Honoring our Veterans - Can you help?

Veteran's Day is Sunday, November 11, observed Monday, November 12.  We honor St. Vincent members and friends who have proudly served our great nation by displaying their pictures.  Have we got yours?   


Also, the two montages of pictures we already have need to be redone in new frames.  We are looking for volunteers to take on this task.  If you would like to help, please see Ken B or Linda G.

Consistory Needs YOU!

Being on Consistory is a wonderful opportunity to serve your church.  This is a good time to start thinking about joining Consistory for the coming years.  We will need elders and deacons starting in January.  Whether you have never been on, or have been off for a long or short time, your involvement will be welcome.  Feel free to sit in on a meeting if you would like to see how it all works, or speak with Pastor Susan or any Consistory member with questions.  Consistory meets next on Sunday, October 14, immediately following church service.  Join us!

Welcome Miss Tara!

We are pleased to introduce Miss Tara as our new Nursery Supervisor. Tara has her Bachelor's degree in Health Administration and Psychology from St. Joseph's University and her Master's Degree in Trauma-Focused Counseling Psychology from Arcadia University. She works full time as a rehabilitation case manager at a residential traumatic brain injury rehab, and part time as a respite care provider with special-needs children.  In addition to years of experience, Tara is CPR/First Aid certified and has Crisis Intervention/Prevention training.  We are feeling so blessed that Tara has come to join us!  Please give her a warm St. Vincent welcome.
