R-129 is being formed!

God is so good, and He has brought us to a new location for fall 2018! A team for Richmond Men’s Walk 129 (October 11-14) is being formed, and YOU are needed! More information will be shared as we approach the weekend, but please consider prayerfully being a part of this weekend, either on the Inside or Outside Teams. (Men with all experience levels are needed for the Inside Team, and both men and women will be needed to serve on the Outside Team).

Experience required: You need to have attended 4th Day Training and be willing to serve where needed, with an open heart!

We prefer teaming applications be submitted online … but if necessary, you may print out an application and mail it to the address on the form. Applications may be found at www.richmondemmaus.com. Teaming applications beyond the number needed to fill the R-129 Team will be held for future walks.

Gratefully,
Team Selection Committee

Bon Air #3 Epiphany Wants You!

​Wow — so happy to welcome Emmaus R127 and R128 to the Emmaus family!  Candlelight and Closing were amazing!
Are you wondering what God is calling you to next? Pray about teaming on an Epiphany weekend.  It is similar to an Emmaus weekend, but done at Bon Air Juvenile Correction.  Our next Epiphany is Memorial Day weekend.  We get to share Jesus’ love with the young men and women there. Teaming will be at Fair Havens Church (8200 Belmont Rd, Chesterfield, VA 23832-7401) at 6 pm on the following Fridays: April 20 (no teaming April 27), May 4, 11,and 18. Commissioning is May 24, Bon Air setup is May 25, Bon Air #3 weekend is May 26-28th.

For people brand-new to Epiphany or who would like a quick refresher on the basics, we will meet April 13 at 6pm at my house (see address below).

Pray hard to see if God is calling you to team. Spread the word to anyone who might be interested. If you know anyone that would like to team for the first time, a criminal background check is also attached (if you were background-checked for Beaumont, you should be good for Bon Air). Anyone who is curious about Epiphany can come to Star Reunions (gatherings) twice before the background check is completed (Reunions are the third Thursday and fourth Friday of every month). 

Teaming applications are due April 6. Just fill out the team application and email it to pamela_hall@ccpsnet.net, or mail to: Pam Hall, 6418 Harbourside Drive, Midlothian, VA 23112. If you need the background check, you must get that done as soon as possible.  If you have any questions, feel free to call or email me 804-317-0042.

I am so excited to see what God has in store for our teaming and the weekend!

A Spiritual Gifts Workshop is coming to Richmond Emmaus!

Dear Emmaus friends, 
 
We were repeatedly encouraged to discover our spiritual gifts while we attended the Walk to Emmaus. The Christian Action, Sanctifying Grace and Body of Christ talks helped us understand that everyone who has made the decision to follow Jesus is equipped by the Holy Spirit with spiritual gifts, given to us to do ministry. Serving God in ways that are in alignment with our spiritual gifts helps us fulfill God’s call on our lives and can help guide us into living a more abundant life.  
 
Come discover your unique, God-given spiritual gifts at a Spiritual Gifts workshop on Saturday, April 21st from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. at Bethia UMC (room TBA). It is free to attend, but seating is limited. Register online for this session at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4daea723a4fc1-spiritual2, or contact me at (mobile) 814-5381 or simplyabbey@gmail.com.

A suggestion from ‘Hoop’ re: Praying for Walks

I have the following request that will be of great help when praying for each of the walks. Please put the following Prayer Lists on the website:

Team Prayer List – to include NAME – TEAMING POSITION – TALKS
Pilgrim Prayer List – to include NAME – CHURCH – SPONSORS

This would be a great help while praying for the Walks, and for individuals involved by name.

Thanks and Many Blessings for Emmaus,
Hoop

To which the Webmaster humbly says, “Amen.”  Head Servants / AWLDs, I will gladly post this information for your Walks as quickly as I can get it.
