The Carlisle Chamber of Commerce discussed details of the upcoming local Christian workforce event during the Jan. 8 Chamber meeting.


Carlisle United Methodist Church Pastor Randy Rowlan presented an informational video to Chamber members, which was an overview for the one day Work as Worship retreat for the business community.
