The Queen of Katwe Returns to VPC

We are blessed to have Phiona Mutesi (The Queen of Katwe), Robert Katende, her chess coach, and Rodney Suddith, the President of Sports Outreach Institute with us in worship on Sunday, April 30th.  Since Disney shared their faith journey in the movie, The Queen of Katwe, they’ve had an amazing experience traveling the world while sharing their inspirational story.  They will share their story at all three services providing a Minute for Witness. Please join us for a Mission Luncheon and discussion  following the 11:00 am service to hear from them directly! Childcare provided. RSVP

6K Global Walk for Water:                           One Cause. One Weekend. All Nations.

6 kilometers is the average distance that people in the developing world walk for water — water that is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases. On Saturday, May 6th, 2017, people from around the globe will walk or run an average distance for an extraordinary cause. Each participant’s registration of $50 goes to World Vision’s Water Initiatives. After you register you will receive a World Vision Global 6K for Water t-shirt, race bib, and medal in the mail.  Why we walk. Registration.

Cunningham Park Mentoring Program

VPC is partnering with other local churches for the Mentoring/Tutoring program at Cunningham Park Elementary School.  Consider making a difference in the life of a child by weekly one on one meetings each Thursday from 3:30 until 4:30.  A recent pot luck dinner allowed the students families to meet with their mentor’s family, and it was a wonderful evening of celebration, fellowship and the love of Christ extended through our mentors.  Thursday has become the favorite day of the week for many of our student mentees! We also teamed with local churches to pack nutritious meals for students without adequate food on the weekends, and Cunningham Park now has enough food to provide for families through June of 2018.  Several other local schools were also supplied with this much appreciated food.  More mentors are needed and appreciated.  Questions?  Sue.hamblen@viennapres.org
