+ Christ has no hands but yours +
Welcome to Cashiers United Methodist Church Website.  
We hope you will find us to be a warm, inviting, and spirit-filled congregation. 
Whether you have just moved to the Cashiers area or have lived here all your life,
we'd love to have you in our faith community.  
Please click on the various links above and below to find more information 
about areas of interest to you.
 
Advent Fair is coming - Join us on Sunday, December 10, following the 11:00 worship service for a time of good food (light lunch prepared by Chef David), fellowship, and a chance to make things to put in the baskets that will be taken to the shut-ins later in the afternoon.  After the baskets are prepared, we will bundle up, load the bus and van, and go caroling as we deliver the baskets to the shut-ins and bring Christmas cheer to them.
Intergenerational Advent Experience - Join us on Sunday mornings during Advent (Dec. 3, 10, 17 & 24) in the fellowship hall, from 9:30 - 10:30 AM for contemporary music, prayer, Scripture, a short lesson, and an activity.  Activities include making home advent wreaths, decorating cookies for the shut-in baskets, playing minute-to-win-it games, and making doves artwork.
 
BLESSINGS ABOUND!
Christmas Shoebox Project - We partnered with the other Cashiers area churches to collect items for the Samaritan Purse Christmas Shoebox mission project.  We then gathered with our sister churches and packed over 200 shoeboxes which will be sent to children around the world so that they too will have Christmas and know the love of Jesus.
Fishes and Loaves Food Pantry - November is our month to work and serve those needing food assistance.  We are also taking donations for Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes which are $36 each.  On Sunday, November 19, we will take a special offering during worship to help support Fishes & Loaves.
Angel Tree - We still have angels on our tree that need to be adopted.  The cost to you is $65, a little time, and a big heart.  Please help one of our angels in our community by adopting him/her for Christmas and providing much needed gifts.
 
The Cashiers Community Chorus is already practicing for the Christmas Cantata, "God With Us" which will be presented on Sunday afternoon, December 3rd at 3:00 p.m. at CUMC.  Practices are also at CUMC on Thursdays at 6:00 p.m.  No auditions - everyone is welcome to join this group if you love to sing.  Betty Morris is the director and Bryan Heller accompanist.  Come join us and get into the Christmas spirit early!  As an added bonus, the Young Singers of the Plateau will be singing on December 3rd along with the Cashiers Community Chorus.
Kreative Kidz Zone, our new children's program, is in full swing.  Children in grades kindergarten - 5th are invited to participate on Wednesdays from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. throughout the school year.  Click here for more information and to download a registration form.
ELL (English Language Learners) classes are in full swing.  This outreach program was a huge success last year and we are providing this opportunity again this year.   We are partnering with Church of the Good Shepherd, who is the host church for these classes, on Mondays at 6:00 through April.  For more information or to see how you can help with this mission opportunity, please contact the church office at 743-5298.
