Sunday Worship Service

Vincent United Methodist Church will gather for worship this Sunday morning, November 24 at 10:00 a.m. on the Last Sunday after Pentecost and Thanksgiving Sunday.  The Chancel and Children’s Choir will sing and the Wesley Ringers will play.  There will be the dedication of bags of food for those in need.  Rev.

 Thanksgiving Food Drive

Vincent Church is beginning its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.  Members of the community are invited to participate by purchasing a bag or more of non-perishable food and dropping it off at the Church Office any weekday from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. by Friday, November 22.  One possibility is to collect items that would be used for a Thanksgiving dinner.  This would be a good family project.  Last year, over 100 bags were collected.  The donations will be given to the NFSB Food Pantry here in Nutley and CUMAC, a United Methodist Food Pantry in Paterson.  Please give generously as these and all food pantries are struggling to meet the growing needs of the hungry in our area.
