Located at 605 Jones Street, Old Hickory Church of the Nazarene has been a part of the life of Old Hickory Village since 1938. Beginning with just a dirt floor basement, Old Hickory Nazarene has added to its facilities many times over the years. In addition to the sanctuary and classrooms, the campus now consists of a Family Life Center which houses the church offices and the gym, a parsonage, and an educational wing which was dedicated in June of 2002.

Elly's Closet is a program designed for women experiencing hardship in need of clothing. Open Saturday mornings 9-11a or by appointment, women in need are invited to shop free of charge. The goal is to help women look and feel as professional and confident as they should at work, with clothing for casual comfort at home, too.


CONNECT with other people. Meeting in smaller groups helps develop friendships... CONNECT with your church. The many opportunities for ministry helps you to become more involved... CONNECT with your faith. Small groups provide a time to dig a little deeper. You are in a setting where you can question and discuss and learn together.

Sunday morning & Wednesday groups meet at the church. Other groups may meet at varied times & locations. For information on joining a small group, contact Debbie Woodard at 615-739-7367.
