Of the several issues that seem to cross all church lines in ecumenical work, one certainly is the challenge of fostering stewardship and effective fundraising. For that reason I am passing along the following information about a training course that will take place in January in Louisville. Discounted tuition is available for those who register before November 1.

There is a new traffic pattern on the way to Cedar Ridge Camp.  

There is no longer a right turn from Taylorsville Road onto Taylorsville Lake Road.  The two roads have been merged together into a smooth bend.  

Hopefully, this will improve traffic conditions in the area.  

Please make a note of these changes as you come out to Autumn Under the Cedars.
