The Flowers on the Altar are Donated By Sylia Kennedy-Happy Birthday

ALTAR FLOWERS:    The followings dates are still available to donate flowers September 22, October 12, October 27, November 17, and December 8.   Thank you to all who have donated flowers to beautify the Altar.

I would like to thank everyone for your prayers, cards, and phone calls. I am so grateful for your concern and helping me during my fall. It’s a blessing to know that when I fell that I had a church family that was there when I needed them. I guess that is what family does.   Thanks for everything.  With love in my heart there is no other church family that I would be a part of. Bonita

We are happy and blessed to celebrate the return of Pastor Jéaninne L. Walker to our New Vision Church Family.   All are invited to attend the breakfast reception to be held, in her honor, on Sunday July 7th at 9:00 a.m.

Please remember to call the church and let us know if your loved one has passed.  If you do not tell us, we probably won’t know.

Success on God’s Terms

“Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so that you may prosper in everything you do.”-Dt. 29:9 NIV

Two men were talking and one said, “Do you know the secret of success?”  The other replied, “No, what is it?”  The first man said, “I can’t tell you because it’s a secret!”  As God defines it, success is not a secret.  He repeatedly says in His word that he wants us to be successful.  But as our faces differ, so does God’s plan for each of us.  When God created man, one of the first things He told him to do was “be fruitful and multiply”.  In the book of Job, it says “Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end would increase abundantly.”  God will bless you, in order to make you a blessing to others.
