Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our programs and some outreach ministries have been put on hold.  We are working on connecting through social media, various electronic programs such as Zoom and Constant Contact, in addition to finding other ways to serve our community during these unprecedented times. 
 
 
CUMC Scholarship application and cover letter are now available.  The application deadline has past.  Please pray for the Scholarship Committee as they seek to help the youth in the Cashiers area in making their dreams of a post-secondary education possible. 
 
Circles of Hope:  (program on hold) CUMC is responsible for one meal a month for Circles of Hope and we need volunteers on the 2nd Thursday of each month.  The tasks are simple - set up for the meal, serve the meal, and clean up. There will be help in preparing the meal.  What a privilege this is to be involved with this effective program to lead people from "surviving to thriving."  Please contact the church with questions.
