Visions of Hope Invites Community to Worship and Celebration Service

We would like to extend an invitation to the community to attend Visions of Hope's fifth annual Worship and Celebration Service.

This faith-based, cultural awareness event is free to the public and is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 25 at the Marjorie Luke Theater, 721 E. Cota St. in Santa Barbara.

We seek ethnic diversity in a unified worship. The program features local gospel artists and a powerful message by the Rev. Jacob D.R. Johnson of Growing Valley Baptist Church in Lancaster.

The 2015 national theme is "A Century of Black History, Life, and Culture." Throughout Santa Barbara County, there are a number of African-Americans who play a vital role in the enrichment of our lives.

During this event we will pay tribute to the following people for their achievements, contributions and inspiration to the community: Noah Burke, Caydan Cain, Christopher Cain, L.V. and Louise Canley, Sean Louis Clark, Johnson Gilbert, Clevonese Johnson and Melvin Richey.

We are pleased to continue our five-year relationship with the Marjorie Luke Theater, where every seat is a great seat and every seat should be a full seat for this event.

For additional information, please contact Phil at [email protected] or 805.319.1762.

— Phillip Pipersburg is the founder of Visions of Hope.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
