Local Missions

Jesus calls us to live in service to others. Hillsboro partners with several local ministries throughout the year to help meet the needs of the communities of Nashville. If you are interested in participating in any of these ministries, contact us.

Awaken is a global movement of prayer and fasting that equips churches to pray for every person in their city, state, and region by name. Each year, Hillsboro joins hundreds of churches through Awaken Nashville to pray for every person in Nashville. Prayer and fasting packets for each family provide a biblically-focused guide through the experience of Awaken.

The Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort responds to any major disaster in the United States and U.S. Territories by sending truckloads of supplies to be distributed to all disaster victims in a particular area through a local Church of Christ. Hillsboro frequently partners with Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort in a variety of ways, including sending volunteers to help pack boxes and load trucks at the warehouse when there is an immediate need to respond to a disaster.

Day in the City is Hillsboro’s way of reaching out to family, friends, and neighbors. Several times a year, Hillsboro comes together to serve others through projects such as making and delivering gift baskets, helping with yard maintenance, coordinating local school maintenance projects, and more.

FriendSpeak helps individuals learn conversational English using an easy-to-read version of the Bible. Student readers develop reading, listening, and speaking skills with the aid of Hillsboro volunteers in a laid-back, friendly atmosphere.

The Nashville Inner City Ministry reaches out to thousands of children and families each year as they feed, mentor, tutor, and serve Nashville communities. Hillsboro regularly partners with NCIM to meet a variety of needs, including regular Food Drives to help provide items for the year-round pantry service and for yearly Thanksgiving meals for ministry participants.

The Needlework Outreach Ministry at Hillsboro works each week to provide hats and blankets for people in Nashville’s communities and across the globe. Thousands of hats for babies and adults have been sent to Hillsboro’s local and global missions partners to serve the communities in which they work. Additionally, the Needlework Outreach Ministry partners with the Tennessee Prison Outreach Ministry to teach knitting and crocheting to incarcerated women. Knitters and crocheters of all abilities are welcome, as are those interested in learning needlework.

December through February, Hillsboro joins churches across Nashville to serve our local homeless population through Room in the Inn. Each Saturday night, Hillsboro hosts men at the church building and provides a meal, a warm place to sleep for the night, and a care package. Church volunteers provide meals, laundry service for linens, hosting needs, and driving needs. Sign-ups for Room in the Inn start in the fall.

Tennessee Prison Outreach Ministry (TPOM) is a ministry that provides services to the incarcerated, returning citizens, and children of the incarcerated. Hillsboro partners with TPOM at local adult and teen facilities in many capacities, including worship services, Bible studies, life skills training, correspondence, mentorship, and more.

Walk4Water is a program of Healing Hands International that raises funds to drill wells across the globe for clean water access. Participants raise or donate funds, walk together as a group, and can also carry jerry cans filled with water during the walk to heighten the experience. The walk itself symbolizes the 4-mile average distance many women and children must take on a daily basis just to get clean water. Hillsboro participates in a walk each year.
