CAM Conference
If you call them, they will come

Many Holston events take years to cultivate an attendance of a few hundred. In its inaugural year, "Calling All Men" attracted an estimated 750 men. What happened at Sevierville Events Center on Aug. 15-16?

Reading List
Six guys, six books. We asked these participants at Calling All Men, "What book is lying on your nightstand?" 

Break out of the "Sunday box"
It's Sunday morning. Mom is working. Dad and the kids are at a soccer game. How far should churches go to accommodate conflicting schedules? (Interpreter Magazine) 

19 ways to reach kids
Nineteen groups have just won "Change for Children" grants. Here's how  three small churches -- Trentville, West Market, and Community -- used their grants to reach children in the community. (Sixteen more to come in future editions!)

It happened three years ago
United Methodist churches are urged to remember the ongoing Katrina Recovery Church Appeal by taking a special offering on or near Aug. 29. Donations are needed as well as skilled workers for the Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama-West Florida Conferences.
