Flower Arrangements

Flower arrangements have returned to our worship services. The cost to sponsor Altar Flowers remains $40 per arrangement.

To order an arrangement, email Ryan at communications@gvumc.org by Monday
(please feel free to order in advance if you wish).
Then, the requested flowers can be included in Sunday services. Remember, please include your name with the request as well as any dedication message you wish to make in sponsoring these flowers.
There is a two-per-week limit on floral arrangements.

Please, send payment to the church office at 2200 Robindale Road, Henderson, NV 89074 or give online and designate "Flowers - Altar". The Worship Committee is thankful that there is a way to include flowers for our weekly service. Questions or suggestions regarding the committee's effort to include flowers in services should be sent to Flower Coordinator Greg Graessley, stuntskip@att.net.


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.


Visitation Ministry

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 to be visited by phone calls until we can meet in person.

Sharing the Story



This Week's Scripture Verse

John 1:35-49
 
The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, “Look, here is the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated
Anointed). He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas” (which is translated Peter). The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him about whom Moses in the law and
also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” When Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him, he said of him, “Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!” Nathanael asked him, “Where did you get to know me?” Jesus answered, “I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.” Nathanael replied, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”

The author's conversational style and use of well-known hymn texts will engage you in this energizing Lenten study. You'll discover how you can be the hands of Christ in the world.  See Lent as your opportunity to become involved in acts of mercy and compassion.God thinks the world is worth saving. When we are close to God, we too will want to save the world.
