Vincent United Methodist Church will gather for worship in the church sanctuary this Sunday morning, November 29 at 10:00 a.m. on the First Sunday in Advent.  The worship service will be held in the church sanctuary and will be broadcast live for viewing on the church Facebook page.  We will light the first candle on the Advent wreath – the Candle of Hope.  There will be hymns, special music, and a revised Greening of the Church.  Rev. LeDuc will share a children’s sermon and begin an Advent sermon series entitled “Journey to Christmas” with the message “Expectancy.” Join us at 10:00 a.m. or view the service any time afterwards on the church Facebook page.

Vincent Church Has Reopened for Worship

Vincent Church has reopened for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m.  The service will also be broadcast live each week on the Vincent United Methodist Church Facebook page and be available by phone-in.  There will be a health screening for all attendees each week and a needed consent to the church’s COVID-19 protocols, which includes wearing a mask and adhering to social distancing.  Children will be required to stay with their parents throughout their time in the building.  Sunday School and Nursery Care will not begin until later in the Fall.  There will be socially distanced seating in the sanctuary.  Capacity will be limited to 50 people with overflow seating using the Facebook Livestream in Philhower Chapel. 

Maya Angelou and the Freedom Poetry of Advent

Vincent Church will have an Advent study on Monday mornings from 9:30 - 11 on Zoom through December 21.  In this Advent devotional, biblical texts and simple, accessible practices interweave with Maya Angelou’s stirring vision of faith, freedom, and dignity. Week by week, as we wait, and watch, and pray, we’ll walk toward Bethlehem - with the poetry of Maya Angelou and scripture as our guide. Contact the Church Office for more information,
