Hickory Grove youth serve in Pa.
    May 9 2011 by Hickory Grove Baptist Church

    Forty-four middle and high school students chose to spend their spring break serving others in Pennsylvania.

    The Christ in Action student worship team of Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Charlotte partnered with The Foundry Church in Wallingford, Pa., to provide assistance and support to the Philadelphia area.

    Hickory Grove Baptist Church youth from the Charlotte area offer coffee to passersby (driving and walking) during their recent spring break.


    “This break will be different from normal,” said Ashley Reed, 14. “But I think it’s worth so much more to spend my time reaching out to people in need.”

    Projects included serving at a food bank, a pregnancy resource center, and clothes closet; giving food to college students, providing coffee at a train station, and coordinating programs for the neighborhood children and students.

    Christ in Action, based on Matthew 28:19, is a student-led worship ministry at Hickory Grove for sixth- through 12th-graders.

    The ministry uses drama, dance and music to share the gospel.

    The students presented the gospel at Swathmore College, Drexel University and Widener University. While some students prayerwalked around Swathmore College, others gave out coffee and informed people about their upcoming concert there. They also used the coffee ministry to inform people about The Foundry Church and opportunities to join in on the church’s Easter celebrations. The students raised money for the trip through writing letters to friends and families as well as a special coffeehouse performance.
