Christ Presbyterian Church’s annual ‘Party on the Lawn’ is Sept. 25 at the campus west of Brentwood.
This annual event is held on the front lawn of the church, located at located at 2323 Old Hickory Drive, facing Old Hickory Boulevard.
Christ Presbyterian has contracted a vendor in South Carolina to set up a full size Ferris wheel at this year’s event. This theme park-quality ride will be open and free to the public from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 25.
In addition, Party on the Lawn is going the extra mile to make this event user-friendly for children with special needs. Christ Presbyterian, well known for it’s ministry to children with special needs, has created a special “Fast Pass” for any family that has children with special needs. This “Fast Pass” allows these families to arrive early at the event, and get “front of the line” privileges at every ride.
While vacationing in Mexico last year, a Nolensville man and his family had their lives changed forever when Greg Smalley and his son, Xander, were body-surfing and a wave crashed into them, rendering Greg with a broken neck and unable to move.
The Smalley family soon after went to Atlanta for Greg’s extensive and difficult rehabilitation. Now, they are building a wheelchair accessible home in Nolensville to accommodate for Greg’s quadriplegic status.
To help raise money for the modified home, a Chili Cook Off and Silent Auction are taking place this weekend. The event is being held at the Historic Nolensville School on Nolensville Road next to the new Recreation Center. Volunteers are needed to help make this a success.
The event will take place from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will feature a silent auction that closes at 7 p.m., a live auction that starts at 7 p.m., a bake sale all day, the chili cook-off from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., and live music and dancing.
Ansbach Artisans’ monthly Saturday Night Live Art event will be even bigger in September as they join with neighbors at OnTrack Studios for an evening of local live art.

Ansbach Artisans will feature the work of five artists from the Tennessee Watercolor Society (TnWS): Jan Batts, Glenna Cook, Donna Littleton, Christine Parachek Marshall and Sally Murphy. Mel Deal will provide live music for the evening on his smooth jazz guitar.
Families can enjoy seeing the artists’ works come to life at this month’s Saturday Night Live Art event where they will have the opportunity to meet and speak with the artists on site, observe their work in progress and purchase works by the artists.
