Outreach Festival

Did you ever wonder…

Is human trafficking occurring in Northern Virginia, Fairfax or Vienna?

How feasible is is to ‘age in place’ in your own home?

What is happening in Myanmar as hundreds of thousands Rohingya’s are fleeing?

Kenya’s elections have been nullified. What will happen to millions as the government is in a state of chaos?

Come meet our mission partners who are serving in each of these mission fields, learn about the diverse areas that are served and learn how to become part of an outreach team. Sunday, October 1 from 9am – 12:30pm with a luncheon to follow.

 

 

 

VPC Global Friends Ministry

What is the Global Friends ministry? In the Washington area, we are blessed to have families and individuals come from all over the world to live, study and work among us. Yet, many are never once invited into an American home while they are here. Global Friends is a cross-cultural outreach ministry started in 2015 by VPC volunteers who wanted to help fill this “hospitality gap” and, at the same time, learn about other cultures.

It is a fun and easy ministry that volunteers can do from the comfort of their own home on their own schedule, with a minimal time commitment. And unlike many other church ministries, this is one that the whole family can do together — if they’d like.

Share your American hospitality by becoming a Global Friend starting this fall. Read more.

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
