We are excited to introduce “The Hickory” service as a part of our weekly worship experiences at Hickory UMC. The service will begin on September 16th at 6 pm. This will be an incredible opportunity to connect us with new families and most importantly allow us to share the Gospel and see new people come to Christ! However, we cannot do this with just a committee or one group of people. We need all hands on deck for this to be as amazing as possible. We have plenty of opportunities for you to serve at this service. Some positions we need to fill are Ushers, Greeters, Welcome Desk, Worship Team, Hospitality for Kids Ministry. The Lord has already established a great foundational team and we cannot wait to see what God is going to do through you! So join us and if you are interested, please connect with me by emailing me at email@example.com. Ryan Knight, The Hickory Worship Coordinator
