Special Blessings Took Place on Sunday November 29, 2020!
The David Hinson Memorial Endowment Committee of Pine Grove United Methodist Church was able to give two Scholarship checks and one Medical check in the amount of $1,000 each. 
The recipients were:
                                   Trevor James Davis
                                   Cody Morgan Davis
                                   Elizabeth Byrd Basinger
The Hinson Endowment was established in 2009 in memory of David Hinson by Pine Grove UMC members.  Money from  the Endowment is to be used for scholarships for church members, assistance with catastrophic medical expenses, and community missions.  For more information contact Pastor Ron Hartman.

2021 Master Church Calendar

Administrative Council will meet in January to create a Master Church Calendar for the 2021 year.  We need your help.  If you are a committee chairperson, involved in outside ministries, lead a group here, hold an event, have regular scheduled meetings, or want to see us carry out an event, NOW IS THE TIME to get it scheduled!  We understand that any events are considered tentative, but believe it will be worthwhile to have this calendar from which to plan.  Please have your information to Nancy L Burleson at office@pinegroveumcalbemarle.orgnot later thanJanuary 3, 2021.  Thank you for working to make this task meaningful for us all!

Thank you.
