Dear New Life Emmaus Community,
It seems that all we hear in the news today is negative. But we are “good news” people! God has not left us to our own devices. Jesus is still saving and redeeming, and the Holy Spirit is still moving among His people. Praise God!
We have not been standing still! The board is still meeting regularly via Zoom and looking for ways to keep moving forward. Here are some things we’ve been working on.
Walks: Because of health concerns and the retreat center closure(temporarily) the men’s walk has been rescheduled. We plan to move forward with the 2021 schedule (if possible). The Women’s walk will be March 4-7, 2021. The Men’s walk will be Sept 30-Oct 3, 2021.
Gatherings: We don’t want to ever forsake our gathering together. We hope that in the fall we can get together beginning with an outdoor event. We will continue to watch for the demise of this virus!
Online training: We’ve discussed having training for conference room positions, as well as silent servant areas. Please send me a text or email if this is something you would be interested in! (Andrewspra@bellsouth.net)
NLE T-shirts: We are looking into the possibility of having community shirts made as a fundraiser. We continue to have expenses (storage, insurance, webpage) and without gatherings, we aren’t collecting any offerings. T shirts would be a fun way to generate some revenue! More info coming soon.
Please let us continue to lift one another up as we wait patiently for the end of this pandemic. If you have a Fourth Day story to share, either share on our Facebook page, or send it to me and I will share it there or on our NLE webpage.
May God bless and keep each of you safe!
Love in Christ,
New Life Emmaus Community Lay Director
