New Hymnals

The Worship and Music Team is excited to announce that Glory to God: The Presbyterian Hymnal (2013) will make its debut at Unity on Sunday, August 19, replacing the blue hymnals dating from 1990. This hymnal contains 853 hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs. About 400 carry over from the blue hymnal, and 450 are new hymns from various sources. Over the next few weeks, the newsletter will feature articles about the process that went into creating the new hymnal, styles of music found in the new hymnal, and the theology and organization of the new hymnal.

We will continue to use the blue hymnals in the Historic Sanctuary. Copies of our current hymnal bearing nameplates in honor 0f or in memory of loved ones will be made available to those who donated them. Remaining hymnals will be donated to any church in the Presbytery that has need of them. We will keep copies of Sing the Faith, but our need for it will be reduced, as many favorites are found in the new hymnal.

  • Cost to donate a Glory to God hymnal in honor of or in memory of a loved one is $20.
  • Donated hymnals will be marked with a nameplate.
  • Donation forms can be found online on the Unity website, in the narthex, or in the church office

Completed forms and donation checks may be placed in the Sunday collection plates, mailed to or dropped off at the church office, or completed electronically below.
