The Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina has two conference centers and a life-changing summer camp that will be celebrating a Day of Giving on St Patrick’s Day, Wednesday, March 17.
Day of Giving is an opportunity for supporters of camp and retreat ministry to lift the ministries of Lake Logan Conference Center, Camp Henry, and Valle Crucis Conference Center.
Community support means there will be space and time available for people seeking connection with God, one another, and the beauty of creation.
Lake Logan Conference Center and Camp Henry’s Goals for Day of Giving, said center director Lauri Sojourner are 1) to receive 100 new unrestricted gifts and pledges for the ministries; 2) welcome at least 10 new Trailblazers who give a minimum of $25 per month/$300 per year designated to the Conference Center and 3) welcome at least 10 new Firebuilders who give a minimum of $10 per month/$120 per year designated to Camp Henry.
Follow Lake Logan on social media for special messages March 8 through 16 and learn what these places have meant to the personal, physical, and spiritual growth of thousands of youth and adults in Western North Carolina and beyond.
During that week, supporters are asked to update their social media profiles with Lake Logan Conference Center and Camp Henry profile photo frames and make a post about why they feel lucky to love Lake Logan and Camp Henry.
Here’s what your Day of Giving donation provides:
• Scholarships so that Lake Logan and Camp Henry are available for every person who needs to spend time on holy ground in communion with God, the Earth, and one another.
• Educational opportunities and respite for clergy and lay people so that they can be better ministers to the world.
• Upkeep of historic buildings that have provided shelter, places for worship and fellowship, and education for over 100 years.
• Preservation of unspoiled land that honors its creator and its history and the wildlife that lives there.
