Special Events

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.

This year's event will feature two very effective speakers and leaders:  John Shero, preacher for the Southgate Church of Christ in San Angelo, and John Cannon, former full-time preacher for the Walnut Church of Christ in Texarkana. They will be sharing their experience and insight on what it means to "Man Up" and prepare to pass the baton to the next generation of male Christian leaders.

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.  The event will begin at 10 a.m. and end around 4 p.m.

Cherokee Day 2021

Cherokee Day is our most important day of the year.  We set aside the first Saturday in May as a special Open House and Food Drive to fill our pantry and collect funds for needed grocery items.  It also serves as a wonderful day of fellowship for current and past donors, visitors, and returning staff and residents.

Congregations, businesses, and individuals bring donations in-kind and cash donations to provide the needed grocery items for the following 12 months.  While on campus we have a wonderful BBQ lunch together, a short program, and plenty of time for tours of our campus and chances to meet our children and staff.

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 7, 2022!

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.
