Dear Members & Friends of West Raleigh,
Just like dawn is the transition between night and day and dusk is that time in-between night and day, September is our time of transition between the summer sabbatical and new seasons of ministry. This is precious time to enJoy the reunion, share our stories, reflect on where we have been and begin the journey toward a new season of ministry. The Rick-Miller’s are full to overflowing with gratitude and with stories! We are also curious to hear the stories from your summer! This return is truly a reJoyning, and we look forward to each opportunity the next month holds to share in it…which is why we begin with additional dates and details for the journey!
THIS Sunday, September 10 is Rally Day!
Ministry Fair - 9:45 AM in the Fellowship Hall
See you at 9:45am in the Fellowship Hall. Members of West Raleigh’s wide variety of ministries will be on-hand to help you find your place. What has bubbled up inside you this summer? How might you be feeling called to serve? Do you need a particular kind of care? Are you looking to learn something new or try a new spiritual practice? Bring these questions and wonderings to the Ministry Fair and enJoy good conversation and connections.
