Paradise Valley United Methodist Church
All-Church Conference Sunday
This Sunday, join us in the chapel at 12:15 pm for our All-Church Conference. This is our annual meeting that includes reports from the clergy and ministry teams, voting on new leaders for the 2019-2020 fiscal year and the unveiling of the budget.
Message from the Chair
Dear Friend in Faith,

No doubt you’ve heard the phrase “too many balls in the air”, an expression used to refer to the busyness in one’s life, when there are too many things competing for attention at the same time, often resulting in few, if any, being completed successfully.

That’s not the same as multi-tasking, which is simply trying to perform more than one activity at the same time, such as brushing your teeth and shaving while talking on the phone.

I’ve experienced busyness many times in my life and I’m betting you have too. I don’t have to think too far back to come up with an example, but that’s how I roll; I prefer the challenge of having things to do over the alternative. Why? ....
