For October, we will continue live streaming our worship services every Sunday morning at 10am on Facebook. Pastor Susan, Deb R, Keith P, and Chris and John B serve as our Live Stream Worship Team. Thanks to our team for helping us keep the Spirit moving among us during this unique time in our lives. Each Sunday, have your updated Prayer List with you that you received via email or postal mail earlier in the week. The Sunday bulletin to follow along with worship and hymns can be printed from the home page of the church website.

Giving Away Bibles - Sunday, October 25, 1pm-2pm
While you are at the church, take home a bible for your home or a friend. We are giving away retired Revised Standard Version, gently-used bibles. They are sanitized and bagged for your safety. We currently use the New Revised Standard Version in our pews. Come in and visit Pastor Susan, who will be wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and giving air hugs!
To keep us all connected while we are self-distancing, please check out ST. VINCENT UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST on Facebook for daily music selections from our music director, Keith, and weekly video devotions with Pastor Susan. Let us know if you have any suggestions for what you might like to see or hear. Email Pastor Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cooke Tavern Dry Soup Mixes
As the weather starts to get a little cooler, you might be thinking of making SOUP. Just a reminder that Cooke Tavern Dry Soup Mixes are available for purchase year-round at $8. We have a good variety of flavors in stock. Most are gluten-free and MSG and salt-free. Contact Linda G in the office to replenish your supply.
Supporting Your Church
There have been questions about how to continue to make your offerings. Members are mailing in their offerings routinely, some have signed up for e-giving, and others have asked if they could use PayPal. Yes, you can use PayPal via the "USE APP" button on our ST. VINCENT UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST Facebook page to donate to St Vincent UCC. By pressing the blue "USE APP” bar under the large picture of the church, you can connect to your PayPal account. Then follow the PayPal instructions.
Thank you to ALL our congregants and friends that continue to support our church while socially distancing.
Even though 2020 has been a very different year, your Consistory continues to meet (virtually) to discuss church business and to plan ahead for our future This is a good time to start thinking about joining the Consistory and participating in this important ministry. We need Elders and Deacons starting in January. Whether you have never been on Consistory, or have taken a break and are thinking of rejoining, this is your opportunity! Contact Pastor Susan or Chris B if you think you might be interested.
