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 RedCrossBlood.org and enter the Sponsor Code: GVUnitedMethodistHenderson

or call Lynn Dunn at 702-435-1662.
Her phone number is also in the church directory.

How Many Times Do You Forgive?


Sunday's Gospel continues with Jesus helping his followers understand the Rule of Love. Peter brings up the subject of forgiveness to Jesus.  Like many of us, Peter is hoping there's a limit to forgiving someone.
Jesus, however, thinks otherwise.  
I pray that during our time of worship this Sunday we begin to understand that the ultimate way to a peace-filled Beloved Community, both locally and globally, is forgiveness. But please know that forgiveness does not erase accountability - rather as Bishop Desmond Tutu reminds us in his book, Book of Forgiving: "Forgiveness is about understanding that every one of us is both inherently good and inherently flawed. Within every hopeless situation and every seemingly hopeless person lies the possibility of transformation.”
I look forward to worshipping online with you this week!

This Week's Scripture Verse

Matthew 18:21-35

Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times. “For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. When he began the reckoning, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him; and, as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, together with his wife and children and all his possessions, and payment to be made. So the slave fell on his knees before him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.’ And out of pity for him, the lord of that slave released him and forgave him the debt. But that same slave, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat, he said, ‘Pay what you owe.’ Then his fellow slave fell down and pleaded with him, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you.’ But he refused; then he went and threw him into prison until he would pay the debt. When his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. Then his lord summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked slave! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. Should you not have had mercy on your fellow slave, as I had mercy on you?’ And in anger his lord handed him over to be tortured until he would pay his entire debt. So my heavenly Father will also do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”

Quick Announcement Summary

Church Campus closed until further notice!

Friends in the Desert are still assisting St Timothy per the guidelines set. Please pray for the special people as they continue their mission!


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.
