Snow Removal 

We continue to have concerns about how our snow removal plan is unfolding.  Work has been, and continues, to try to find the balance in providing a safe and welcoming environment as it relates to the significant financial costs associated with snow removal.  
Please feel free to reach out if you have questions, comments, and/or concerns.

$2,000 Grant
On Tuesday we learned that Vincent received a $2,000 grant from the Dakotas Conference Foundation to help launch this Dinner Church community.
At Dinner Church, people gather around tables for food, fellowship, and faith.
Everyone is welcome for Food, Fellowship, and Faith.

Prayer Names

As people of faith we pray.
Every week, we have dozens of names and circumstances identified for prayer.
As we continually monitor this, we're in the early stages of evaluating how we best communicate prayer concerns and wishes in a respectful, faithful manner.   

Weather Updates / Schedule Disruptions 

As the cold settles in and potential snow starts falling again, we're reminded that schedule disruptions sometimes happen over the course of the winter.

The quickest way for us to communicate schedule disruptions or changes is through our Vincent Facebook page.  

More and more we're finding that the news stations prefer to share the information via their website.

If there is an ACTIVE blizzard warning, the church office will be closed unless otherwise noted.
It is a joy and privilege to serve Jesus with you!

Warming House

The meal Vincent prepares every Tuesday evening definately gets put to good use.  It is always humbling to walk in and remember how many people in our community do not have access to a place out of the cold over night.

Vincent's support of this ministry makes a tangible difference in real people's lives.

Congregational Care Ministry

Vincent is the fiscal agent for a 2 year grant Congregational Care Ministry grant totalling $50,000 from the Dakotas UMC Conference.  

This grant is to be used to begin work to develop and strengthen congregational care ministries across United Methodist Churches in Minot and our surrounding area.

Lisa Luft, R.N. is heading up this ministry.  Her new email is:
We can also help you connect with Lisa through the Vincent office (701-838-4425).

If you have questions about any of this,
please feel free to reach out.  

 In the Hospital
We are intentional about checking the hospital roster every weekday. Even so, please do not hesitate to let us know if you or someone you care about is in the hospital, or has a hospital event scheduled.  We don't always find out about a hospitalization, and sometimes we only find out after the fact.  The church's number is 701-838-4425.  Please know we appreciate knowing you are in the hospital.

The church phone is answered from 8 am to noon and 1 - 5 pm Monday through Friday.  If a message is left at the church, we seek to return the call in a timely manner.  If a message is left outside of office hours the call will likely not be returned until the following day or Monday.

My cell # is: 701-500-6773.
We try to have this covered all the time.  If you call or text, a message will be returned in a timely manner.
