About Us

Woodland Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA) based in East Nashville. For more than 160 years, our community has worked to live into God’s call for the church in the world and for us as people of faith. We come together as believers and skeptics, creating space for our big questions, deep wounds, and great hopes. Together, we grow in faith and try to be good neighbors to all we encounter.

Our Welcome Statement:

Woodland Presbyterian Church is an inclusive community of faith seeking to share God’s love for all creation. We welcome everyone to the life and leadership of the church, embracing people of all races, cultures, abilities, sexual orientations, and genders as expressions of the Divine. Together, we joyfully work to embody in our lives the love of Jesus Christ.
