Important Notice Regarding Pine Grove Services & Activities:
On Saturday, December 12, 2020, the Covid task force met by zoom. Out of an abundance of caution, much prayer, and consideration it was decided  in efforts to be safe and responsible we will suspend all In person events, meetings and  worship effective now until further notice.
 We will continue our virtual worship at 11 am each Sunday on Zoom & FaceBook.  We will continue conversations about varied worship opportunities for The future.
We will have a drive through “Poke Bags” pickup at 4:00 pm tomorrow Sunday, December 13.
We will have our drive through Christmas Eve Love Feast service on Thursday, December 24 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm
       This decision is not made lightly. We have several families in our church affected by Covid as well as many who are susceptible to Covid which prompted this action. Please continue to be in prayer for our community, our healthcare providers, and those affected by this virus.

Yours in Christ,
Pastor Ron

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.
