Hickory United Methodist Church participates in and organizes several missions. We know that "church" isn't just about what goes on inside the walls of our sanctuary, but how we help others around us - in our community and across the globe.
Good neighbor festival
The HUMC annual Good Neighbor Festival is a day of fellowship with food, crafts, a large yard sale, entertainment and more. All proceeds go to help needy families in the Hickory, Great Bridge and Moyock communities we serve.
City of hope, tanzania
Each year a small group of HUMC members travel across the globe to the City of Hope school and orphanage in Tanzania where they assist in building new facilities and working with these special children one-on-one. Our church continues to support their mission and future trips to Tanzania are in the works!
The United Methodist Men alongside many other HUMC members collect items for cleaning buckets to send to hurricane and disaster victims. This mission is held whenever disaster strikes our community and country. If you are interested in helping with this mission during a time of disaster, contact Clyde Harrell (Disaster Coordinator HUMC)

Chesapeake Avenue Food Pantry
The Chesapeake Avenue Food Pantry in South Norfolk is 100% supported by HUMC. This weekly food pantry is open to residents every Tuesday, and volunteers are needed on a weekly basis. Food drives including our fall food drive, Thanksgiving turkey drive, Christmas dinner drive and winter "Souper Bowl" canned soup drive all support Chesapeake Avenue. For information on how to volunteer contact Deborah Pallett at (757) 421-4412.
Autumn Care Nursing Home
Members of our congregation provide monthly worship and fellowship opportunities to the residents of Autumn Care Nursing Home off Butts Station Road in Chesapeake. Volunteers are needed each month to visit with the residents and assist with services.
