The Pastor Nominating Committee and WRPC's Session is proud to introduce Katherine Rick-Miller as our new pastor, called by the congregation on September 20.
Rev. Katherine Rick-Miller was raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She is a child of the First Presbyterian Church of Tuscaloosa, where she was confirmed, went on her first mission trip and discovered the Montreat Youth Conference. Katherine received a degree in Psychology from Wake Forest University in 1997. While studying at Wake Forest, she became more interested in international mission and justice work and traveled to India with a group of students to work with Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity. Upon return Katherine sensed a strong call to parish ministry. Before starting her seminary education at Princeton Theological Seminary, she spent one year studying at Trinity Theological Seminary in Ghana, West Africa on a Rotary Scholarship.Read more: Meet our New Pastor
Paperhand Puppet Intervention brings the magic of imagination to the stage with giant puppets. WRPC is fortunate to partner with Paperhand for a special Nativity show! We need YOUR HELP to create the oversized puppets that will bring our original script to life.
Three Sunday afternoons in November we will travel to the Paperhand Puppet studio in beautiful Saxapahaw, overlooking the Haw River, for sessions with master-pupeteer Donovan Zimmerman where we will create giant paper mache and cardboard puppets for the show at our church this winter.
WRPC members of all ages, PCM students and anyone else who is interested in this amazing opportunity are invited to join us November 1, 8 and 15 from 12:30 to 5:30. Carpooling will be arranged and we will eat lunch on the way. There is no cost to participate. Sign up online today! We are limited to 20 spots so don’t delay.
Let’s build our faith community while building homes for those in need. West Raleigh has committed to contributing monies and time toward the building of 50 house through the Habitat for Humanity “Building on Faith” program this coming year. Our church will donate $6,500 that will come from individual donations, mission funds, and specifically targeted memorials. (Donations to meet our church goal of $6,500 for Habitat should be on checks made out to WRPC with “Habitat Build Fund” in the memo line)
Members will also join together on 4 different Saturdays in September and October to work on houses right here in Raleigh. We look to have 30 church members, over the age of 16, working together on each of the four days. NO Experience Is Necessary! Just a willing heart. Workdays run from 8:00 a.m.-3:30 pm. You can sign up for 1,2, 3 or all 4 days. I encourage you to sign up for several. Our work days will be: September 19, September 26, October 10 and October 17
