Another weekend will start in a few hours and we will all be free to engage in those wonderful weekend activities we love. Take a minute to remember the people on the east coast in the “eye of the storm.” Say a prayer for them….
Come learn all the details about sponsorship at our next community gathering on Thursday, September 20, 6:30 pm. Bring a covered dish to share at the Church at Stone River in Decatur. This is an opportunity to learn what’s needed before, during and after a walk to sponsor a pilgrim. We will also discuss any available servant opportunities for the women’s walk, celebrate communion and pray for the pilgrims and team of the upcoming women’s walk.
Yes, each day the Lord gives us is an opportunity. With the beginning of a long weekend let’s make this pledge: I will discover something new in God’s word and his world today.
As this late August day begins a day that has the hint of fall, this question comes to mind. How faithful is our God? The answer is we have been promised his compassion never fails and is new everyday. With this thought please have a blessed day and weekend.
Our August Gathering is coming up soon next Thursday, August 16th. Make sure that you mark it on your calendar for a night of food, fellowship, and worship. Join us at 6:30 pm in Decatur, AL at the Church at Stone River located at: 3014 Danville Rd SW, Decatur, AL 35603

James 2:17 (NIV) Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
Think about it how will you and I demonstrate God’s grace through loving actions today?
Do you have a pilgrim you want to sponsor for the women’s walk? Many applications have already been received and space is limited, so get applications in as soon as possible. Applications need to be completed by the pilgrim, sponsor and pastor and a check for the $30 application fee. If you are unsure about sponsorship responsibilities, contact any NLE board member.
Don’t forget this week is the Emmaus board meeting. Thursday at 6:30 at the Olive Garden in Decatur. Hope all board members can make it as we prepare for the upcoming women’s walk this fall.
