May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing unto you, O Lord, our Rock, and Redeemer. Amen.

Current Series & Worship Information


Beginning September 4, 2022, we’ll be learning from scriptures and other sources those practices and disciplines used and taught by Christ, the early disciples, and other esteemed faith leaders throughout history. Working from the Bible and the books Soul Feast: An Invitation to the Christian Spiritual Life (Marjorie J. Thompson; Newly Revised Edition; Westminster John Knox Press) and Formation In Faith: The Congregational Ministry of Making Disciples (Sondra Higgins Matthaei; Abingdon Press), Rev. Val will lead us through this 10-week series on forming and growing our lives in Christ.

Worship starts at 11 a.m. ET in-person at 1151 Lane Drive, Friendsville, TN, or you can join us through our live cast on Facebook. You don’t have to be a member to attend worship. We have communion each Sunday and ALL are welcome at the Lord’s Table at Union Grove! If you’re joining us from home, we encourage you to have juice and bread available for sharing communion with your household.

If you are joining us in-person, we encourage you to stick around for our after-worship fellowship. We’ll be enjoying various pastries and other baked goods, coffee, tea, and more at “Crumpets & Crafts!”
