You can also download the form from our website (www.valleypresbyterian.net/nominations) or submit it directly online from there. Please respond before August 24th.

Pastor/Head of Staff Position Description
The Session has approved the new Pastor/Head of Staff position description for the future new pastor at Valley. You can read it HERE.
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.
We are recruiting volunteers to serve on the Buildings and Grounds Committee and the new Fellowship Committee. Please contact Rev. Medina or Rev. Christopher at 625-5023 to sign up or to ask more questions about each committee.
Information Center Volunteers Needed: The main focus is member sign-up for printed sermons, Sunday Flowers, ID badges, and a few other tasks. The schedule is set up around volunteer availability on Sundays. Please contact Pat Bruner at 625-4176 for more information.
Owl Express: We are in need of Owl Express Drivers! If you are interested, please contact Pam Peake at 955-2342. Thank you.
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.
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.
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.
