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

Our Ministries

Working toward a better world!


The worship at Hickory Neck is joyous!  Whether in the quiet of the candlelit Christmas Eve midnight Mass or the moving celebration of the Great Vigil of Easter, these ministries ensure our parishioners are well-fed through our Sunday worship services.

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.

Buildings & Grounds

Hickory Neck is blessed to have three lovely buildings located on a 12 acre campus.   We are fortunate to have many  parishioners who willingly give of their time to keep the grounds beautiful and our buildings safe and in good condition.

Outreach is responsible for seeing needs within our community and then building the bridges that provide the means for our Parishioners to actively engage with those communities and each other to help resolve those needs.  We support numerous local charities, participate in and organize activities, as well as contribute time, talent, and treasure from funds raised through donations and festivals.
