Hickory Grove Missionary Baptist Church
Hickory Grove Missionary Baptist Church is a historically traditional black church that is located in the rural area of Chapel Hill. It has a rich history that began with just a few people in a one-room log cabin, with one window, no floor, yet our ancestors were honored to call that building... their “Church.” When considering that the church began only ten years after slavery, it symbolized and was a testament of their strong faith in God and their resolve to be bound together by love. Over the 144 years of being in existence, Hickory Grove Missionary Baptist Church has had only six pastors which is a remarkable feat within itself. Although the dynamics of the church has changed, we continue to strive to be authentic, hope-givers, love-extenders and surrendered to the powerful way God wants to feed and lead us as we go into the highways and by-ways to bring others to Christ.
