What will the experience be like? Cathedral Of Praise is a welcoming church with a family friendly atmosphere.  It’s mix of both contemporary and traditional.  You will find church like your grandparents used to take you, but with a modern twist.

How early should I get there? Try to arrive 15 minutes before service time to get comfortable and be in your seat at the very start of service.  You don’t want to miss any of the service from beginning to end and we believe in starting on time.

What should I wear? You will find that clothing is not the focus of the church.  While respectable attire for worshiping a HOLY God is in order, we know that not everyone is comfortable in traditional ‘church’ attire.  So, you will find that some people come in office attire, some in casual (but decent) attire.  Oh, and of course, some come in full dressy church attire.  The good thing is no one should bother you.  We believe salvation is an inside job.  (quoted from the late Bishop G.E. Patterson)

What about my kids? We love children at C.O.P.     We offer Children’s Church, Youth Church and a Nursery for crawlers.   You will find Cathedral Of Praise is the perfect place to raise your children.

What if I want to learn more about Cathedral Of Praise?  Feel free to call the church office at 615-876-8740 x0 or email us at receptionist@cathedralpraise.org.  In addition, you can ask to speak to any of our Pastoral Staff.  They would love to share more with you.
