There are so many interesting facts about the two western states, Nevada and Utah, that are part of our Pacific Union Conference—but our Adventist history is even more interesting!
This week in All God’s People, learn about the impact of John Loughborough, D.T. Bourdeau, Charles M. Kinney, and others on Adventism in Nevada and Utah. The Nevada-Utah Conference was organized in 1931, with 315 members and 12 churches in Nevada. Today, there are 10,555 members, a total of 63 congregations, and eight schools in Nevada and Utah.

Masked Heroes in the NUC—
The schools of the Nevada-Utah Conference are taking safety seriously as they endeavor to teach their students to be “Masked Heroes” who follow the Golden Rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” For instance, students from Mrs. Beddoe’s class at Riverview Christian Academy created an art composition depicting their students as these masked heroes.

Summit Christian Academy Hosts Glittery Germ Experiment—
Recently, Ms. McCaw’s 3rd and 4th Grade Class at Summit Christian Academy were able to see how germs spread quickly as well as the importance of careful hand washing in a demonstration using glitter, lotion, soap, and water. What a great lesson at this time, when the importance of good hand hygiene matters so much!

Extensive policies have been implemented to ensure that the students in the Nevada-Utah Conference have both online and in-person options for learning—and also a safe space to learn how to be like Jesus.
Virtual Fellowship in the Nevada-Utah Conference—
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nevada-Utah Conference has held more than a dozen different conference-wide, virtual events. This includes a virtual convocation, graduation, communion, and camporee!
During the conference-wide convocation and graduation, they were able to celebrate the work of their churches and students. The virtual communion provided a unique opportunity to talk about communion, discuss its importance, and celebrate this special service as a conference family. The virtual camporee gave the Pathfinders and Adventurers a time to fellowship with their families while doing special crafts and activities.
Church and conference leaders from a territory that covers over 200,000 square miles have been able to coordinate, in the Spirit of Lord, to bring these events together. In spite of these trying times, the churches and members of the Nevada-Utah Conference feel closer than ever as they continue to fellowship, virtually, during these special events.
