In the December 13 newsletter, we gave you an update on Office Manager Elizabeth Takla’s departure and shared that the Personnel Committee was in the process of finalizing a contract with an accounting firm that specializes in churches. We have contracted with Trinity Concepts, which works with a number of churches in the area, to support us through a transition period of 3-4 months.

Their founder, and our contact with Trinity, is Burke Raper. Learn more about Burke. You can contact Burke directly at He will be around WPC most mornings in January and February, so stop by and introduce yourself! Please direct any finance-related questions to him.

Over the next few months, the Personnel Committee will assess the church’s needs in financial oversight and property management, develop a job description, and begin a search by the spring. Our Administrative Assistant Barb Schmidt will help triage any property-related questions, and you can call her at the church office (919-489-4974, ext. 100).
