Making A Difference

As time passes and we get ready for the upcoming walk in June let’s talk about “making a difference.”

Matthew 5:16

Let your light shine before people, so they can see the good things you do and praise your Father who is in heaven.

Thought For The Day

I can’t do everything to serve God, but no matter how small I can make a difference by doing something.

Just a reminder this Thursday will be the monthly Gathering at 6:30 at Stone River Church. Come fellowship and learn more about the history and structure of Emmaus and how it strengthens our local church.
Childcare will be provided by Stone River Church.
Also, please bring a dish to share.

What Can I Do?

Have you ever stopped to wonder “what can I do” to serve God? As we go about our busy days I am sure you have wondered about how you can serve? How can I make a difference?

Read: Matthew 5:13-16

Let your light shine before people, so they can see the good things you do and praise your Father who is in heaven.


Keep this thought for the day:

I can’t do everything to serve God, but I can always do something to give him glory.

The NLE board will host a training event Saturday for all persons interested in serving on future walks. If are a recent pilgrim that would like to get involved or one who has served in the past and would like to do more, we encourage you to come and learn together.

This Saturday, January 26 8:30 am. Continental breakfast will be served and we should be through no later than 10:30.
We will meet at the Church at Stone River in Decatur.

Hope to see you then!
