Come Worship! Sunday School for all ages at 9:45 am and Worship at 11:00 am
All are invited to Raleigh’s observance of World Day of Prayer on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at West Raleigh Presbyterian Church, 27 Horne Street with refreshments at 10:00 and a worship service at 10:30. Following prayer, there is an opportunity to sort clothing for migrant farm workers, an annual mission project of Church Women United in Raleigh.
Charles Pettee and FolkPsalm offer a mix of bluegrass and new acoustic music featuring various Old Testament Psalms. The 3,000-year-old sacred poems of the Hebrews sound startlingly contemporary in their deeply human expressions of ecstasy, dread, defiance, and hope. Charles will work with WRPC artists, songwriters, dancers, poets, writers and readers during Lent in workshops, Sunday School and a culminating concert.
Why are the Psalms important?
As a church, we need the Word of God to seep into our bones. We need the support and comfort that the Psalms can bring. We need the continual reminder that God, rather than we humans, is the center of the universe. We need the words of the Psalms so that we might call on God and work with God, perhaps with fist in the air, to bring justice.
