CHARGE CONFERENCE: The Charge Conference will be today following worship service. The item to be discussed is the Lead Team’s recommendation to sell the parsonage. In order to devote time and attention to this specific item, we are now advancing this recommendation as the sole item for the Charge Conference. As a result, we are moving our regular Annual Charge Conference business to December (date to be announced). Detailed information regarding the details of the recommendation will be provided once again at the Charge Conference, along with any updates since our last letter to allow you to make an informed decision. We ask that you pray for discernment for all of us as we make this important decision, and that we can move forward on one accord as we prepare our church for the future.

WIDOW’S MITE GIVING: Please plan to participate in the Widow’s Mite Giving. The “Red Bag” coin collection will begin in November. Save all of your loose change and place in the red bag.

We will collect the red bags during the month of December. If you have questions, please see Patricia Simmons or Sylvia Kennedy.

STUDYING TO SHOW OURSELVES APPROVED: New Vision’s current insightful and inspiring Sunday School classes will continue to be offered on Sundays at 9am. There is a sermon application session following worship led by Pastor Worthen. This Bible Study/discussion will be based on the sermon and gives everyone an opportunity to be in dialogue with one another about the message and how God’s Word can be applied in our lives. Everyone, members AND visitors are encouraged to participate in this time of fellowship and study, as it gives us an opportunity to ask questions, and to learn from and encourage one another.
