Katherine's First Day!
Monday, November 23 is Katherine's first day in the office! Katherine and Emma Kate will be driving down on Friday, November 20th and moving into an apartment here in Raleigh. Drew, Ruthie, Margaret and Drew's parents, Faith & Jay Rick will join her on Wednesday, November 25th for Thanksgiving and will be in church for Katherine's first Sunday as our pastor on November 29.

Meet Our New Pastor!
The Pastor Nominating Committee and WRPC's Session was 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: Katherine's First Day!
