WE NOW HAVE CASH APP AT NEW VISIONCash App allows people to pay for things without using checks or credit cards.   We are now set up to use it.  It is only set up to receive cash, not allow requests for cash.  After downloading the App on your phone, you can set it up to use it. The Cash App name for the church is $newvisionumcreading.  People can search for this listing in Cash App to make their donations and payments.  When we receive these contributions, we will handle them like we do our online contributions.  We will create an envelope for them and give them to our Financial Secretary for recording.  She will be able to verify them with the bank account information.   Please make sure you complete the information on what the purpose is for your donation.  If there are any questions about this procedure, please feel free to contact Kathye Lewis Norman. We hope that you will find this as a way to make your contributions easier.

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT

We all have something we can do to help our church grow.  It starts with you.  It starts with knowing whose you are and how you can follow the word of God. Stewardship is your way of showing how much you love God.  You do it with your time, talent and tithes.  Take the time to know God in your own personal way and ask for Him to guide you in your walk in stewardship.  We celebrate those who are working to improve God’s house with our lighting.  We also celebrate those who are working to feed the hungry.  Be a part of something you care about.  Find the steward in YOU.
