The purpose of Old Hickory United Methodist Church shall be to advance the cause of Christianity by providing the greater Old Hickory community a place for congregational worship, study, and fellowship in the United Methodist tradition.
This community of believers will:
* Seek to win souls for Christ, wherever they may be;
* Emphasize the Lordship of Christ and the individual worth of all persons in Christ;
* Minister to all of its members and help them grow in their faith;
* Study the Word of God in its Sunday school classes, hear the Word of God preached from its pulpit, and receive the Sacraments;
* Provide for the nurture and training of all age groups; and,
* Reach out to meet the needs of people in the community and beyond.
On Wednesday nights, we have a catered dinner followed by Bible study. Choir practice follows at 7:00pm.
On Sunday mornings, we have Sunday School classes for all ages at 9:45am, followed by our worship service at 10:55am. Nursery care for small children is provided.
Our Sunday School class offerings include:
We are located at 1216 Hadley Ave in Old Hickory Village. From State Route 45, turn onto Hadley Ave. We are at the corner of Hadley and 13th on your left.
Old Hickory United Methodist Church was first organized in 1925 and met in the "little gym," currently the site of the Old Hickory Community Center. The construction of the current sanctuary was begun with services held in the basement. The sanctuary was completed in 1929 at a cost of $30,000. The first service was held on the first Sunday in 1929. Pews replaced folding chairs in 1936.
In 1939, the educational annex was completed at a cost of $10,000. A second floor was added in 1954.
The sanctuary was remodeled and redecorated in 1967 with new cushioned pews added in 1990. Marvin Rodgers memorials placed new pew Bibles, lectern, wedding candle, Advent wreath, Paschal candlestick, communion ware, and candelabra in the sanctuary.
In 1982, the Prayer Room was built.
The stained-glass windows were installed in 1983, given in memory or in honor of loved ones.
The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in May 1985.
Over the years, we have continued to upgrade and improve the church building to provide the best space possible for the edification of believers and the worship of God.
