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.


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

Back to school is here! Where did our summer go? We plan to start the school year off right with a blessing of the backpacks on Sunday, August 5th. This will be time of prayer for our children, teens, college students, their teachers, and their schools. We want our students to know that God is with them, and we are supporting them as they begin a new school year.

Also, on August 5th from 4:00 to 6:00, we will have a pool party at the Pitzer/Woodard home. Pizza will be provided. Bring a towel and sunscreen and come dressed to swim. Please RSVP to Debbie Woodard.

This month in Children's ministries, we will focus on WISDOM! How perfect for the beginning of school. Wisdom - Finding out what you should do and doing it! Our memory verse for August is “If any of you needs wisdom, you should ask God for it. He will give it to you." James 1:5a

Thank you for helping us lead your children to a life filled with wisdom and love in Jesus Christ.
