Current Home Groups

If you are looking for community that goes beyond our weekend meetings, joining a Home Group is one of the best ways to connect with our church body. We have more than two dozen groups that meet weekly or every other week on various nights during the school year at locations all around Nashville. Some continue to meet during the summer months, but be sure to check before showing up.

At The Village Chapel we believe in developing community that doesn’t feel “forced.” Instead of having permanent, assigned small groups based on your zip code or the first letter of your last name, you can choose any group you want. For your convenience, they’re sorted by location, day of the week, etc. Each group involves a time of fellowship, discussion and prayer, but they develop different personalities based on the people who attend. Some groups require a semester-long commitment while others are open for those who need the flexibility to come and go or who want the freedom to try a few different groups before settling in. Click on any link below for more information on a specific group. Once you find the right group for you, click on the “email leader” button. 

Group details for the fall season are currently in the process of being updated.

Lord Of All Our Days

O God, You are Lord of all our days and all our nights. Every star in heaven answers Your call

and offers their joyful obedience.

As we come to worship You today,

Stir our hearts to respond to You in like manner.

As we end one week and begin another

Grant us the peace of knowing we belong to You. Open our eyes to see the security of Your sovereignty And the wonders of Your love.

To Your care we commend our souls.

To Your will we bow our own.

To Your grace we happily surrender,

Receiving from You what we have not deserved.

Now we raise our glad hallelujahs! Now we offer You all glory and praise!

O Creator God,

be blessed to receive our most grateful thanksgivings. Let every heart shout it aloud, Amen! Amen!

Call to Worship


Almighty and Eternal God

Almighty and Eternal God,

You are hidden from my sight:

You are beyond my understanding, Your thoughts are not my thoughts, Your ways are a mystery.

Yet You make a way for me to find You, to be found by You.

You have breathed your Spirit into me. You have formed my mind to seek You. You have inclined my heart to love You. You have made me restless

for the rest that is in You.

You have planted within me

a hunger and thirst,

only satisfied by the Bread of Life, the Living Water.

Thank You, for Your waiting presence, Your tender mercies,

Your unshaming forgiveness,

Your pursuing love,

Your trustworthy refuge, thank You for courage for what You call me to.

Today, tomorrow and the next,

we give You praise, honor and glory, Almighty, and Eternal God.

Led by Josh Pardy, we’ll be diving into life’s challenging questions, featuring videos from the Zacharias Trust Foundation. Make plans to join us in the Family Room at the Hillsboro Village Campus on September 4 at 6:30 pm as part of our First Wednesdays. RSVP for childcare below.

Parents will be invited to watch the performance at 7:30 pm immediately following Biblical Thinking: The Big Whys.
