Hickory Grove impacted our community this weekend through the +1 Initiative Local Missions Day and Disaster Relief Training. Over 100 volunteers reached out in five areas of service. Here is a report and gallery from this weekend:
Lois Lodge – 18 volunteers assisted at the Walk-a Thon for the Maternity Home. The praise team One Voice entertained while the others assisted with a bake sale, manned a bouncy house for kids and walked.
Hickory Grove Elementary School – 40 volunteers assisted with installing mulch, pine needles, flowers, trimmed shrubs, repair fencing, picnic tables, and garden boxes to beautify the grounds.
Car Care – 7 men volunteered at the Car Care Ministry and repaired 18 cars of single moms. The Gospel was shared twice and 1 accepted Christ!
Clothes Closet – 10 volunteers assisted with the clothes closet and 35 people from the community visited the “closet”.
Disaster Relief – 30 volunteers from Hickory Grove were trained in administration, recovery, medical and feeding to be prepared for disaster relief.[vimeo 40835423 w=550 h=364]
