Hospitality & Evangelism Team

When you arrive at Vestal UMC you will find warm, welcoming members of Hospitality and Evangelism Team ready to welcome you with a smile and handshake.  You will also notice simple but inspiring decorations throughout our church lobby and other areas that will make you feel at home.  


Formed in 2002, the Hospitality and Evangelism Team has two purposes:


1.  Hospitality: To identify visitors and make them feel welcomed and at home, to share the history of our church, the gift of our music programs, the strength of our Sunday school and education programs, and to answer any and all questions a visitor or guest may have about our church and our atmosphere of fellowship.


2. Evangelism: To outreach to the community, to connect with people on their faith journey, and get the word out that Vestal United Methodist Church is here for them when they hear the calling.


Reaching Up – Reaching Out


Reaching Up – Reaching Out is one of our many community outreach programs.  Over 400 of our neighbors are contacted and given the opportunity to request assistance around their residence with everything from gardening to small home repairs.  Then volunteers from Vestal UMC will spend a few hours fulfilling those requests to the best of our ability.  It is also a time that we spend working to improve areas around our church campus.


In our 5th year over 75 volunteers assisted 5 of our neighbors with chores such as installing window air conditioners, weeding and creating a new flower bed.  In addition, several projects were completed around the church including work in our garden, clean up around the parking lot, steralizing toys in our children's areas and cleaning and dusting our hymnals, Bible's and other areas of our sanctuary.
