On March 16, following the 11:00 service the West Raleigh Presbyterian congregation is invited to join in celebrating a Wheels4Hope car blessing. A 1999 Buick Regal donated by a WRPC family is being placed with Aleesha and her 2 children. Aleesha was referred to Wheels4Hope through Habitat for Humanity.
During the blessing West Raleigh will share a card congratulating her on her success and new means of travel. Please stop by the parlor on Sunday and sign your name to congratulate Aleesha. Read more: Wheels4Hope Car Blessing
Lent is the season of the Christian Year that is observed as a time of simple living, prayer and spiritual disciplines leading up to Easter. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 5. This is a time of self-examination and reflection as modeled by Jesus in Matthew 4: 1-11 where he prayed and fasted for 40 days before beginning his ministry of teaching and healing, calling wandering people closer to the heart of God.
We, too are invited into this time of introspection. This year West Raleigh will journey through the season of Lent focusing our hearts on The Beatitudes, one beatitude per week, paired with a Psalm. In addition to hearing the Word proclaimed and sung during Sunday morning worship, a variety of ways to engage the Beatitudes and Psalms will be offered.Read more: A Focused Heart--Centering on the Beatitudes and Psalms for Lent
