Message From Our Rector

"Finding a church home is challenging.  You want a place where you can be yourself, where you can bring your doubts, questions, and concerns, where you can be inspired and uplifted, and where you can find a greater purpose.  Hickory Neck Episcopal Church does that and so much more.  After you've taken some time to get to know us through our website, I hope you'll come and meet us in person.  You are welcome here!"

- The Reverend Jennifer Andrews-Weckerly

Parish Life

At Hickory Neck we really enjoy each other's company, and find many ways to gather outside of Sunday worship.  The Parish Life committee is very active throughout the year with a wide range of support minstries that are vital to the health and happiness of our community.

Helping those in need in our local community has become a vital part of the work of Hickory Neck parishioners.  A large number of members are involved in some form of outreach.  We support more than a dozen local charities in one way or another.
