The atmosphere was alive with the spirit of celebration in downtown Shreveport, Louisiana, as the newly planted New Vision Community Church – Shreveport of the Free Methodist Church – USA Gulf Coast Conference participated in the annual Krewe of Harambee Martin Luther King Jr. parade.
Promoting community outreach through Takin’ it to the Streets Inc. — a community outreach program headquartered at New Vision Community Church – Shreveport — thousands were served with Bibles, laminated copies of the Ten Commandments, stuffed animals, beads and toys. It was great exposure for the church and its mission of service in the community.
New Vision Community Church – Shreveport Director of Ministries Beverly Paige was the parade’s citywide organizer and chairperson. Ron Hampton is the church’s pastor and the founder and president of Takin’ it to the Streets Inc.
