Meal Agape for R-127 and R-128 teams!

I’d like to thanks those who have already provided meals for the current teams and those who’ve already signed up to provide them in the coming weeks. After having sign-up available at Gathering Saturday night, we still have some dates available to provide team meal agape and would appreciate any help you can give!
Dates available:

Men dinner (Friday evenings): Jan 26, Feb 9, Feb 16, March 2
Women (Saturday mornings): Jan 27, Feb 3, March 10 (and lunch on March 15)

The details once again:

R-127 men are teaming on Friday nights at Parham Road Baptist Church (in the West End). There are 35 men and drop-off is between 5:45 and 6:15 pm.

R-128 women are teaming on Saturday mornings at Ivey Memorial UMC (in Chester). There are 25 women and drop-off is between 8:00 and 8:20am.

How can you help? Sign up on one of the attached links (providing your name and email). The open dates are shaded YELLOW … either grab a friend or 2 (or more) to help (and add their names) or sign up yourself and others can join to help. This is a great opportunity for your reunion group or your table to help in a different way! Provide and deliver a meal for around 25 of anything you wish: homemade, store-bought, crockpot, fast food, whatever! The one thing I ask is that everything (or as much as possible) be in disposable containers to minimize cleanup for the team.

You can sign up by using the links below, or by emailing me at carole.mitchell.1818@gmail.com.

The link to the men’s team sign-up can be found by clicking here.

The link to the women’s team sign-up can be found by clicking here.

If you’d like to provide funds to help purchase a meal for a night, please let me know. That would certainly be welcomed, and I can arrange to have the food purchased and delivered.

Questions? Just let me know! I’m really hoping to have the rest of the meals covered for each team. Won’t you help, please??

Reunion Table Updates Needed!

I’ve learned that a new Reunion Table has formed in Mechanicsville — that is great, but I’ve also learned that at least one group shown on the website no longer exists. Our list needs to be updated!

TABLE LEADERS:  Please contact me at rickr44318@gmail.com if —
(1) you are leading a Reunion Table — I need the venue (name and address), the day and time you meet, and a contact name / email / phone number;
(2) a Table you led in the past no longer meets and should be removed from the list.

Thank you in advance for your help!

De Colores,

Spiritual Gifts Workshops are 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! You are invited to attend either of two upcoming Spiritual Gifts workshops. Both will be identical in content, so you only need to register for one. They are free to attend, but seating is limited.
 
The first workshop will be held on Sunday, January 21st from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. at Bethia UMC, Room 10.  Register online for this session at  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0E4DAEA723A4FC1-spiritual1, or by contacting me at (mobile) 814-5381 or simplyabbey@gmail.com  
 
The second will be held Saturday, April 21st from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. at Bethia UMC, room TBA. Register online for this session at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4daea723a4fc1-spiritual2, or contact me by phone or email.

Agape Opportunities for Spring Walks!

Merry Christmas, Emmaus and Chrysalis Friends! Thanks for reading this long email during this busy time!

There’s a new way you can help our wonderful community: providing meal agape for our upcoming teams. With everything each team member has to do to prepare for a weekend, providing food during teaming can be difficult. Here’s where YOU come in!

As you know, we have 2 teams who start teaming just after the first of the year for the walks being held on March 15-18. Here’s your chance to provide agape to these teams!

R-127 — the Men’s walk will be teaming for 10 Friday nights starting Jan. 5 at Parham Road Baptist Church (West End).

R-128 — the Women’s walk will be teaming for 10 Saturday mornings starting Jan. 6 at Ivey Memorial UMC (Chester).

How can you help?

  • Sign up on one of the attached links (providing your name and email) … either grab a friend or 2 (or more) to help (and add their names) or, sign up yourself and others can join to help. This is a great opportunity for your reunion group or your table to help in a different way!
  • Provide and deliver a meal for around 25 of anything you wish … homemade, store-bought, crockpot, fast food — whatever! The one thing I ask is that everything (or as much as possible) be in disposable containers to minimize cleanup for the team. Someone would need to drop the food at the respective church around 5:30pm for the men’s team and 8:00am for the women’s team.
  • There is also the opportunity to provide lunch for a team on Thursday, March 15 at each church around 11-ish before they go to the ILC. You can sign up by using the links below.
  • If you are unable to provide a meal, there’s another way you can help — by providing plates, napkins, Reynolds wrap, flatware, etc. (or donating money for their purchase). If you can do that, please sign up on the link(s) provided and make sure I have your email to arrange pick up if needed!

The link to the men’s team sign up can be found by clicking here
The link to the women’s team sign up can be found by clicking here.

Questions? Just let me know! I’m hoping to have each meal covered for each team. Won’t you help???? Please!!!

Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

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.
