On August 18th of 2019, many of us stood outside on a blazing hot summer day to break ground on our new chapel and children’s area. Woodmont had just celebrated its 76th birthday a month before. Although construction took longer than we originally anticipated, I am now happy to report that our new addition is complete and looks phenomenal! This grand addition to our church is the result of many years of visioning, planning, and growth. We have countless people, both lay and staff, who have worked tirelessly to see this project......
We have now moved into the month of November, so I wanted to write and give you a few general updates of plans we are making here at the church.

Woodmont just celebrated its 77th birthday. Our church was planted on July 18, 1943.

So far, our new church year (began July 1st) is off to a......
We are pleased to report continuing progress on our new chapel and classrooms in spite of the record rains. The concrete block walls are now complete and the steel frame is underway. The parking lots are continuing and we hope to have both new lots ready for use for the Easter Service. Since the site work started last October, we have had 55 rain days and approximately 34 inches of rain. The average annual rainfall for Nashville is 49 inches. Since the work was all outside in this phase of the expansion,......
Thank you for supporting the “Building for Our Future” Capital Campaign! It is very exciting to now see the walls of our new chapel going up. We spent most of the fall digging into rock, excavating, and getting the site ready to build. This involved a significant amount of rock removal and detailed civil engineering to deal with stormwater run-off and drainage.
