This Week's Scripture Verse

Mark 5:21-42
A swarm of people were following Jesus, crowding in on him. A woman was there who had been bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a lot under the care of many doctors, and had spent everything she had without getting any better. In fact, she had gotten worse. Because she had heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his clothes. She was thinking, If I can just touch his clothes, I’ll be healed. Her bleeding stopped immediately, and she sensed in her body that her illness had been healed. At that very moment, Jesus recognized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” His disciples said to him, “Don’t you see the crowd pressing against you? Yet you ask, ‘Who touched me?’” But Jesus looked around carefully to see who had done it.
 The woman, full of fear and trembling, came forward. Knowing what had happened to her, she fell down in front of Jesus and told him the whole truth.
He responded, “Daughter, your faith has healed you; go in peace, healed from your disease.”

Children's and Youth Ministries Update!

Hey y’all!
My name is Megan Gilley. I am the youth director here at GVUMC and starting in July,
I will be leading children’s ministries as well. I am so grateful for this honor,
but most importantly blessed to be taking on this expanded roll.

I appreciate everyone’s patience while we have navigated distance worship during the pandemic and continued regulations. It has been challenging and there will be growing pains ahead,
but I am excited and ready for the start.
It is a new journey and I can’t wait to be on it with all of our wonderful families.

I am looking for any and all volunteers!
You may currently email me at or text (702) 768-5568.

Sunday School will be in-person at 9:30 am!

In addition we will be transitioning from Pastor Mary's Time at the Steps 
to Children’s Time in the Chapel during both worship hours - we will need two adult volunteers
for ten minutes during each service to assist with this!

Email/text to sign up for July!

Now Enrolling for Fall 2021!!
Please call 702-405-2952 for more information
