This Week's Scripture Verse

Mark 4:35-41
On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm.
 He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?”
 And they were filled with great awe and said to one another,
“Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

Looking for Ways to Serve at GVUMC?

We are looking for volunteers in various areas of ministry.

Sticker Removal
All the vinyl lettering with the old worship times on the windows around the church campus needs to be removed. This can be done with a window scraper tool. Not a particularly strenuous job but there are many to remove!

Hospitality Volunteers
We need a cadre of folks (men and women - families too)
to welcome folks as they arrive for worship.
Welcome Desk attendees
Fellowship Coffee Coordinator

Do you enjoy the Holy Scriptures? Have a willingness to prepare and then share the readings to the congregation? We are adding folks to our list of liturgists for the coming season.

Help guide people to their seat during worship hours and help with monthly communion.

PowerPoint Operators
Are you interested in changing the slides in our presentation during our worship hours? Help to keep the hymn lyrics moving and share the scripture text as it is read!
No experience is necessary, just have a working button pushing finger!

We are looking for anyone interested in running the sound board during worship and also assisting and learning about operating the live stream. No experience is required!
Just a willingness to learn!

If you are interested in serving in any of the ways listed above, or have another gift you would like to share that may be a blessing, please email
or call the church office: 702-454-7989.

Friends In The Desert Update

The number of volunteers working for GVUMC's Friends in the Desert team

Friends in the Desert is a ministry that helps feed the homeless and working poor in the city of Henderson. GVUMC has been involved with this ministry for over ten years. Through this ministry, home cooked meals are brought to St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in downtown Henderson, and as many as 60 to 80 people of all ages (including children) are served by GV volunteers once a week, four times a month. 

If you would like to volunteer preparing meals please contact Betty Kaminski: 702-712-9545
