1 Church, 3 Fellowships
East Raleigh Fellowship is part of a unique Presbyterian Community. We exist as three semi-autonomous fellowships with different styles of worship, that come together as one church with many shared ministries.
Presbyterian Churches are led by staff and lay persons gathered together and known as a Session. Our elders provide spiritual guidance and oversight of the church. We have 9 Elders are elected by the entire East Raleigh Community and serve three year terms.
Milner Memorial Church was organized in 1923 as First Vanguard congregation located at the corner of Martin and Swain Streets in Raleigh. The church moved to their present location at 1950 New Bern Avenue in 1955. This was made possible by the generous donation of land and money by Mr. Henry H. Milner, who is also buried in the churchyard. The congregation first built and met in the fellowship hall and later added an educational building, and our modernist sanctuary.
