faith builders

Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

The educational building blocks of our faith are laid in Sunday School and the act of studying God’s Word together and applying it to every aspect of our lives is the mortar that binds those blocks! From the young to the young-at-heart, every age group has its unique needs, and at Hickory Grove Baptist Church, we are committed to meeting those needs with enthusiasm, creativity and joy! Each of our trained Sunday School leaders has an impressive wealth of knowledge and experience, and their devotion to helping others build solid foundations in Jesus Christ is genuinely inspiring. For more information regarding Sunday School programs for you or your family, please call our church offices or leave a message on our contact page. We’re saving a place…just for you!






Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it. Proverbs 22:6

At Hickory Grove Baptist Church, we recognize the sometimes-overwhelming stumbling blocks and challenges faced by today’s children and youth. With faith in His promises, our children and teen leaders are always busy seeking and creating exciting opportunities for healthy, fun fellowship and character-building volunteer projects. Plans change from week to week, so stay in touch often. Scheduled events are updated regularly on our calendar.



Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6

Leaning in to the winds of change means leaning ON the One who tames the raging seas. The fast-paced world in which we live challenges us all and having the one-on-one support of fellow believers can lighten our burdens, bolster our courage, and strengthen our faith in the Lord in a powerful way. There is profound and meaningful value in small, intimate groups with focuses such as in-depth Bible studies, God’s message and our role in the challenging social issues of the times, tools for building solid, meaningful relationships, and the power of prayer without ceasing. Check our calendar regularly for opportunities to participate in one of our planned groups where you will learn, grow, and develop strong skills to lead others to the joy of service to the Lord Jesus Christ.



If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:11

Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone!”, Jesus commanded. And our world begins where? Right in our own backyard. Right here in Green Creek. In Columbus. In Polk County. In North Carolina. While still mindful of and effective in serving global needs through participation in such projects as Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child, Hickory Grove Baptist Church reaches out, reaches back, and reaches in to serve our very own community with love and with purpose: to fulfill the Great Commission. Some projects are scheduled far in advance, some are crisis driven, some require boots and a shovel, some require only a smile, a Bible, and a heart made tender by the Holy Spirit. All are lasting demonstrations of His infinite love for His children.

Every member at Hickory Grove Baptist Church has a special role to fill, a unique gift to offer, an appointed mission to serve God, and whatever your purpose, we have a place for you. Let us know your interests! Cook? Paint? Repair? Teach? Drive? Write? Pray? Listen? Every skill, every talent, every gift has a place at Hickory Grove! There is great joy in serving. We would love to share the experiences with you. Check our calendar page frequently for project dates and information.
