To Hickory Withe Presbyterian Church (PCA)


On behalf of the congregation of Hickory Withe Presbyterian Church, please allow me to welcome you to our church’s website. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our historic congregation.


As you will discover elsewhere on this site concerning our history, the Hickory Withe congregation has worshipped in this community since 1834. We give thanks to God for his faithfulness in sustaining us for almost two centuries now. And while we rejoice in our past, we also seek to bring the timeless gospel to our own generation with worship and witness that is focused on Christ and faithful to God’s Word found in Holy Scripture.


If you are looking for a church home or maybe you are simply interested in exploring the Christian faith, please consider attending one of our weekly opportunities for worship, teaching and fellowship. We worship every Sunday morning at 11:00 AM; we also have Sunday School weekly at 10:00 AM. On the second Sunday of every month, we enjoy a “pot-luck” style meal together immediately following worship. We also have Wednesday night activities beginning at 6:15 PM. First, we have a fellowship meal together and this is followed by a short time of prayer and Bible study.


I would love to meet you personally. Please feel free to call or e-mail me (see our Contact Page) if there are any questions you have about Hickory Withe Presbyterian Church. Also, if you have any spiritual needs or questions for which you need prayer or counsel, do not hesitate to call or write.


Yours in Christ,
Doug Barcroft
II Corinthians 4:7

spacerAfter crushing a Zealot revolution led by Barabbas, Clavius, a Roman Tribune, is appointed by Pontius Pilate to investigate the rumors of a risen Jewish Messiah. Pilate orders him to locate the missing body of Yeshua. In doing so, Pilate seeks to quell an imminent uprising in Jerusalem during the first 40 days following Christ's crucifixion.[4] Failing to secure Yeshua's body, Clavius attempts to locate his disciples for clues to his disappearance.

spacerDuring a raid through a Jewish enclave, Clavius unexpectedly discovers a seemingly resurrected Yeshua with his apostles in a solitary abode. Clavius calls off the search; he disperses his troops without revealing to them his personal encounter with the risen Yeshua. He later joins Yeshua and his followers on a journey to determine the validity of his mortal rejuvenation.

spacerPilate deduces that Clavius has apparently betrayed him, and dispatches a contingent of Roman troops to pursue him and Yeshua. Clavius assists the disciples in evading the Roman search party; he consequently witnesses the healing of a leper, and then the ascension of Yeshua into Heaven. Later, communicating his travels to a stranger in a remote dwelling, Clavius acknowledges the vivifying wisdom which he observed through Yeshua, feeling he will never be the same.
