The Parish Life committee's mission is to contribute to the vitality and growth of the church community through caring attention to social events and parishioners who attend the events. These events provide social opportunities to make friends, deepen relationships, and minister to those in need.
Building a community you can feel a part of, is important at Hickory Neck. One of the ways our parishioners interact happens during Coffee hour, after the 8:00am and 10:00am services. Come and join us for a cup of coffee and something sweet. It's a great time to get to know each other
The purpose of the Newcomers ministry is to welcome visitors to Hickory Neck Church who may be searching for a church home and to inform visitors of the mission and ministry of Hickory Neck Church, as well as how they can become a part of our church family.
Welcoming newcomers involves many activities, including Sunday Greeters, visitor cards, Newcomers' Welcome Bags, and Sweet Bread Bakes.
A team of volunteers provides refreshments, makes coffee/punch, picks up food at a local grocery, does setup and cleanup for special events, such as concerts and funerals on an as-needed basis.
A group of parishioners who enjoy reading choose a common book and come together to discuss it on a monthly basis.
Family Foyer is a group for families with younger children. It provides us the opportunity to share a meal, have fellowship, and allow the kids to play together outside of Sunday worship
Parishioners come together on a Friday night for an evening of fun and fellowship while playing cards and/or board games.
Kitchen assistants provide care for the kitchen in the Wilkinson Center by cleaning out the refrigerator, emptying the dishwasher, washing linens and maintaining general cleanliness. The commitment is one hour per month.
The men of the church gather on the 3rd Saturday morning of each month for a good home cooked breakfast, a speaker program, and some good fellowship.
Parishioners actively support protecting our environment through recycling reusable products whenever possible.
The sexton team does setup and breakdown tables and chairs in the New Chapel, Narthex, and Wilkinson Center for regular or special meetings/worship services. They set up easels, podium, audio visual equipment, and flip charts as needed.
