Pahrump Valley United Methodist Church installs new signs!
July 1, 2018. Whenever someone asked me where I went to church I would tell them at Pahrump Valley United Methodist Church. They would always ask, “Where is that?”. I would explain it is the church on the corner of Pahrump Valley Boulevard and Highway 372, which would still draw a blank look. I continued, “across the street from Big O Tires (now Drew’s Tires)”. After much explaining, I would get the “Ah Ha” moment letting me know they did know where I went to church. This must have happened to so many other people, including the Pastor. Even though our church was built in 1985 and is in a prominent location on the corner of a busy intersection people had no idea it was the Pahrump Valley United Methodist Church. It was beige and blended in. Thankfully, a decision was made to have signs placed on all four sides of our church, which are very visible and identifies our church very vividly. Now, I hope when I tell people where I go to church either they will already be going or know where our church is located! Written by Laurie Wilson, church member.
