Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. in the Sweet Family Room
The Prayer Ministry group meets once a week to pray for our church, our people, our families and friends, and the list goes on and on. Anyone who feels a call to pray for our church and community are welcome to join us.
The Mission Outreach Committee conducts the Noisy Offering, which is collected on the 5th Sunday of the month when they occur (4 times per year) during announcement time just before Sunday worship. Members of the Mission Outreach Committee pass metal buckets among the congregation to collect their loose coins. The sound – it’s loud! - of those coins dropping into the buckets make this a truly “Noisy Offering.” The money collected is then counted by committee members and the funds are sent to the specific organization chosen by the Committee from the Committee’s list of organizations supported by Valley Presbyterian Church. To find out more about these missions and the others VPC supports, visit the mission page on this site or pick up a copy of VPC Mission Outreach 2016 guide at VPC.
Trouble Hearing in Worship?
VPC has hearing assistance systems in both the Sanctuary and the Spiritual Life Center! If you have hearing aids with the “T-coil” technology, there are loops to allow our receivers (available at the entrances) to feed directly into your own devices. Otherwise, we have over-the-ear headsets available – and, if you prefer, you can use your own “earbuds” or other headphones with our receivers. Don’t forget that sound quality varies throughout the Sanctuary. With a space that large, there are bound to be areas that are less “live” than others. Try another seat! You just might meet a new friend.
The Session has received the Journey Ahead Group Report which is the result of several months of conversations and listening forums with members, committees, pastors and staff. A number of recommendations have already been approved, some have been referred to a committee, and many others are in consideration by the Session. You can read the report HERE.
