CAMPING SUNDAY

Hi there,

Warm Greetings!!

As the days get longer, and our part of the earth gets warmer, it is time to start thinking about camping - in particular- Church Camping!!! We are blessed in Newfoundland and Labrador Conference to have three United Church Camps: West Haven, Loon Bay and Burry Heights. These are beautiful places where magical things happen every summer - seeds of faith are sown and nurtured, new friendships are made, and fun is the goal every day.

This Sunday, April 26th, is "officially" Camping Sunday. However, I would invite charges to choose any suitable and convenient Sunday this Spring to celebrate church camping. Have a special service and celebrate this wonderful local ministry. On that day have your particular camp's brochures available and invite children and teens to go to camp this summer. Encourage adults to consider volunteering at camp. Finally, consider having a special offering to support your particular Camp.

Attached you will find the Camping Service for this year, including the message. Use it as is, or adapt it. Other resources can be found here:

Please remember to promote and celebrate church camping this Spring ... and pray for the Volunteer Camp Boards as they busily prepare for another great season!

General Secretaries Weekly Letter

Dear Friends;

This is the World Council of Churches (WCC) Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

It’s quite a mouthful, but I always love the idea of joining in prayer with people all over the world. (Or at least in the northern hemisphere. I note from the WCC website that the southern hemisphere does it during Pentecost. I’m not sure what that says about unity, except that it is something we Christians continue to work toward.)
