Hymnal Revision Committee Seeks New Material

November 02, 2018

The Liturgical Resources subgroup of the Hymnal Revision Committee seeks the submission of new materials for possible inclusion in the next United Methodist Hymnal.

The collection of liturgical and music resources will be presented to the 2024 General Conference for approval. While all worship-related resources are welcome at any time, the Committee particularly invites the submission of resources for the following between November 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019: 

  • Baptism 
  • Confirmation 
  • Renewal of Baptism 
  • Days and Seasons of the Church Year 

If at all possible, please submit material electronically. Instructions for submission may be found here:  www.umph.org/thenewumhymnal/Submissions 

The hymnal office will acknowledge receipt of all submissions but will not return any hard copy of materials submitted. If materials are chosen for inclusion in the new United Methodist Hymnal, the hymnal office will contact the submitter regarding permissions and contracts at the appropriate time. 

In future years, there will be specific requests for submissions related to: care of the sick and dying, death, and occasional services (2019); Word and Table and the Psalter (2020); and weddings, domestic liturgy, and daily prayer (2021).
