Cherokee Day Open House and Food Drive

Cherokee Day Open House and Food Drive is held the first Saturday of May each year.  This is the big day for our collecting groceries and cash to help with food expenses for the following year, as well as our chance to have you on our campus and thank you for your generous support.  We provide you, our special guests, with a delicious BBQ lunch, complete with all the fixings, around noon.  You are welcome to come early before lunch or stay later after to tour our campus, buildings, and cottages.

Annual "Man Up! Day", men's fellowship day

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.  This year's event (September 21, 2019) will feature 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, will lead us in thoughts about what it means to "Take a Stand and Take the Lead" as Christian men in today's world.

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.

This is an RSVP event.  PLEASE RSVP NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 12 by emailing, or call 325-622-4201.
