  • Pastoral Prayer – Rev. Val
  • Offertory – Rev. Val
  • Benediction – Rev. Val


There is no transcript for this week’s worship service. For those not familiar with this type of service, it is comprised entirely of hymns. A list of favorite hymns of the congregation was collected, compiled, and then given to our pianist, Michael Stinnett, who chose hymns from the list. We hope you enjoy hearing these traditional hymns. 


  • Hymn sings are not possible without a skilled accompaniest. We have one of the best and are indebted to Union Grove member Michael Stinnett for his service.
  • All hymns were selected from the United Methodist Hymnal or the Cokesbury Hymnal.
  • All piano arrangements courtesy of Michael Stinnet.
