Weekly News

Sunday Worship Service

Vincent United Methodist Church will gather for worship this Sunday morning, September 22, at 10:00 a.m. on Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost.  The Chancel Choir will sing and the children will assist in leading worship.  Rev. LeDuc will share a children’s sermon and conclude his sermon series with the message “A Story of Homecoming: The Father.”  Every Sunday, nursery care and Church School for the children is available during the worship hour and a time of fellowship and refreshments follows the service in the Chapel.  The Sanctuary and Chapel are air-conditioned.

“A Story of Homecoming” Sermon Series

In life, we sometimes wander from our roots, our principles, our faith.  But God always remains faithful and longs for our return home.  As we explore Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son through the eyes of the younger son, the older son, and the father, may we find our own homecoming into the arms of the Lord.

Church School

Vincent United Methodist Church’s Church School has classes for children from age 2 through grade 12 and meets during the worship hour each Sunday.  The curriculum being used is “Deep Blue” featuring Bible stories, a weekly DVD clip, games, crafts, and activities to help children “grow deeper in their faith.”  Children and their families are invited to come any Sunday or to call the Church Office for more information.

Music Notes

Now is an excellent time to join one of the church choirs as we begin a new church year.  The Chancel Choir for youth and adults practices on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m.  The Wesley Ringers handbell choir and the Children’s Choir rehearse on Sunday mornings at 11:30 a.m.    If you’re interested, call the Church Office for more information.

“Pray and Color” Group

“Pray and Color” is a creative spiritual prayer group being led by Becky Olivo on Wednesday mornings from 9:15-10:15. The study includes a time for sharing concerns amidst creative, spiritual and meditative coloring and prayer.  All are welcome.

CROP Walk – October 20

The Nutley CROP Walk to help alleviate hunger will take place on Sunday, October 20 at 1:00 p.m., with registration at 12:30.  The walk will be held in the Nutley Oval by the high school.  It is a wonderful family service project.  Walkers commit to completing the walk – rain or shine – and collect money from sponsors before or after they walk.  We hope this will once again be a large community event to help people in need around the world, with 25% of it returning to aid our local community.  Please see or contact Rick De Kovessey at 973-667-2404 or Lisa Feraco at 973-667-7668 if you are interested in being a Walker.  “Ending Hunger One Step at a Time.”

Vincent United Methodist Church is located at 100 Vincent Place (across from the library).  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.
