We are excited to announce that this fall the Paperhand Puppet Intervention will be joining us at WRPC to help build giant puppets for an original production of the nativity story. The show will be preformed during a worship service at WRPC and a public performance in December. We will also make the show available to partner churches.*
We have a team of imaginative writers working on the script right now. Next up is building the puppets! All ages and denominations are invited to join the folks at Paperhand on Sunday afternoons from 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm on October 18 thru November 8 just register online. There is no fee to participate and registration is not required, however this will help us plan for space and materials.
We also strongly encourage you to attend this summer's Paperhand preformance, A Drop in the Bucket, now shoing in Chapel Hill and at the NC Art Museum in September.
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
