Angel Tree


Virtual Angel Tree is up now at: www.gvumc.org/angeltree

Each year, prisoners complete applications through their prison chaplain’s registry for their children to be included in Prison Fellowship’s Angel Tree program. Thanks to the Angel Tree program, children receive Christmas presents from their incarcerated parents. Last year over 600,000 children from across the country received gifts from their incarcerated parents thanks to volunteers.  Along with the gifts, each child receives an age-appropriate booklet with a clear Gospel message inside.
Green Valley UMC will  be participating in Angel Tree again this year.  The virtual tree will be set up on the website from November 1 through December 1  We will be sponsoring 77 children. Each child will have two ornaments - one listing a clothing item, the other with their wish for a toy or other “fun” item.  You will have the opportunity to select one of the virtual angels and purchase the requested gift. We are asking that you spend no more than $25. The gifts need to be returned to the church by Sunday, December 13 or earlier so they can be delivered to the children on Saturday, Dec. 19 and Sunday, Dec. 20. Gifts are given in the name of the parent in prison, but with the understanding that this was made possible through Angel Tree and Green Valley UMC.
This is a great way for us to help families in our local community.

How to Wait



How do you feel about waiting? 
This Sunday we will be exploring how to wait as faithful followers of Jesus. I encourage you to read the Matthew scripture below and meditate on this parable.
Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you as you sit with this picture of the reign of God.

This Week's Scripture Verse

Matthew 25:1-13
“Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise replied, ‘No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut. Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I do not know you.’ Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

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 visited by phone calls until we can meet in person.



If any committee or group would like to make an announcement to everyone who receives this newsletter, please email ANNOUNCEMENT PLEASE no later than Tuesday evenings.
