CROP Walk – October 21

The Nutley CROP Walk to help alleviate hunger will take place on Sunday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m., with registration at 1:30.  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.”

Hurricane Recovery Donations

The devastation from Hurricane Florence and its flooding rains was catastrophic in the Carolinas.  The United Methodist Committee on Relief is already at work.  Vincent Church is collecting for these efforts with a special offering where 100% of the donations goes to the work at hand.  Contribution can be made through the Church Office.

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.
