Old-Fashioned Sunday School spring curriculum 
Sunday, April 27, 2014
Do you wonder sometimes what Christians are supposed to believe? This spring we will explore what the Apostles Creed has to say about the central beliefs of the Christian faith. But, we'll do it in a slightly different way than you may have experienced in the past. Each Sunday, we'll take one of the statements made in the ancient Creed and reflect on it through the lens of a more contemporary work. Using David Cunningham's book, Reading is Believing, we'll draw on novels, plays, and films by authors like Dickens, Shakespeare, P. D. James, and Graham Greene to show how the Creed can create and sustain meaning in our lives.

Carpenter’s Kids 
Monday, June 04, 2012
Cathedral members have had the opportunity for the last several years to begin a life-changing partnership with a child in Tanzania through the Carpenter’s Kids program. A pledge of $80/year for five years gives an HIV/AIDS orphan, or other vulnerable child, an opportunity to go to school. Your pledge covers the cost of a school uniform, shoes, socks, and breakfast each school day for one child. The ingathering of pledges for Carpenter’s Kids has begun. An email to those already pledging, updating your pledge status, should be in your inbox soon. Email questions to or call Kimberly McOmber at 404-467-9425. New pledges can be made online. If you prefer to put your pledge in the offering plate at a Cathedral service, please remember to put Carpenter’s Kids in the memo line of your check. Thank you for your continued support.

Once a Youth Sunday School registration OR a Youth Confirmation registration has been submitted for a youth, we will keep all the personal, contact, and emergency/medical information on file. Once we have this information, you won’t need to provide it again; all you will need to do to sign up for individual activities is to go online and submit your name, any activity-specific information that might be requested, and release information. All this can be taken care of at If you prefer not to have the information on file at the Cathedral, you will need to fill out the full form for each activity.
