Special Events

Cherokee Day 2021

This year instead of a quiet campus on the first Saturday of May, we will fire up the grills and host a DRIVE-THROUGH CHEROKEE DAY!  Guests will enter campus by our new arched entrance to begin your driving tour of our campus.  Be ready to wave at our family who will be scattered across campus excited about your arrival.  Those of you with groceries and/or check and cash donations will stop at the pantry where we will unload your items while you relax in your vehicle.  Finally, you will be invited to cruise through our take-out line at the pavilion and pick up a delicious barbecue sandwich sack lunch to enjoy on your ride home.   

We know Cherokee Day will look and feel different this year, but we will be thrilled to have you on campus for this significant event.  It will be such a blessing for our staff and children to see the smiling faces of those who serve us!

Perhaps your congregation could designate a “Cherokee Day Sunday” and take a special collection and/or have members fill your church foyer with groceries.  If you would like for your congregation to focus on a few items to collect, please contact us for a list.

Please begin planning how you will impact His children and mark your calendars for:  SATURDAY, MAY 1!

Drive through anytime between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Annual "Man Up!", Men's Fellowship Day

'Man Up' 2021 is on!  Join us on September 18!

Each year on the 3rd Saturday in September we have a special gathering for men, called "Man Up!".  This event is designed to give husbands, fathers, and their sons an opportunity to have fun, bond with other men, and get some spiritual feeding and encouragement.  2019's event featured Brad McCoy (father of Washington Redskins quarterback and former NCAA championship Univ. of Texas quarterback, Colt McCoy) as the speaker.  He, and a panel of experienced fathers/husbands, led us in thoughts about what it means to "Take a Stand and Take the Lead" as Christian men in today's world.  (We are hopeful that we will be able to have the event this year. Watch for announcements.)

In addition to spiritual feeding, there will be other things to enjoy.  A great BBQ lunch will be served and there will be a small silent auction of some quality "manly" items.  Throughout the day there will be displays and demonstrations of "typically manly" skills and hobbies, such as knife forging, archery, Western jewelry making, handloading, firearms assembly, and more.  Some displays will include fun contests with prizes.

For questions you might have please write us chcdd@centex.net, or call 325-622-4201.

Ladies' Day

Our annual Ladies Day is held in February.  We begin around 10:00 a.m. with a lite fare breakfast followed by singing, a special speaker, games, lunch, and great fellowship.  Each year we like to have our staff and girls in care involved so that you may get to know us better.  Our day usually wraps up around 3:00 p.m.  All are invited to participate.  There is no cost for the day.  It is our goal that you will see our work, meet our staff and girls, and choose to be a part of our work by becoming a prayer warrior and an ambassador for the family at CHC.  RSVPs are appreciated so that we may be adequately prepared.
