What are your worship services like?
You will find the worship flow at New Vision to be straightforward and Spirit-led.
Praise and Worship – Services begin with praise & worship. Led by vocalists and a full band, this is a refreshing time where celebrate the risen Savior. We love to worship! Our music is contemporary and aligned with the Word of God. We seek to create an atmosphere of freedom, so it is not uncommon for people to dance, leap, smile, kneel at the altar, lift hands or weep as the Spirit leads.
The Word – After praise and worship we usually go directly into the preached Word of God. All messages are Scripture based and designed to be relevant for Christian living. An altar call may follow messages, as the Spirit leads.
Giving – We generally close out the service with NVIM News (our news and announcements), the benediction and offering. We encourage Spirit-led giving of tithes, offerings and acceptable gifts.
What is the dress code?
We don’t have one! Some folks wear jeans while others prefer traditional Sunday best. Come as you feel led.
What is there to do for my kids?
During Sunday morning worship children’s church is available for ages 6 months through 12 years. In the Discovery Zone your children will learn about God in a fun and safe educational environment. Drop your kids off at 9:30am and go get your worship on!
What if I have an infant?
You are welcome to bring your infant into the main sanctuary!
If your child begins to cry during service, a sanctuary servant (usher) will politely ask you to visit the Crying Baby Room in the rear of the sanctuary. This is necessary because our services are broadcast internationally via internet livestream, radio & public access television.
We also want to be mindful of others who may be distracted from the preached word. This room features one-way glass for your feeding and baby changing needs.
What happens after service?
At most churches people head for their cars immediately after the benediction. At New Vision, people hang out in the building. Hungry? You can grab a bite to eat at one of our member-owned restaurants on campus. Cuisine options include Jamaican, salads, wraps, soul food and desserts.
Depending on the athletic season, we display the headlining Sunday afternoon football or basketball game on screens throughout the building. Kids shoot hoops outside on the basketball court, while teens hang out in the cafe. Time after service is important to our culture for building relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
