It's our annual appeal this month. We aim to raise money for general operations, retreat scholarships, and future rainy days. You can read more about where we're at in our Annual Appeal Letter. This page right here is the easiest place to make a donation (see that big DONATION button over there?). Below are links to some of the things we've got going on this year at Red Cedar.

We also of course have our regular weekly schedule, with sitting, service, and/or private interview Wednesday evenings, Friday midday, and Saturday mornings.
