Our History


We welcome you to our Hickory Grove Baptist Church Nursery page. Childcare is provided during each of our worship services for children to age 3. While your child is in our nursery, trained workers and volunteers will care for your child. Parents always wonder what items they need to bring from home. Here is a list that will help you prepare to bring your child to church. Diapers and wipes - An extra set of clothes - Bottle or sippy cup - Child's comfort item (pacifier, blanket, etc.) - Alternate snack (only if your child cannot have the provided snacks.) Nursing Room For our nursing moms, we have a private Nursing Room for you to nurse your child. For help finding the Nursing Room, please ask the Nursery Coordinator. They will be happy to help show you our Nursing Room

Sunday School

Sunday School is the place where people connect. This is where people develop friendships, minister to one another, learn the Bible and fellowship. It's the place to ask questions and share your thoughts. It's the place where people learn from one another how the Lord is working in people's lives. Sunday School starts at 9:45 am and there is something for everyone. We have classes from Nursery age through Senior Adults. We have couples classes to men's and women's classes. People are in need of direction in their lives. They have learned that people are not always on the level with them. As a result, they often wonder if there really is any absolute truth in the world. The answer is a resounding YES. There is a truth that continues to prove itself faithful. That truth is the Bible. The Bible is the Word of God that leads people to a "saving" relationship with Jesus Christ.

At Hickory Grove Baptist Church we believe there is no greater privilege than to help children know, love and follow Jesus Christ. Children's Church Services for children in preschool through sixth grade are also held every Sunday morning. Children join the entire congregation for the start of the worship service, but are soon released to attend their own services. Children's Church Services are designed specifically to help our children continue to learn about and worship Christ Special events such as parties, outings, and camps are also held throughout the year. It is our desire to help children know, love, and serve Jesus Christ. If you have any questions about or children's ministry please feel free to contact Kris Wardlaw, our Children's Minister, through our Contact Us page.

For over 100 years, Hickory Grove has faithfully served Jesus and shared Him with others as He commanded. The congregation has always been mission-minded, giving financially and personally to foreign, national and local projects. Annual events such as Vacation Bible School and Fall Fest have always been open to the whole community. In 2011 it was recognized with a Texas Heritage plaque for its 100 years of service.
