We welcome folks of all denominations to our services, held on Sundays at 11:00 AM.  We meet only in the summer and have no membership roll, so you won’t feel like a guest.  Each Sunday, we have clergy from different churches that visit us to lead the service and we are blessed to also have great music to accompany the great message!

This Sunday, Faith Memorial Chapel welcomes The Rev. Shelly Webb.  Shelly currently serves as the Executive Director of Sharing House, Transylvania County’s faith collaborative ministry for crisis assistance with low-resourced neighbors.  

Selections of music this Sunday will be provided by Ann Marie Bates.  Ann Marie lives in Fletcher, North Carolina with her husband and their five pound Yorkie, Molly. Ann Marie works as a singer and private voice teacher and is working on certification for mental health and life coaching. She also assists her husband in pastoral and family ministries in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.



There will be a chicken dinner fundraiser at the Cedar Mountain Canteen on Sunday July 7th for the Cedar Mountain Fire Rescue Department.  The dinner will include a baked potato, Roasted sweet corn, salad and beverage.  Watch for additional information.


Thanks Cedar Mountain Rotary Club and Brevard High School Garden Club for Spring Clean-Up Efforts on May 19th, the Brevard High School Garden Club arrived to complete the spring clean-up at the Community Center.

Five dedicated members of the Garden Club worked diligently to weed the newly planted area of the garden, ensuring the Community Center grounds are ready for Primetime.

The Cedar Mountain Community Center would also like to extend its heartfelt gratitude to the Cedar Mountain Rotary Club for their outstanding participation in a Spring clean- up event held on the morning of April 13th. The Rotary Club members showcased their community spirit and dedication by gathering at the Center and immediately getting to work. During the clean-up, the Rotary Club members enthusiastically pulled weeds, cleaned the pavilion, spread mulch, and installed new plants around the Center, making it an even more inviting space for all residents and visitors.

The Rotary Club, which recently relocated to the Community Center, holds its meetings there at 5:30 PM on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. For those interested in learning more about the Rotary Club or attending a meeting, please contact Cathy Haupert at The Club welcomes new members and visitors who share their passion for community service and fellowship. This new partnership has already proven to be beneficial, fostering a stronger sense of community and collaboration.

Thank you again to these groups for their exemplary service and commitment to our community.  Your efforts have truly made a difference!



Today we had a real adventure playing "Worst Ball Scramble Shamble.” It was challenging and different for sure!  In the end the team of Mary Law, Mo Kitchen-Law and Carol Mitchell had the lowest score. Next week we will be playing "Like Handicaps,” which is an individual game. Please be at the course by 8:30 a.m. for our 9 a.m. start. If you're running late, call the clubhouse at 828-884-7825 to let us know you're on your way. Also, if rain threatens, watch for emails from Sue Wojcik or another board member about whether the course is open (or call the clubhouse). Follow us on Facebook (Sherwood Ladies Golf) to see photos and more information about our league.

CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace


 PAST: This past week, on Memorial Day Monday, the “Frank Watson Family Band” spent over 2 hours at Sapphire Ridge Health & Rehab in Brevard, performing foot-stomping Blue Grass and other old favorites.  They came in gratitude to the care our nursing home extends to our “family” of residents and visitors alike.  It was their gift to us!

PRESENT: This week the 22nd annual “Gourd Gathering” kicked off on Wednesday, June 5th, and goes thru Sunday.  This 5-day gourd event is the largest in our area.  You can see the many classes offered by going to their web site:  You’ll see that I’m teaching a class Saturday afternoon on sculpting mini warty-gourd sheep.  There’s plenty to do all day long, including several 1-hour “Make & Take” classes for a low $10. /each.     This year’s location is The Smoky Mountain Event Center located at 758 Crabtree Rd in Waynesville, NC 28785.  This is not the same show as our own “Mountain Gourd Gathering” held here in Cedar Mountain the 2nd week in August.     For 20 years the Gourd Gathering was held at the Indian Fair Grounds in Cherokee, NC; last year & this year it is in Waynesville.  It’s worth the trip, and is a beautiful drive!

FUTURE:  This coming Sunday, June 9th, pastor Jerry Willingham will present the message at Rocky Hill Baptist Church at 11am (Sunday school at 10am).  Rocky Hill is just past the Cedar Mountain Fire Department, on the left.  Address is 10811 Greenville Hwy (Hwy 276-S).All are invited.


AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

The weeds are winning.  I have been painstakingly weeding my back yard mossary by individual weed.  It looks great as far as I’ve gotten but it is a big area.  My front yard is despicably crammed with unwanted vegetation.  I have given up on that and hired help.  Most of it is native ferns and moss, but I unknowingly planted a tall decorative “weed” years ago that looks great but spreads fast.  It is taking over the yard.  Hopefully most of them will be gone on Wednesday.  I’ll let you know.

I want to thank the folks on Nextdoor that helped me find the yardman and crew I used earlier.  I had lost his phone number.
