Art Show Opening

Nashville is home to a wealth of creative talent and we love to feature work from TVC’s own artist in our Gallery from time-to-time. We invite you to join us between all services on Sunday, October 20 to see the opening of a new show by Pam Hastings called “In The Garden”. The Gallery is located in the Living Room at the Hillsboro Village Campus.

Creative Arts Potluck

Make plans to join us later this week on Friday, October 25 at 6 pm in the Living Room at the Hillsboro Village for our next Creative Arts Potluck. Pam Hastings will share more about the inspiration behind her new show, “In The Garden”, as we mingle with fellow creatives from our church. Pam’s hope is that her art exposes people to the beauty and intimate detail of God’s creation through landscapes, animals and exquisitely delicate roses. Julie Sumner, who holds a Master of Fine Arts in Poetry, will also be joining us to share some of her written word which has been featured in various national publications. Bring a dish to share and RSVP below!

Missions Highlight: PR Ministries

PR Ministries is a non-profit organization that for the past 34 years has come alongside artists and entertainers to encourage and challenge them in their walks of faith with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They serve as facilitators to keep artists and creatives focused and grounded with their priorities in order: their faith, marriage and families. Their goals have always been to disciple today’s creative leaders in the studio or while touring and encourage them to get plugged into their local church and under the covering of pastoral care. 9.

Call To Worship

Jesus Shall Reign

by Isaac Watts (1719) based on Psalm 72

Jesus shall reign where’er the sun

Does its successive journeys run,

His kingdom stretch from shore to shore, Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

For Him shall endless prayer be made, And princes throng to crown His head; His name, like sweet perfume, shall rise With every morning sacrifice.

People and realms of every tongue Dwell on His love with sweetest song, And infant-voices shall proclaim Their early blessings on His name.

Blessings abound where’er He reigns; The prisoners leap to lose their chains; The weary find eternal rest,

And all the sons of want are blest.

Let every creature rise and bring Honors peculiar to our King; Angels descend with songs again, And earth repeat the loud amen!

Call To Worship

Let God Be Honored

Praise and honor wait for You, oh God,

And to render them is my noblest endeavor. Worship is due from all Your creatures,

for all Your works display Your attributes and declare Your glory!

The sea and dry land,

the winter cold and summer heat, Morning light and evening shade, all are filled with Your presence!

You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

At Your pleasure empires rise and fall;

All Your works praise You and all Your saints bless You. Let me be numbered with the ancient ones.

Let me resemble them in character and condition.

Let me sit with them at the feet of Jesus

with an open heart and a listening ear.

May my faith be rooted in Your Word,

My understanding informed by Your Spirit. May my affections be holy and heavenly,

May my motives be simple and pure.

As I give You my heart, let me be wholly Thine.

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, amen!

Sunday Small Groups and Sunday Schools

No matter your age or stage of life, it’s important that as believers we find community we can grow with and learn alongside. That is why this September, we will be offering several new Sunday Small Groups hosted at our Hillsboro Village Campus focused on life decades and/or experience. No matter your season of life, you’ll be able to find a group focused on growing in your faith and strengthening relationships with those in our church.

Our College-Age Group (led by Jonathan Harrell and Kelly Richardson) resumed their Sunday morning meetings at 11:30 in the Living Room focused on a study called Real God. The new 20s Sunday Small Group led by Kevin and Kelly Rudd will also meet on Sundays at 11:30 am in the Bonus Room. Whether you’re single or married, this class welcomes those in their 20s, starting their career, just out of college or in grad school searching for a community of fellow believers.

We’re also excited to launch the upcoming 30s and 40s Sunday Small Group. This group is led by Jan and Mickey Harlow with Jake and Caroline Smith and will meet Sunday mornings at 8:30 am in the Living Room starting September 15. For those established in their careers, starting families or simply looking to grow alongside those in this age group, we hope you join us. 

Led by Mel and Sandy Smith, our 50s+ group will continue meeting each Sunday morning during the 8:30 am hour in the Family Room. 

Our new “The Prayers of Paul” Sunday School class will focus on understanding the Apostle Paul’s background, training and mission. Each week we will study the types of prayers he prayed and also learn how to effectively deepen our own prayer lives. This 8-week class will meet during the 10 am hour in the Bonus Room at the Hillsboro Village Campus beginning September 8. 

We’re also offering The Meaning of Marriage (based on the popular book by Tim Keller). This six week class is led by Jeff and Molly Jones at 10 am on Sunday mornings in the Living Room at the Hillsboro Village Campus. Whether you’re engaged, newly married or have been married for many years, this class will be a rich time of learning and discussion. 

Learn more about all of these Sunday Small Groups and Classes at ongoing.thevillagechapel.com.

The Apostles’ Creed

We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,

and in Jesus Christ,

His only Son, our Lord:

Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell.

The third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven

and sits at the right hand

of God the Father Almighty,

from there He shall come

to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.

Amen.
