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 to the left and below 
to find more information about areas of interest to you.
 
Summer Music Camp will be here soon.  This is a wonderful opportunity for children, and even youth helpers, to learn about and experience music and have fun.  Click here for a participant's registration form and here for a youth help form.
 
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 an hour - 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.  The July photography dates are full, so August dates have been opened:  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.  
 
Upcoming Opportunities
Singles Meet, Greet, and Eat on Saturday, July 21st at 10:00 a.m. Plan now to attend this gathering hosted by Judy Hall at her home in Sapphire Valley.  Come and make new friend and fellowship with old friends while enjoying brunch catered by Graceann Smith.

The International Interns are arriving in Cashiers.  As in past years, we will be 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).
Bryan Heller's piano concert will be on Sunday, August 12th at 2:00 p.m.  This concert is always a "crowd-pleaser" so don't miss out on this opportunity.  The concert is free but a love offering will be taken.  This concert will include a variety of musical styles from Classical to Gospel.
Whiteside Mountain Hike on Sunday, July 22nd following the worship service.  Join together for a medium to difficult hike up the old road bed and then to the cliffs.  There are places where you can leave the hike if it gets too difficult.  Bring a lunch and comfortable shoes.  Meet at the pavilion for lunch and fellowship followed by the hike.
