Back to School Parade

Saturday August 22,
at 6pm!

We are throwing a reverse drive through parade for our children, teachers, and school staff before they head back to school! 

We would love for the congregation to join us!
Please arrive between 5:30pm and 5:45pm and park in every other space in the parking lot.

Please wear a mask and be sure to stay in your space. You are welcome to bring a lawn chair and sit behind your car. We invite you to make signs that say “we love you”, “God bless you”, “back to school”, etc. Then families and school staff  will drive thru the parade route and stop at a designated location for prayer and goodies from Pastor Mary, Ms. Megan and Ms. Karin.
The parade route will be available
from 6-7 pm.

We are looking forward to blessing our community as they start a very different school year.  Invite your friends and neighbors to come be "on the route" or to come drive thru and be blessed.  

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 visited by phone calls until we can meet in person.

NCG Update

On Monday evening Nevadans for the Common Good (NCG) held a workshop on Housing and the Economy with the Guinn Center (a think tank at UNLV).  We learned that when the moratorium on evictions ends at the end of this month, more than 300,00 households could be at risk. Our response was “overwhelming”. However, we have been here before and we are not ready to give up.
We need first for people to be aware and care about this issue, secondly, if you or you know someone that is being affected by this crises, we need their stories. NCG does not just rely on statistics we want to hear what people are actually going through, Third, if you are interested in working on this issue we are developing a taskforce that needs as many people as possible (our institution is a member of NCG so you are considered a member as well), fourth, when the time comes we need your voice to send emails and/or make telephone calls to those that are in a position to legislate help for those in this crises, and finally, of course we need your prayers for our community and the work of NCG to continue to help the common good.

If you have any questions please contact,
Robin Collins,
or NCG,

September Blood Drive

GVUMC is sponsoring a Red Cross blood drive on Friday, September 25, 1:00 - 6:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall.

There is a constant need for a regular blood supply because blood can be stored for only a limited time for use. All of the blood donated is sent to local hospitals. Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person - the gift of life.

To schedule an appointment, go online to
or call Lynn Dunn at 702-435-1662.
Her phone number is also in the church directory.

What's Our Purpose?
Why Are We Here? 

Some of us have gotten very lost in thought about our purpose on earth - The "Why are we here?" questions can be debated and debated. During this week's worship we will explore this question through our songs, the scriptures, the sermon and even our prayers. We will look again at Jesus's first message in his hometown synagogue. It's in this message we hear Jesus' life purpose and we learn our life purpose as well. In spite of the many changes we are experiencing today our purpose remains the same.
Hope you join us.

This Weeks Scripture Verse

Luke 4:14-30

Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news about him spread throughout the whole countryside. He taught in their synagogues and was praised by everyone. Jesus went to Nazareth, where he had been raised. On the Sabbath he went to the synagogue as he normally did and stood up to read. The synagogue assistant gave him the scroll from the prophet Isaiah. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me. He has sent me to preach good news to the poor, to proclaim release to the prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, to liberate the oppressed, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. He rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the synagogue assistant, and sat down. Every eye in the synagogue was fixed on him. He began to explain to them, “Today, this scripture has been fulfilled just as you heard it.” Everyone was raving about Jesus, so impressed were they by the gracious words flowing from his lips. They said, “This is Joseph’s son, isn’t it?” Then Jesus said to them,“Undoubtedly, you will quote this saying to me: ‘Doctor, heal yourself. Do here in your hometown what we’ve heard you did in Capernaum.’” He said, “I assure you that no prophet is welcome in the prophet’s hometown. And I can assure you that there were many widows in Israel during Elijah’s time, when it didn’t rain for three and a half years and there was a great food shortage in the land. Yet Elijah was sent to none of them but only to a widow in the city of Zarephath in the region of Sidon. There were also many persons with skin diseases in Israel during the time of the prophet Elisha, but none of them were cleansed. Instead, Naaman the Syrian was cleansed.” When they heard this, everyone in the synagogue was filled with anger. They rose up and ran him out of town. They led him to the crest of the hill on which their town had been built so that they could throw him off the cliff. But he passed through the crowd and went on his way.
