Happy June! I hope this finds you well and in good spirits.
Great things are happening in our Emmaus community! We have started to hold our monthly Gatherings in-person again. Can I get an AMEN? We came together as the Body of Christ on May 15, 2021 at Bon Air UMC for a beautiful outside Gathering. Our new Community Lay Director, Clyde Lessard, gave the Community his vision for moving forward in 2021. Clyde needs everyone in the Community to come together so we can get Richmond Emmaus moving at “full speed” once again. The Men’s Walk is scheduled for September 23-26, 2021 and we could not be more excited. In order to have this weekend, we need Pilgrims. Please think of someone you can sponsor and get their application in ASAP.
Our next Gathering is scheduled for June 12, 2021 at Bon Air United Methodist Church starting at 6:00 p.m. Due to COVID shutdowns, the Pilgrims of Richmond #134 were never introduced at the March, 2020 Gathering. Now that we have started meeting again in person, it’s time to meet the newest members of our Community. Please make every effort to attend this Gathering so that you can give them a warm welcome.
The Board of Directors desires your input regarding new Board members. A term of service is three years and a new term begins January 1, 2022. There are four slots to be filled for the 2022 term. Please contact Cody Dedmon or Bob Moseley if you, or someone you know, would like to be considered to become part of the Board of Directors.
Be on the lookout for additional information from your Community Lay Director regarding the June Gathering and the fall weekend. Please begin praying and thanking God for the Pilgrims He is bringing for the fall weekend.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
