LIGHT! Dazzling images of light explode throughout the Bible --- as God creates the heavens and the earth, when angels appear, when God calls us out of darkness and as Jesus breaks into the New Dawn.
When you think of the days of Creation in Genesis, what number comes to mind? Six? Seven?
At West Raleigh’s All-Church Retreat at Umstead Park, we will explore the idea of an Eighth Day of Creation, our response to God’s creation—our own creativity, our own participation in creation! If you have ever made a cake, a birdfeeder, an art project, or a gift for someone special, then you have participated in creation. We will spend time creating with our hearts, our minds, our eyes, our mouths, as well as our hands. Sarah Lien Finnerty, formerly the DCE at First Presbyterian, will be leading us as we create memories together! Registration Form
Have you ever noticed how calm you can feel just from staring at waves breaking on the shore, the sway of tall grass or flowers in a green meadow, or clouds in the sky? Images of God’s handiwork have been shown to have a healing effect on those undergoing treatment and recovery from long-term illnesses like cancer. With this in mind, Raleigh artist Amy Jo Edwards started a project called Healing Ceilings to provide local cancer treatment centers with ceiling tiles created by area artists. See Healing Ceilings’ Facebook page for photos of some of the donations so far.
We are inviting West Raleigh Presbyterian and our neighborhood churches and community to join us in creating ceiling tiles that will be donated and installed in cancer centers.
The Acts Team invites you to complete this survey that will be used by the Pastor Nominating Committee as it develops WRPC’s Ministry Information Form (MIF). The MIF is a profile of our church to be shared with prospective candidates for the position of Pastor.
We value everyone who is part of the life of the church and invite all to take the survey. Each member of the household should fill in his or her own survey. You do not have to be a member of the church to give your feedback.
If you prefer to print the survey and return it by mail or deliver it to the church download a printable pdf of the survey.
