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 30 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 our Men’s Small Groups. Choose between Tuesdays at 6:30 am at TVC Main, Tuesdays at 7:30 am at Franklin Mercantile, Wednesdays at 7 am at TVC East, Thursdays at 6:30 am at TVC Main or our newest option, a Thursday night group at 6:30 pm at TVC East. 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?

College Age Group
It’s never too early to introduce God’s love to children, and we offer 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 Sundays at TVC Main from 4-6 pm 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.
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.
