Our Vision and Mission
North Raleigh Church of Christ exists to be a caring, connected, and engaged community of Christ followers who love God and love others.
The journey as a disciple begins as we commit to “Know God.” This knowledge is far deeper than simply knowing “about” him or being able to recall facts from the words of Scripture. As we grow in our understanding of God, it follows to “Honor Jesus” with our personal life mission and purpose. As we grow in our appreciation of His great love and mercy, our relationship with God and his Son compels us to “Love Family” and instills a desire to “Serve All” as He opens our eyes to the needs and struggles of the world around us. None of these principles stand alone. North Raleigh Church of Christ believes that each of these principles will be seen in increasing measure over time as the Spirit continues to do his transforming work within our lives.
“Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.” ~2 Timothy 4:2

Elysa Henegar, Communications / Ladies’ Ministry
Elysa Henegar grew up on the coast, in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. In 1983, God redeemed her life, by grace, when she named Christ as her Lord and Savior. She graduated from Vanderbilt University with a dual degree in human psychology and English, with honors in creative writing. She publishes weekly blog posts about what God teaches her through every day following at elysahenegar.com. “Most importantly,” she says, “I am a clay vessel in God’s hands, and He surprises me all the time with new equipping and new function.” She is a Bible class teacher, a communicator, and especially a mom of three. Elysa says, “I married my best friend almost 20 years ago, and he is a constant reminder of God’s abundant grace in my life.”
Kim Harrison, Administrative Assistant
Hi! I am Kim Harrison and I have the wonderful opportunity to serve as the Secretary of North Raleigh Church of Christ. I have been employed by our church since 1999. I received my degree at Freed-Hardeman University where I met my husband, David Harrison. We have three adult children, a son-in-law, and three grandchildren. In my position as the church secretary, I love the different people I encounter and sharing the love of Christ with them. In our church, I serve with my sisters in Christ in our Ladies Ministry planning events and on our Communications Committee. I love the beach no matter the season, riding motorcycles in our beautiful Blue Ridge mountains and a good cup of coffee. My greatest love is in my Heavenly Father, enjoying his wonderful gifts, and spending time with family.
North Raleigh Church of Christ is a community of believers who worship and fellowship together regularly.
“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.” ~1 Peter 5:2-3
“In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.” ~1 Timothy 3:8-13
