DRIVE THRU PRAYER!  The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective. James 5:16b Prayer is something everybody needs.  Volunteers are invited to continue this incredible drive-thru prayer ministry.  Whosoever will, let them come!

WHAT’S STOPPING YOU? As they were going along the road, they came to some water; and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water! What is to prevent me from being baptized?”  Acts 8:36 This season of Easter is the perfect time for those who have not been baptized to be ushered in to the body of Christ, and a holy time to remember our own baptisms.  New Vision is having a special baptismal service today!  We have brought in a portable pool so that those who wish to be immersed can be baptized, or remember their baptism through this special service.  We already have people signed up, but it is not too late if you want to do this today!    Please let Pastor Worthen know if you would like to go to the water!

WOW: Evangelism will be having its WOW on Wednesday May 23rd 4-6 pm.  Please come out and help us show the community New Vision’s radical hospitality that we are known for.  We will have a cookout, prayer if anyone is need of and good fellowship.  Please come and support us in this endeavor.  Thanking you in advance for your support Bonita Barnes Team Leader.

SAVE THE DATE!  The Ministerial Recruitment Institute, or MRI, is a weeklong spiritual retreat within

the East Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church for youth ages 12-18.   Its goal: to create a space and an environment conducive to allowing young people to hear, question, consider, struggle, and respond to God’s call and claim on their lives to become true Christian disciples, leaders, ministers, pastors and evangelists.  We live, sing, play, worship, study, pray, laugh and cry together that week, as we all are there to “leave each person, place and session better than we found them/it” under the divine hand of Almighty God.  This year’s MRI dates are: July 15-20, 2018.   The total cost for the week includes all meals, the banquet and dorm room is $180.  We are in the process of trying to raise scholarship funds for those who need it to be sure everyone who is interested can attend.  Please see Pastor Worthen or contact the office for applications.
