Vincent Church Has Reopened for Worship

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.
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 front of the left front door 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.
