Looking for community, spiritual growth and interaction on a smaller scale? Joining a Home Group is one of the best ways to connect with our church body. At The Village Chapel, we believe in developing community that doesn’t feel “forced.” That means that we don’t assign you to a small group based on your zip code or the first letter of your last name. Instead, we offer nearly two dozen groups throughout the metro Nashville area and beyond that meet on different days of the week, and you choose the group that is right for you. Stop by the Info Table or visit our Home Groups page for a complete listing of our current Home Groups.
The Village Chapel’s Men’s Ministry is based on our recognition of the need for mutual encouragement, accountability and transformation through committed relationships. Annual retreats, special events and weekly small groups, and we trust that the Lord will use these interactions to bring about personal growth, depth and maturity in our individual walks with Christ. Find accountability and encouragement at one of six Men’s Small Groups meeting in the morning before work or in the evening. For more information, including current Men’s Small Groups study topics, visit our Men’s Ministry page.
Are you interested in study and fellowship with other women from TVC? The TVC Women’s Ministry offers small study group settings, including a New Moms’ group, that facilitate both spiritual and relational nurture.

Special events and our annual retreat round out our offerings for women. Find complete details, including current study topics and teachers, at our Women’s Ministry page.

Kids & Parents
It’s never too early to introduce God’s love to children, and TVC Kids offers programming at both campuses for newborns through fifth grade. Your elementary school kids won’t want to miss out on our exciting children’s ministry. K-5 kids start out on Sunday mornings in the Worship Service with their parents before being dismissed to their own space. We also have a separate Preschool program, with age-appropriate activities and Bible lessons, as well as our thriving Nursery for babies and toddlers.
Sixth through 12th graders meet Wednesday nights at the Hillsboro Village Campus in their own space for separate studies targeted for middle school and high school students. TVC Youth also meet throughout the year to build community and offer opportunities for spiritual growth. These include retreats, camp, service projects, missions trips and other events. For more information on upcoming events and studies, visit our Youth Ministry page.
College Age Ministry
All college-age TVCers are invited to join us for a weekly study on Sunday Mornings at the Hillsboro Village campus during the school year. The goal of this group is to cultivate deeper community among the college-age population at TVC, encouraging them to grow in their faith and serve the community. The College Age Ministry is led by John and Kelly Richardson with Jonathan Harrell and anyone 18-24 is welcome to attend. You don’t need to be in college. Find out more at our College Age ministry page or email [email protected].
The Village Chapel recognizes that the twenties are a unique time in life when the focus is on starting a career, entering the workforce, attending grad school, establishing relationships and just trying to figure out life. This class is designed as an extension of TVC’s growing focus on developing godly leaders and young adults in the church. We offer a 20s Sunday Morning Small Group led by Bill and Karen Wells and geared toward young professionals and others in their 20s. Find out more about this group at our 20s page or email [email protected].
30s & 40s
Sunday Small Group starting September 15. More info coming soon.
Started in January 2014, the 50s+ Group meets every Sunday at 8:30 am in the Family Room at the Hillsboro Village Campus. This Sunday school class provides TVCers in their fifties or beyond with a vehicle for spiritual growth and fellowship within their own age group. They also host potlucks and other 50s+ Group activities. Get in touch with this group through i[email protected].
Our TVC Creative Arts group was created to glorify the Lord, to support the disciplined efforts of artists, and to display works for the benefit and enjoyment of our community. In addition to special events and meeting regularly to share meals and discuss issues related to spirituality and the creative process, our TVC Art Show series provides the painters, photographers, graphic artists and other creative types in our midst with a way to showcase their work. For more information, contact [email protected].
At The Village Chapel we believe the church exists first and foremost to glorify God, and then to become the arms of Jesus reaching out to a broken and hurting world. If you’re looking for ways to put feet on your faith, take part in our monthly Second Saturdays of City Service, annual outreaches like Room in the Inn and Operation Christmas Child or join us for a short-term missions trip. Visit our Missions page for details on upcoming opportunities.
