Tekax 25th Anniversary trip

Pick up an Information Sheet with attached sign up sheets on the Information Table outside after worship.  The information is also here.  Contact Anita Wotiz at with questions.



New Usher Volunteers Needed

Are you a little tired of seeing the same faces (as lovely as they are) greeting you with a bulletin and passing you the collection plate every Sunday?  That's because we find ourselves, once again, with a short list of usher volunteers.  If you're looking for a way to serve, even a few times a year, this would help with a great need.  Please contact Ted Meeker about what the job entails, and he'll accommodate your schedule and fit you into the rotation.

Annual Report 2012


Per Capita Request

Each year we ask VPC members to consider paying their part of the per capita expense. This year the amount per member is $36.00. Per capita is a fundamental way in which all of the nearly 11,000 congregations and mid councils of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) are connected and participate in the work of the wider church. The money is used to for the administration of the church including the General Assembly, the synods, and the presbyteries. The San Francisco Presbytery uses more than a third of the per capita expense locally. Please make out your check to VPC and mark "per capita" in the memo line. You can put them in the collection plate or leave them in the office.
