Happy New Year to the Emmaus Family!

I greet you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

It was good to see so many of you last Saturday evening at our Kick-off Gathering for 2020.

Please pray for the entire Emmaus family, the Emmaus Board, and especially for the upcoming spring Men’s Walk #111 and Women’s Walk #112. Both of the men and women’s walks are currently accepting Pilgrim applications. If you have someone you would like to sponsor, please go to Southside for an application.

I would like to ask for volunteers from the Emmaus Community who would like to serve on the following two committees: Agape Committee and Entertainment & Function Committee. I would appreciate it if you would contact me if you would like to serve or know of someone else who might be interested.

Special thanks to the outgoing Emmaus Board Members for their faithful service: Betty Jones, Deborah Lynch, and Gene Williams.

I would like to inform you of the changes for 2020:
– Lay Director Keith Ellis
– Assistant Lay Director Sadie Hawthorne
– Community Spiritual Director The Rev. Paul Beighley
– New Board Members Michele Drinkard, Sadie Hawthorne, Tony Huddleston, The Rev. Lewis Newbill
– Treasurer Jason Kincaid (non-Board Member)
– Men’s Walk #111 March 26-29 Lay Director Al Clary, Spiritual Director The Rev. Carl Bagley
– Women’s Walk #112 April 30-May 3 Lay Director Petra Wicker, Spiritual Director The Rev. Jerry Wicker

The next Emmaus gathering is on Saturday, February 15th at 6pm at Crenshaw UMC in Blackstone. Please bring a delicious covered dish to share, and as always, bring an Emmaus Friend.

De Colores!
