RING THOSE BELLS . . .
IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME –
AND BACK TO EMMAUS WEEKENDS TIME!!!
This is such an exciting time for our Richmond Emmaus community as we have two Walks planned this fall. Rob Heare will be leading the men of R-135 September 29th – October 2nd and Rachel Pack will be leading the women of R-136 October 6th – October 9th. Please come and show your support at our September 10th Gathering as both teams will be introduced.
PLEASE NOTE: THE OCTOBER GATHERING WILL BE HELD AT THE NAZARENE CAMP ON OCTOBER 8 — PRIOR TO CANDLELIGHT.
SO – WHAT DO WE NEED FOR THE WEEKENDS?
AGAPE. This is needed in the dining room and for pillow agape. You can either make agape or purchase it. A good source to purchase large quantities is Oriental Trading Company. If able, please provide 22 individual pieces of agape for one or both teams. You may write the name of your reunion group or church on each item, but please DO NOT put your name.
PRAYER. Please sign up for the Prayer Wheel on richmondemmaus.com or on our Facebook page. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE sign up to pray for these two weekends. You can have more than one slot to pray.
COMMUNITY MEMBERS. We need good attendance at the upcoming Weekend events. Please try to attend Candlelight for both teams if possible. The pilgrims and team would love to see your SHINING faces with the love of Jesus. It would be nice to see you at the Closing(s) also.
Outreach Service Project. Thank you for your support of the “Into the Neighborhood” project. If you took a laundry basket to be filled up with items for the “Into the Neighborhood” project – please bring them to the September Gathering. Thank you Cherie Miller for bringing this to our attention.
Ice Cream Sundaes. We had a great time after our August Gathering making ice cream sundaes. A big thank you to Jessica Hood-Dedmon who delivered the ice cream and toppings to Bon Air UMC in addition to serving. It was yummy!
Fourth Day Training. November 12th, 4:30 p.m. at Bon Air United Methodist Church. Sponsors, let’s get our new Community members at Fourth Day Training and then remain for Gathering.
November Gathering. November 12th, 6:00 p.m. at Bon Air United Methodist Church. Our new Community members will be introduced.
Nominations for the Emmaus Board. We will be voting on the new slate of the Board of Directors for 2023 (for three years) at our November Gathering.
As we remember the recent passing of our brother and friend, Bob Davis, I am sure he heard the words . . . “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.” — Matthew 25:21. A Celebration of Life for Bob Davis was held on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at Monument Heights Baptist church. Please keep Kaye Davis and her family in your prayers during this difficult time.
Hope to see you at one of the
upcoming Emmaus events.
In the meantime,
Keep on being the light!
You are the light of the world.
Let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good deeds and
praise your Father in heaven.
