Donated by the Simmons Family- Happy Birthday Patricia Simmons

WITH HEARTFELT APPRECIATION:  I would like to thank everyone for your prayers, cards, gifts and encouraging words over this holiday season.  Gifts, words and actions show the kindness and heart of the giver, and many of you have shared yours with me and my family, and we thank you.  May God continue to bless all of you and multiply your kindness in return.  With much love, Pastor

PROCLAIMING GOD’S WORD: How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7  We are blessed once again, as Pastor Worthen begins her next semester of Residency at Union to welcome a fellow colleague, and minister of the Gospel.  Rev. Dr. G. Martin Young, Union student and Recruiter and Faculty Mentor at United Theological Seminary will be the guest speaker here at New Vision, Sunday, January 14, 2018.  Bring in the New Year right as we hear a mighty Word proclaimed by this dynamic and anointed speaker.

CHARGE CONFERENCE:    New vision will be having a Charge Conference on Sunday, January 21 immediately following worship service…  Please plan to be present for this important meeting.

BIBLE STUDY:  There will be no Tuesday morning or evening Bible Study for the next two weeks.  We will resume on Tuesday, January 16th.  There will also be no Sunday morning Bible Study following service for the next three weeks.  We will resume Sunday, February 4th due to conflict after service.  We pray you had a merry Christmas and are wishing you a blessed and happy new year!
