New Vision will be created when the congregations of Grace United Church and St. Mark's United Church merge on Jan. 1. The new church will be housed in the current St. Mark's building.

“Fantastic!”                                                                                               As printed in the St. Thomas Times Journal on May 2, 12014

That's the word from Murray Adlam following his benefit concert Saturday at New Vision Community Church. The evening at former St. Mark's United Church supported the new congregation founded in a merger between Grace United and St. Mark's, and the Mildred Bodkin Scholarship Fund for Voice and Movement.

Just over 200 tickets were sold and about $3,000 was raised.

Murray was joined on stage for an evening of Broadway showtunes, by Paul Bodkin at the grand piano. Mildred was Paul's mom and the fund in her memory underwrites lessons and fees for deserving children.

“I'm so very pleased with the support we received, considering all the other events happening last Saturday night.”
