New Professional Church Pictorial Directory coming soon!
Every family who participates in the new directory will get a free 8x10 family portrait, a printed directory, and access to our online directory.  Photo sitting times are generally about 20 minutes, and the entire process about 45 minutes - this includes a check-in and a time to select the photos you wish to purchase.  Photo appointments are on a first come first serve basis and can be made online by clicking here which will take you to a secure website at The Portrait Cafe.  You can also call The Portrait Cafe at 1-877-896-9667 ext. 360 to make your appointment directly with the company.  We have someone on Sunday mornings to help make appointments if that is your preference. We have two more days of photo-shoots -   Sunday, August 26th and Monday, August 27th - both days in the afternoon.  You will need an email address when you register, so if you don't have one, please use The Portrait Cafe's email - dfox@theportraitcafe.com.  There are many backgrounds to choose from to personalize your photo.  If you consider CUMC your church family, whether you are a year-round or part year resident, please sign up to be included in our directory.
Upcoming Opportunities
Hike at Shoal Creek Mountain Rd. (off Hwy 107 N - north of Glenville) is next Sunday, August 19th, following the 10:30 worship service.  Bring a bagged lunch, water, and comfortable walking shoes for this medium difficulty hike.  Meet at the CUMC pavilion beside the large back parking lot after worship for our bagged lunch and then off to hike.
Summer Season Sendoff will be Sunday, September 9th, at our 10:30 service with a potluck lunch after worship.  This has traditionally been our Homecoming service which will have a different look this year with a beautiful service, "Our Beloved Mountains" with photographs of the mountains and wildlife by Bill Lea, special music by Bryan Heller, and scriptures which will tell the story.  We will have a potluck lunch following the service in the Fellowship Hall.  This is also our end of season farewell to our summer residents.
Kreative Kidz Zone will begin on Wednesday, August 12th.  This after-school program will feature various fine arts activities throughout the fall and spring sessions: art of movement and dance, music, arts and crafts, art of construction, art of gardening, art of flight, and a devotion each week. Registration will begin soon.  We will pick up from both schools and can return children to the Boys & Girls Club afterwards if needed.
The International Interns have arrived in Cashiers.  As in past years, we are connecting with them to provide fun and support to them while they are in our area for the summer.  Mark your calendar now to help with some or all these events which are once a month on Tuesdays:  June 19th -  Welcome to Cashiers Pizza Party with outdoor games from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.; July - no activity; August 14th - Shopping at mall in Asheville from 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.; September 11 -  boating and picnic on Lake Glenville from 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.; October 30 - Zip lining at Sapphire Resort and hiking at Whitewater Falls (time TBA).
