Latest Update from Bishop Bob.
IMPORTANT: Email Fraud
Once again, many people have received emails from someone claiming to be Pastor Mary, asking individuals to purchase gift cards or asking for other help.
If you receive a suspicious looking email please check the email address from where it was sent
to help check it it is genuinely from Pastor Mary.
Pastor Mary will only ever use the following two addresses:
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please join us at 7pm tonight for our Candle Light Christmas Eve time of Worship. We have many guests who have come to share their gifts to bring you this special time of worship.
This coming Sunday at 9:30am we will enjoy a special time of Lessons and Carols that has been put together by churches throughout our district (including GVUMC!)

Spiritual Formation Classes - Winter Term
After listening to the sermon have you ever said: "That was really interesting, I'd like to talk more about it." Now is your chance. Beginning January 3rd Pastor Mary will be preaching a series of sermons about what it means to be a United Methodist. Topics will include: A Disciples Path, Prayers and Scripture Meditation, Corporate Worship and Small-group Community, Utilizing Our Gifts, and How to Witness. The series will examine how we grow as followers of Jesus Christ. The book being used to guide this class is : "A Disciples Path: A Guide for United Methodists" by James A. Harnish with Justin Larosa. The book can be purchased through Amazon or any religious book web site. To accommodate a large number of people there will be two sections of the class. The first section will be lead by Troy and Jill Moser and the other section will be lead by Duane Smith. To sign-up contact them by email. Troy and Jill (email@example.com). Duane (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please sign up soon as space is limited.

We are excited to offer some great classes to help members grow in their faith and feel closer to our God. Spaces will be limited because of the Zoom format so please sign up as soon as possible.
