One of my absolute favorite places on earth is our 1874 chapel. I love its simple architecture, its wooden pews, its musty smells and its intimate setting. What a tremendous legacy our spiritual forebears left us. Our strong history has been made possible by God's sustaining presence and by people who paved the way for us today. We do not take those blessings or gifts for granted. We remember the stories, the service, the gifts, and the faith entrusted to VPC over the years.
It is our hope that Vienna Presbyterian Church will continue to be a sanctuary for God's people for generations to come. In order to ensure this church carries on the legacy of God's work, we carefully steward the gifts we are given. The gifts people leave the church after they have died are compelling testimonies to their faith and their belief in Christ's work in and through VPC.
If we love our church while we're alive, why wouldn't we continue to invest in the Lord's work after we're gone? Our final act of living can be a gift that leaves a lasting legacy.
A Legacy that Matters.
