In 1910, the United Presbyterian Church in North America formally adopted a set of mission statements that was intended to define its life and work. Called the Six Great Ends of the Church, these brief phrases attempted to draw together elements of belief and practice that could be traced through our confessional history to the very teachings of Jesus himself as they are recorded in the Gospels.
Dear Members & Friends of West Raleigh,
With joy and gratitude, relief and longing I join the Critical Care Team and the Session in announcing that West Raleigh will move back into the Sanctuary to worship together on Sunday, July 11th! It has been 69 Sundays since we worshiped inside the Sanctuary at the corner of Vanderbilt and Horne. So much has changed. Through all of the change and uncertainty, our core identity as the people of God, gathered to worship – every week – never changed. Thanks be to God!
So, what will worship look and sound like when we gather on July 11th?
Our Congregation values inclusion across faith experiences, sexual orientations, gender expressions, and cultural backgrounds. We believe it is our responsibility to bring the kingdom of God to our world through our love of and service to others. We believe that affirming More Light makes a statement about these beliefs to the world, making clear our commitment to include all voices and value all our brothers, sisters, and siblings.
