BURRY HEIGHTS DAY

Mark your calendars for September 20, 2014

BURRY HEIGHTS DAY

- A day of fun, food, friendship, and song

- meet old friends – make new

- enjoy lunch and/or supper

YOUR SUPPORT MAKES IT HAPPEN!

Come – invite family and friends to experience the “SPIRIT” – our youth call it MAGIC – of Burry Heights

We will send you an update before summer ends. Please keep in mind that, at that time we will be inviting you for your support in ways such as these:

- Donations for the silent auction

- Donations for our pantry stall (baked goods, preserves – jams, jellies, beets, pickles – as you preserve the goodness of summer in jars consider keeping Burry Heights in mind…)

- Crafts – whimsical or practical – the choice is yours

- Handicrafts (mitts, socks, placements – let your imagination be your guide…)

- Gifts of time and talents for our talent show – keep those instruments in tune and come September – share your gifts with the Burry Heights community of friends

- Monetary donations toward the evening meal are always welcome and help offset the costs of food preparation and staff salaries

Thank you for thinking of Burry Heights.

On the 3rd Saturday in September, we look forward to seeing you again or meeting you for the first time.

Enjoy a safe wonder-filled summer,

Burry Heights Board of Directors

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.)
