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.

Staying Safe/Staying Connected...
We are missing YOU!

Baby Antoinette Cromer will help us each week focus on how she is keeping healthy with her Mommy and Daddy, Mason and Anne. If you would send a picture of how you are keeping healthy and staying safe it will help us all connect and smile as we continue to follow our quarantine expectations.

We would love to include how you are staying safe!

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.

This Weeks Scripture Verse

Matthew 16:13-20

Now when Jesus came to the area of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.” He said, “And what about you? Who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Then Jesus replied, “Happy are you, Simon son of Jonah, because no human has shown this to you. Rather my Father who is in heaven has shown you.  I tell you that you are Peter. And I’ll build my church on this rock. The gates of the underworld won’t be able to stand against it. I’ll give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Anything you fasten on earth will be fastened in heaven. Anything you loosen on earth will be loosened in heaven.” Then he ordered the disciples not to tell anybody that he was the Christ.
