Changing the Conversation: A Book Study
NEW DATE AND TIME
Six weeks beginning May 3 from 2:30-4:00 pm in Classroom 5
News flash! The church is no longer the center of the community. The church does not grow by simply opening its doors. Based on the book Changing the Conversation, this class discusses the issues facing mainline Protestant churches today.
This class will help us find a new passion, vision and a way forward in following the way of Christ.
THE COOKBOOKS ARE HERE!
In celebration of VPC’s 40th anniversary, the Women’s Ministries compiled a cookbook containing over 470 recipes, a few of which are favorites from earlier cookbooks. Sales will begin TODAY after worship!
The cookbooks will be available at the Women’s Ministries table every Sunday and will sell for $18.00 each or 2 for $35.00.
Only 500 books were ordered so plan to buy soon!

Forming Your Faith
Sundays BEFORE worship (except the first Sun of the month)
The 2nd Sunday of the month is The Wired Word: we look at current events through scripture. On the 3rd Sunday of the month, we form your faith through books. The 4th Sunday is scripture and music. And on those occasional 5th Sundays, we enjoy God with laughter. Grab some refreshments and come to classroom 5 around 8:35 a.m.
The Inquisitors Explore “Living the Questions”
Fridays at 1:30 p.m. in Classroom 1
Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” With “Living the Questions,” we will examine our faiths in an environment where participants can interact with each other and fine tune our beliefs to make them more worth having and living. We will view 20-minute segments of conversations of leading voices of faith, digital stories illustrating aspects of an evolving faith, and concrete spiritual practices and disciplines. After each segment, we will discuss how what we have seen might be used to help us grow spiritually. These will be stimulating, fun discussions. For further information, contact Grant Stitt at 396-3549.
As a driver, would you be willing to be on our “transportation list” to help our non-drivers get to church or to their local appointments? Please call (625-4219) or email Pat McFarland at (email@example.com) for more information and/or to be added to her list of drivers.

Children’s Sunday School
Children begin their morning in worship. After the Youth Chat, children grades 1-6 go to classroom 3 for a lesson by one of our wonderful teachers. (There is no Children’s Sunday School on the first Sunday of each month.)
Deacon Food Bank Sunday
Every first Sunday of the Month
Please bring food or monetary donations and place them on the cart in Fellowship Hall. All your donations are very much appreciated by the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
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.
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.
Owl Cart Drivers, Patio Sale, Ushers, Coffee Fellowship, Medical Team, Creative Hands, Quilters, Flower Arrangers, Information Center, and Welcome Center. If you have time to share with any of these or other groups, please call the office at 625-5023 to let us know.
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.
