Arts Ministry

feltdovesLearn more about the current activities and feature artists of the Arts Ministry!

We are called by God to be artists of a new creation. This creative vocation is a sign of the new life that is ours in Jesus Christ. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we have received gifts of imagination, creativity, of poetry and song, of dance, drama and vision. How will you use those sacred gifts? We hope that you will be inspired as you seek to respond to your creative calling.

Kitchen Brigade

Churches are all about nourishment – soul and body! This group takes feeding seriously!  Every second Sunday, this team prepares a delicious luncheon which the congregation enjoys following worship.

There are some very special occasions where they are able to go all out, such as at the All-Church Dinner on the second Sunday of Advent. This meal has been generously paid for by a member so that everyone attending may enjoy the feast and festivity!  

If you love to cook, this is your ministry! Others are needed to clean up following each meal. Training is provided. Whether cooking or cleaning up, this is a great time of fellowship.  If you are interested in learning more or getting involved, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Martha Ministry

Martha MinistryMartha, the ministry's namesake, is the sister of Mary and Lazarus. In the biblical reference, she is doing something practical (Luke 10:40, John 11:20, 28, and 39: 12:2). Having said that, the Martha Ministry was founded to be an active and confidential aid within the West Raleigh church family.

This ministry should not be confused with the Stephen Ministry, which lends a listening ear whereas the Martha Ministry lends a hand.

Members may need assistance for reasons ranging from illness to bad weather. Whatever the reason, the Martha Ministry will try to provide the needed services. Volunteers deliver meals, provide transportation, and help with convalescent care, cut the grass – small things that make a big difference for someone needing some extra support.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Our Prayer Shawl Ministry entails knitting shawls to give to those who are in need of comfort, healing, and help. Shawls are made and blessed before being given away. Those who receive them are wrapped and enfolded with prayers for protection and health, strength and consolation.
