On March 3, 2018, we kicked off both our Capital and Annual Campaign drives at the Woman's Club of Chevy Chase, Maryland with a Building Our Vision Luncheon (pictured above.) Thanks to the dedication of many Cedar Lane lay leaders, we are in the process of visiting all Cedar Lane families, listening to their hopes and dreams for Cedar Lane. The future of our building and this spiritual community rests with all of us. You will find updates for both of the campaigns below. If you wish to find out more about the campaigns and Cedar Lane's vision for its future, please schedule your visit with one of our Cedar Lane visiting stewards today.

From the Capital Assests Planning Commitee:
On Saturday, October 27, 2018, more than 50 members participated in a workshop with Ritter Norton Architects (RNA,) sponsored by the Capital Assets Planning Committee (CAPC.) CAPC had asked RNA to address a couple of issues that had been raised during capital campaign visits. Namely, the separation of the proposed social hall from the kitchen; and proposed relocation of church offices. RNA presented two alternative solutions, which prompted lively discussion. Both are described more fully in the workshop summary here. CAPC members will be in the Lounge after worship this Sunday.
