s next step will be shared with the parents and coordinated by the leaders of our NEXUS ministry.
What are my Next Steps?
Our New Disciples classes are held on the third and fourth Saturdays of each month. You’ll be expected to attend the next available session. You’ll be paired with a member of our Bridge Team who will help you keep track of upcoming dates and walk you through the process of becoming a New Disciple! Then you’ll be placed in a Life Group that’ll help you find your place at The BLVD.
What are the worship services like?
Each Sunday at The BLVD we host two vibrant worship experiences. During worship you will encounter a friendly vibe and the air around you will always be filled with diverse musical selections that are spirit-led and delivered with excellence. Each Sunday you’ll experience a dynamic message, that is theologically sound offered by our pastor Rev. Dr. J. Lawrence Turner. We welcome you to tune in for worship, via Facebook, YouTube or here on The BLVD Online!
What do I wear?
If you prefer dressy, business, or casual attire, chances are there will be others dressed much like you no matter when you visit or which campus you attend. Culturally, The BLVD is a place where you’ll be right at home, whatever you wear.
But if you’re dying to know, our members at the Midtown campus tend to dress more formally, while our members at the Southwind campus adhere to business casual attire, and of course if you’re a member of our Online campus the standard attire ranges from Sunday Best to Bedtime Formal. Just come as you are and worship with us!
Know that you are wanted and loved. As we Lead, Learn, Live, and Love without Limits know that there is a place for you at The BLVD. For any questions you may have please reach out to us at (901) 729-6222 or and to stay up on the latest subscribe to our eNews by submitting your email address below.
Thanks for considering The BLVD for your new spiritual home. We’ll see you soon!
