“Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
New Vision is in need. We are in need of people who will commit to supporting our church at all times. We need lights in our sanctuary, paving of the parking lot, professional custodial support, external cleaning of the building, additional lamp posts in the parking lot and an electronic sign at the street. These things could cost over $60,000. We also need some staff to host activities that can reach the community during the evenings and weekends. In order to grow, we need the commitment of everyone in the church financially and otherwise. The time, talent and treasures, the 3 T’s, are still the same. Since we have less people now, we each have to do more. Can you commit to go the extra mile to support New Vision today? Do you want to be a part of making our church grow? We hope the answer is “Yes”.
