Latest Update from Bishop Bob.
In light of our governor's directive we will not be meeting in person in the coming weeks.
In addition, all small group meetings - committees and others will not be able to meet.
If you have any questions please leave a messag
for Ryan or myself and we will return your call.
Grace and Peace,
Have You Given Jesus Something To Eat?
Sunday is Christ the King Sunday
We will look at the Matthew 25 parable about the goats and the sheep meet King Jesus. I pray that Sunday's Worship hour reminds us that God loves all of us and desires that we treat one another with kindness and respect without seeking reciprocity.
Moises Sol along with Jody Porter will lead us in music
and Ash Dotson will be our liturgist.
Get your Christ Candle ready for a time of worship!
New Sunday Service Time!
Live Stream service begins at 9:30am Sundays!
Stream starts 15 minutes before start time.

This Week's Scripture Verse
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to
drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you
something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ Then he will say to those at his left hand, ‘You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ Then they also will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?’ Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Online Memorial Page
Losing a member of our church family is always difficult, but during the current pandemic and time of separation it has become harder to share our grief, share stories and celebrate life as a church community.
We have created an online memorial board and we invite everyone to please share your memories, stories and/or photos of church members who have passed.
Click HERE to go to the online memorial board
We hope this online memorial board will help bring us together as a community and not only share our grief, but help celebrate the life of the members who have been a vital part of the GVUMC community.
Although we cannot visit in person, please let the church office know if you or a family member are in the hospital so we on the visitation team can uplift you in prayer as well as visit by phone.
We on the visitation team also reach out to those who feel isolated at home, in assisted living, or in nursing homes.
Call the church office or Lynn Dunn at 702-435-1662 so we are aware of who would like visited by phone calls until we can meet in person.
If any committee or group would like to make an announcement to everyone who receives this newsletter, please email ANNOUNCEMENT PLEASE no later than Tuesday evenings.
