For the past 15 years, the Lord has blessed Rolling Hills Community Church with a Christ-centered message, a strong sense of community, vibrant preschool, kids and student ministries and a love for missions. As a result, people are experiencing spiritual growth, and God is adding to our numbers daily as the unchurched in our campus communities seek a relationship with Jesus. As we reach out, grow up and give all, we have seen God do immeasurably more in Middle Tennessee and around the world than we ever dreamed possible. Understand our growth is much bigger than just our Sunday morning attendance and the addition of new campuses. As people come and get plugged in at Rolling Hills, we’re seeing lives changed through a deeper growth that is resulting in an increased number of baptisms, partnerships and those participating in missions opportunities locally and around the world through Justice and Mercy International. We’ve witnessed a generation of children come through our family ministry, from the nursery to high school, and can see how a long obedience to invest in things that matter is leaving a legacy of Jesus that will long outlive any of us. Praise God!
As we have sought God’s direction, He has prompted and enabled us to take part in His work within the areas we serve. Now, as Middle Tennessee continues to grow, welcoming nearly 100 families a day to the area, we are beginning to experience constraints at our facilities in Franklin and Nolensville, which will hinder our ministry going forward. Even with the move to three services at our Franklin campus, we have been approaching capacity in our Auditorium, overflowing our parking lot and overcrowding our kids and youth ministry spaces during some hours. For our Nolensville Campus to become firmly established and continue to thrive in this community, we need a permanent facility within the next 18-24 months. With the addition of our third campus at Belmont Heights in January, we now have a responsibility to resource this campus to reach the city of Nashville with the Gospel and will need to find a permanent facility in this area before the end of 2019.
