Welcome!

Welcome and thanks so much for visiting the website of Wake Forest Presbyterian Church.  Entering this site may be your first step in learning more about our Christ-centered congregation, where we seek to grow in our relationship with the living Lord, Jesus Christ, and then, in response to his amazing grace, how we seek to live out this relationship with Christ in every area of our lives.

As you navigate your way through our site, I hope you will get a better sense of who we are and what we believe we are called to do. I especially hope you will be interested enough to come and worship with us on Sunday morning at one of our two worship experiences at either 9:00 AM or 11:15 AM. I would love to be able to greet you in person and introduce you to some of our members who will gladly welcome you into the warm and loving atmosphere that this congregation offers. If you are searching for a church home, or if you have a longing for belonging, we have a place for you here at Wake Forest Presbyterian Church!

JIM WARD, after accumulating more than 1300 volunteer hours since 2007, was named Volunteer of the Year at Duke Raleigh Hospital. Jim is a "Care Ambassador," which means he delivers newspapers and flowers to all the patients, helps them and their visitors navigate the complicated hospital campus, and even sings "Happy Birthday" to them if they happen to be hospitalized on their special day. Congratulations to Jim on this well-deserved honor!
