Inclusive. Open. Home.

Our church is a place where all are invited in to discover who God is and the purpose God has for all of us. We think church should be one of the most engaging and exciting places on the planet even when that place is a virtual one.  We try to create an online experience where people of any and all backgrounds can experience a God who is real and relevant in their lives today. And that's exactly what we want to help you experience!

Afghan Refugee Aid

Hillsboro is partnering with Catholic Charities to support Afghan refugee families here in Nashville. There are multiple ways to get involved in this critical effort. Information on how to help is consistently updated, so be sure to regularly check out all the details HERE.

New Century Project

Hillsboro Presbyterian Church formed in 1920 when two churches (Broadway & Grace Presbyterian) gave up their unique individual identities to form something new.  Over a hundred years later we start a new century of ministry in search of that new identity God is calling us to.  The New Century Project will take place over 3 years. During that time we will explore who God is calling us to be and what we need to get us there.  Our hope is to begin this project by taking on and accomplishing something big & transformative together. Get more info HERE.

Advent/Christmas Story Books for Families

We don’t need more stuff.  And yet, there is a powerful impulse to give something tangible to our loved ones. When we feel that impulse, we might consider giving books. Books are more than stuff. They are profound ideas, thoughtful words, inspiring pictures. Below are some books that might help your children and family connect to the themes of this season.

  • Not a Box by Antoinette Portis

    This charming little book is a celebration of the creative spirit. With a little imagination, a box can be just about anything.

  • The Mitten: A Ukranian Folktale Adapted and Illustrated by Jan Brett

    In this classic tale, several animals find a warm place inside a mitten. Even when it seems crowded, there always seems to be room for more...almost always. A warm, endearing tale beautifully illustrated.

  • The Quiltmaker’s Gift by Jeff Brumbeau, Illustrated by Gail de Marcken

    The king has everything, but he isn’t happy. He keeps wanting more. When he learns about a magical quiltmaker and her wonderful quilts, he wants one. But she won’t make one for him until he makes gifts of all his other possessions. This is a wonderful story about knowing when you have enough, and about making room in life for what matters most.

  • The Give-Away, Written and Illustrated by Ray Buckley

    Ray Buckley is an author-illustrator of Lakota/Tlingit/Scots descent. This original story from Buckley shows the creatures of the forest as they come to terms with the fact that people – the “Two-leggeds” have lost a sense of who they are. They want more than they need and make others feel small so that they can feel big. Each wants to give away something of themselves to help the Two- leggeds find wholeness. And then the Creator appears. The ideas in this picture book are profound and will especially resonate with older children.

  • Room for a Little One by Martin Waddell, Illustrated by Jason Cockcroft

    This is a reimagining of the birth story from the animals’ perspective. Each animal seeks a place to stay and rest. All are welcomed with the same invitation – “Come inside. There’s always room for a little one here.” Gorgeous illustrations.

  • If the World Were a Village by David J. Smith, Illustrated by Shelagh Armstrong

    This is a nonfiction book that takes many of the overwhelming statistics about the people on our planet and imagines it all as a village of 100 people. This book does an astounding job of making abstract concepts more concrete, such as how many people have access to clean drinking water and how many people live with food insecurity. If the World Were a Village reminds us that there truly is enough for everyone...if we share.

Longest Night Service

Tuesday, December 21st is the winter solstice, the one day out of the year with the least daylight and most hours of darkness. At 7pm Hillsboro is holding a Longest Night Service. It will be a time of prayer and naming the grief experienced this year, but also a time of comfort and hope; remembering that when things are darkest, we can still pause to remember together that God's light and love drives out the darkness.

Christmas Eve Service

We are thrilled to announce a special candlelit service at 5pm on Christmas Eve. We have an amazing time of worship planned with beautiful music, an inspiring message, and plenty of candles for everyone. And if you can't make it in-person, we hope you'll join us online for the livestream as we celebrate Christmas together, near and far.

Good Neighbor Grant

The Greater Nashville community is facing an unprecedented crisis.  With thousands out of work and an entire region suffering expenses like rent, food and medical bills can pose an insurmountable financial burden for any family.  In the face of so much loss and uncertainty we're all searching for a way to be good neighbors to one another. Each week Hillsboro is giving out a grant to someone in Nashville. Nominate someone today to receive a grant or contribute to the fund by clicking the image to the left of right HERE
