Local Mission Opportunities

Below is a list of all Local Missions opportunities and groups that Hickory Grove Baptist Church partners with. If your Sunday school class would like to host an LLP contact dawnmorton@hgbc.org for more information.

Latin American Campus Food Pantry serves anyone in the community needing food items on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 AM -12 PM.  The pantry is supplied through donations and volunteers help to sort and distribute the food. This ministry is designed to assist families experiencing financial crisis with nonperishable food items.

Laundry Love The idea behind the Laundry Love Project is simple: meet a physical need so you can meet a spiritual one. Laundry Love Projects are regular opportunities to help people who are struggling financially by assisting them with doing their laundry. These events provide us avenues for outreach within our community that we would not otherwise have.

CRUISE Ministry is a Christian group of riders and motorcycle enthusiasts who have united in order to serve people and to present the Good News of Jesus Christ through Evangelism. We are committed to serving in the local community through various ministries that will serve their spiritual needs and physical needs.
CUP Ministry is a food and clothing ministry that serves anyone living in Mecklenburg County.  Our mission is to meet people at their point of need and allow The Power of GOD to transform their lives. By giving away free food and clothing, doors are opened to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Hearts & Hammers Ministry Their mission based upon 1John 3:16-18 is to use time and talents to meet the physical needs of those around us to create an opportunity to share our faith in Jesus Christ. We will perform household repairs free of charge for those who cannot afford it, and for those who can afford to pay for materials, we will provide labor at no charge.  Physical needs will be met in order to inquire about the spiritual needs.
Whisper of Hope Ministries, Inc. is a ministry which seeks Gods will in meeting the physical and spiritual needs of God’s children in the U.S. and abroad by feeding, clothing, and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through witnessing, discipling and distributing bibles.

We are also giving help and hope to needy families in Charlotte and surrounding communities by sharing the love of Jesus with food and clothing. We are seeing Jesus transform both families and children.  Every year, Hickory Grove provides Jackson Park with Christmas gifts which are given to needy children right here in the community.

Urban Restoration is Charlotte’s premiere outreach ministry to children and youth living in Charlotte’s poorest communities.  Since 1993 thousands of inner city children and youth have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and have gone on to lead lives that honor God!   Every year, Hickory Grove Baptist provides the Urban Restoration over 300 Christmas gifts which are given to needy children right here in our community!

    I would like to give my time to a ministry that can also involve my two young boys. Something locally would be great with a heart for international sometime in the future. Is there a ministry that we can get involved in as a family?

      Two good starting points for you and your family are The Cup Ministry and The Latin American Food Pantry. All of our local ministries are good depending on your children’s age. Feel free to contact the Missions Office 704-531-4028 and we can help plug you into the right ministry.

    Is there a place that gives more information about how to get involved with these individual opportunities? I’m particular interested in the Laundry Love or Whispers of Hope Ministries. Thanks for the help!
