Welcome to Mesa Verde United Methodist Church!
Thanks for visiting us online.
We are a caring and accepting family of seekers, believers, and doubters. We are united in knowing we love one another and that God loves us. We are open to everyone—those with questions, those looking for a spiritual home, and those with faith stories to tell. We believe in growing in grace, having fellowship and fun, and in making a difference in the world.
Mesa Verde UMC is a reconciling church. We affirm that through God's redeeming love for all, we are one in Christ. We respect the inherent and valuable contributions each member makes to the body of Christ. We celebrate our diversity and recognize the sacred worth and dignity of all persons regardless of sexual orientation, gender identification, race, age, ethnicity, physical or mental capacity, education, or economic or marital status.

UMW Birthday Luncheon Tables Still Available
UMW has been putting on a birthday luncheon for more than 50 years. Six tables are still in need of expert and creative attention. Decorate one with thge help of friends and family. Make it a family table. If you need help with ideas, supplies, props, or would like to book a table, contact Margaret Dean.
UMW Boutique Coming This Fall
Have you missed what used to be our semi-annual UMW boutique? You know, the place you go to get the best Christmas gifts, be they crafts or goodies? Well, it's back! This year's boutique will be held Oct. 9 and 10. UMW women are looking for your input, contrubutions, and support. For more information, contact Cherie Korando.
Sign Up For Amazon Smile!
There is a new way to donate to Mesa Verde United Methodist Church–by shopping with Amazon. When you sign up, Amazon donates a portion of what you spend to our church! It costs nothing and signing up is simple.
Go to https://smile.amazon.com and sign in using your existing Amazon user name and password. If you’re not already an Amazon shopper you can create them. You will log on and be able to choose MVUMC as your charity. Choose us by typing in Mesa Verde United Methodist Church. If you use the standard amazon.com link your shopping will not benefit MVUMC, so be sure to change your bookmark or favorites link to https://smile.amazon.com.
You will be on the full Amazon.com website, but in the upper left corner of your screen it will say, “Supporting Mesa Verde United Methodist Church.” Now you can support the church simply by buying what you want online!
Bible Study Led by Pastor Brent
Pastor Brent leads a weekly (more or less) Bible study on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 am. Everyone is invited. We meet in the conference room in the Administration Building.
Sunday School children should go into church first thing for a Moments with Children. Then they will go to their classes.
We Need Your Old Eyeglasses!
UMW needs your old prescription eyeglasses to pass on to the Lions Club who then distributes them to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact. There is a box in the fellowhip hall entrance specifically for these items.
Prayer Request Cards
Green prayer request cards are available on Sunday mornings in the seat pockets of the chairs. You are welcome to fill out your prayer requests in order that they may become a part of the prayers of the community. Your prayer requests can also be communicated with the office in this way so that they will be included in the prayer chain.
The new flower chart is up in the narthex. Please sign up to put flowers on the altar. Fresh cut flowers from your own garden (no, you can't pick the neighbors' blooms) are welcome!
Brown Bag Food Distribution Program
Mesa Verde UMC is honored to be part of Second Harvest's Brown Bag program. It is open to seniors 60 and over whose income does not exceed $1,354/mo. per person or $1,821/mo. per couple.

Grocery Sacks Needed for Brown Bag Program
We are in need of standard grocery store paper bags for the Brown Bag Program. Please drop them off in the kitchen or the church office.
We need greeters! Please take a moment to sign up on the bulletin board on the patio this Sunday!
