An association of United Church of Christ laypersons and UCC friends promoting prayer and daily meditation on God’s Word and the greater unity, fellowship and spiritual vitality of the Nashville-area United Church of Christ & UCC friends The Upper Room UCC Fellowship derives its name from our common use of the UPPER ROOM daily devotional for daily prayer and scripture meditation. Scripture cites the Last Supper as being in an “upper room” and the early church received the Holy Spirit in an upper room at Pentecost! So too the prophet Daniel found strength to oppose King Darius in an “upper room” where he got down on his knees three times a day to pray. To advance in spiritual growth and care for others, so we also go daily to the upper rooms of mind & soul in prayer and meditation on God’s Word!
To encourage daily prayer & meditation on God’s Word, the Upper Room UCC Fellowship distributes the UPPER ROOM daily devotional & also promotes use of the UCC StillSpeaking devotional, as well as having periodic potluck suppers with educational & inspirational programs to rededicate ourselves to living more prayerful lives in daily communion with God, rotating our potluck supper fellowship meetings among our four Nashville-area UCC churches to have a closer communion with God & one another and to advance the greater unity, fellowship & spiritual renewal of the Nashville-area United Church of Christ & UCC friends!

Fall Potluck Supper
At potluck suppers with inspirational & motivational programs we rededicate ourselves anew to a life of prayer & care and daily meditation on God’s Word via the UPPER ROOM & StillSpeaking daily devotionals with guest speakers on enhanced prayer life & relationship with God, and a greater life of faith & love in closer communion with God & one another! We believe the keys to personal & church growth are daily meditation on God’s Word, personal & intercessory prayer, and interpersonal love and fellowship!
