Class for Drivers 50+

Join us at the Cathedral Thursday, August 16 for the AARP's Smart Driver course. The course is a six-hour refresher aimed at motorists 50 years old and older. Some of the objectives of the class include understanding the effects of aging on driving; learning driving strategies that take into account the changes we experience as we age; and a number of other topics designed to make you a safer driver. At the completion of the class, you may be eligible to receive a discount on your automobile insurance policy.

Help BCM Launch New Food Assistance Concept

In lieu of its traditional August Food Drive, Buckhead Christian Ministry (BCM) has asked our Cathedral parishioners to partner with them in the development of an updated client-choice food pantry. Instead of donating non-perishable food items, you can prayerfully provide a monetary donation which will serve as seed money for this exciting endeavor. People from the community will be able to shop for their own groceries in the new food pantry, helping reduce food waste and promoting human dignity.

New Initiative for Adults with Cognitive Challenges

The Cathedral is part of a new initiative to provide weekday adult respite care in our community, staffed primarily by volunteers. With six other congregations, we have formed Respite Care Atlanta to offer a safe place for those with mild cognitive impairment to interact with others, as well as give caregivers time for self-care. The program is scheduled to operate four days a week from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a targeted ratio of one volunteer for every two participants. We are currently recruiting volunteers and participants from our founding congregations. Potential volunteers, please contact Lola Battle, batlola@att.net, or Mary Caroline Cravens, marycarolined@cs.com. Caregivers of potential participants, please contact: Wendy Liverant, director, at 404-591-4365 or wliverant@spdl.org. For more information, visit respitecareatlanta.org.
