Big Yard Sale set to begin this Thursday

The town-wide yard sale isn’t for another month, but in the Sooner State folks are just likely to jump the gun on selling and finding bargains.  The Cumberland Presbyterian Elementary Youth are holding a yard sale at 323 Suwannee in Burns Flat beginning this Thursday and continuing through Saturday. 

Why a 3-day sale?

The answer is because they have too much to sell in one day and bargains arrive new each day. You will want to buy something every time you stop in.

Why should I go to this yard sale?

The answer is that these sales help send elementary youth to church camp this June.  Camp is a place where many transformations take place but it costs $300 per child to go to camp.  It is expensive but well worth it.

So what are those who can’t afford it to do?  Raise money!  Selling hotdogs at Atwoods, silent auctions, and yes—a 3-day yard sale helps these youth earn their way to camp.

These youth belong to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Burns Flat, Oklahoma.  You may have seen them handing out Gospels of John or blue wrist-bands that say:  God loves you – Love one another.  This week they need a little boost to get them to camp.

Donations are being accepted starting Monday and continuing through the week.  The sale begins on Thursday morning at 8:00 a.m.  Donate something that you don’t need anymore.  Buy something that you can’t live without.  Send a kid to camp!

Class of 2017 Baccalaureate to be held at 3:00 p.m. Sunday

The Class of 2017 cordially invites you to worship the Lord and celebrate the forthcoming graduation of these young men and women at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday.  This year’s Baccalaureate will be held at the Burns Flat-Dill City High School Cafetorium on 7 May 2017.

Baccalaureate is a Christian worship service held in an academic institution for and often by the graduates of the institution.  The service is believed to have originated at the University of Oxford, England in 1432.  At that time every graduate receiving their “first” or bachelor’s degree offered a homily, often in Latin.  Our community is blessed to continue these services in this century with these high school seniors.  This year, the graduates present the entire worship service. Please worship God with these graduating men and women.
