The month of May has been a very busy one...
May 14th...Mother's Day
Our youth honored the mothers of the congregation with a small token of their appreciation for all they do for their families. Some of the youth also told what their mother meant to them and to say thank you for all they do. We are very proud of the youth of our church and the many projects they have accomplished together...keep up the good work for the Lord.
May 19th and 20...Brethren Disaster Ministries Relief Auction
We again helped with donations for the 25th annual Shenandoah District Disaster Ministries Auction. Our members came together and donated 5 theme baskets, along with some childrens toys. The totals that was raised for the baskets are as follows...
Tool Cart-- $750--the biggest amount for any "basket" there.
Family Road Trip-$580
Home Sweet Home--$400
We are very proud to be able to come together each year and make our baskets for this cause, our members have a lot of fun and fellowship with this.
Our church also helped with the bidding for Brownie's Memorial Basket. Brownie Cave was a member of the Mt. Zion COB, and she was their oldest member @101. She passed away in November, 2016. Rosemary Comer, her youngest daughter, made up a memorial basket of Brownie's quilting materials, books, and needles.
Sunday May 21st...Recognition of Graduates
We honored our high school graduates with recognition during worship service. They were presented with a bible and words of wisdom; there was also a luncheon after worship hour in their honor.
Congratulations to our high school graduates, we wish them much success as they take that next step of their journey toward their future. You will be in our thoughts and prayers all along the way!
Saturday May 27th...Women's Ministry Bake sale
The Women's Ministry had a bake sale on Saturday in front of Hammer Insurance in Shenandoah. Their goal was raising money to help with a Care Closet. There were donations of cakes, pies, cookies, and many different baked goods. They also sold country ham sandwiches along with chips and drinks. They had a big success. Thank you to all who came out to support them.

March 19, 2017
Today we honored our Senior Wisdom, 38 senior citizen members of our congregation. As you can see we have have a great deal of wisdom that can be tapped into ranging from a young senior at the age of 60 all the way to the age of almost 90. It is important to our youth and young adults that we value who God has given us to help guide and lead us as we grow in church and our everyday lives. We must always remember that those who traveled this path before us, have already had trials and experiences that can help lead us to make wise decisions in our lives and in our walk with God...all we have to do is ask, talk and listen and we will learn so much to help us on our own journey for Christ.
After worship we honored all with fellowship and a meal in the social hall...
Thank you to all the senior members who have been teachers, counselors and mentors to so many throughout your years at Newport! May you continue to always be blessed and caring for many years to come.
Have you hugged a senior member today?
