Hickory Grove Baptist Church youth from the Charlotte area offer coffee to passersby (driving and walking) during their recent spring break.

“This break will be different from normal,” said Ashley

Reed, 14. “But I think it’s worth so much more to spend my time reaching

out to people in need.”

Projects included serving at a food bank, a pregnancy

resource center, and clothes closet; giving food to college students, providing

coffee at a train station, and coordinating programs for the neighborhood

children and students.

Christ in Action, based on Matthew 28:19, is a student-led

worship ministry at Hickory Grove for sixth- through 12th-graders.

The ministry uses drama, dance and music to share the


The students presented the gospel at Swathmore College,

Drexel University and Widener University. While some students prayerwalked

around Swathmore College, others gave out coffee and informed people about

their upcoming concert there. They also used the coffee ministry to inform

people about The Foundry Church and opportunities to join in on the church’s

Easter celebrations. The students raised money for the trip through writing

letters to friends and families as well as a special coffeehouse performance.
