July 3rd @ 11am: Worship & Potluck

On Sunday, July 3rd, we are having one special, combined worship service at 11 a.m. Immediately following we are having a potluck to celebrate Pastor Jason’s service to our church and community on his last Sunday at New Vision.

Why the Church?

On July 3rd, Pastor Jason shares his final word of encouragement at New Vision Church.   In his message, Why The Church?,  he will explore questions such as:Is church still relevant?   With so many online options, is church even needed?   With so many scandals involving religious leaders, is church still helpful?  Guided by the story of the followers of Jesus and their experiences after he ascended to heaven, you will be challenged to consider that church is indeed still relevant and helpful for your own spiritual growth as well as that of your family and the world.

Pastor Jason accepts a new call

Pastor Jason recently announced that he has accepted a call to pastor a church in Ridgefield, Washington.  While we are happy for Pastor and his family, we will miss Pastor Jason, Erica, Olivia and Easton.  Pastor Jason’s last Sunday at New Vision will be this Sunday, July 3. Please join us that day as we have a “Celebration Send Off” Potluck for Pastor Jason.


The Church Board will be meeting with our District Superintendent, Rev. Jeren Rowell, as we begin the process of searching for a new pastor.
