Vincent United Methodist Church in Nutley

The Church in the heart of Nutley

It allows us to be connected and central to the life of our community and it enables us to encourage the people of our community toward the importance of faith in God as a part of a good, healthy, and fulfilling life. Our location does, however, lead to some challenges when there are major events near the center of town.

The Journey So Far

Hey everyone! I'm not going to lie, this has been harder than I expected. Life can just get so busy with lessons, classes, exams, holidays and family. I took a moment today to realize that my thankfulness for these things is in part why I got involved. My biggest worries in life are about grades and friend drama while there are people in my area that are worried about where their next meal is coming from. My progress so far has been more about making connections. I have gotten in contact with...

As a student council we made a goal to donate 800 lbs. of food and $400.00. Because of the generosity of our students and parents we were able to donate 946 pounds of food and $135.00. We had individual donations of .12 all the way up to $20.00. It warmed my heart as I saw students bring in their own allowance...

Jan 2015 Blog Entry

Since the initial meeting I have been working on my SBoC pitch. I did not have the opportunity to visit any rotary clubs so I'm working on a pitch to present at a school assembly. I plan on working with another South Carolina Teen Advisory board member, Crystal Deneal during our free time to confirm our plans for Souper Bowl of Caring at our church as we have fundraising at our church for several years now. My roadblock has been that I haven't been able to get on my school's service learning director's...
