“2 Corinthians: Serving from the Heart” Study

Vincent Church is having a Bible study on “Second Corinthians” on Monday mornings from 9:30 - 11 on Zoom.  In “2 Corinthians: Serving from the Heart,” Paul calls us to align our hearts and lives with the way of the Savior and offer authentic love, amazing grace, extravagant generosity, and humble service.  Contact the Church Office for more information.

Vincent Church Care Pantry Supply Drive

The Vincent Church Care Pantry has distributed personal care items to those in need in our community for over 25 years.  Items are collected at the church, bagged for each family, and distributed on the first Monday of the month from 4-6 p.m.  During the pandemic, the need has grown by 50% to over 70 families each month.  The shelves have become harder to stock due to the increased need, the pandemic limitations of usual donors, the limited stock at the Community Food Bank, and difficulty purchasing items in bulk.  The following are items that are needed most: paper towels, toilet paper and household cleaners (like Lysol, Spic and Span, Clorox, Kaboom, Fabuloso, disinfectant spray).  Also helpful are laundry detergent, dish detergent, shampoo, and deodorant.  Many of these items cannot be purchased using a NJ SNAP card (food stamps). Donations can be dropped off in the bin on the front step of the church from Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The church is located at 100 Vincent Place in Nutley, across from the Nutley Library.  Monetary donations can be made by visiting the church website’s online donation page (www.vincentumc.org/OnlineDonations) and noting it for Care Pantry or by mailing checks made and mailed to Vincent Church marked for Care Pantry.

It is handicapped accessible from the north parking lot.  For more information, contact the Church Office at 973-667-5440 or visit the church website at www.vincentumc.org or on Facebook.  All are welcome.
