OCTOBER GATHERING:

October 9, 2021, 6:00 p.m., Bon Air United Methodist Church

Hello Emmaus Community,

Are you ready to come and relight your flame at our October Gathering?  Gatherings are an enjoyable way to stay connected and if you haven’t been to a Gathering in a while, you are missing out.  We believe that God is moving within the Richmond Emmaus community.  

Although we have had to postpone the 2021 Walks, now is a time to be recruiting, planting seeds, and sponsoring for next year’s pilgrims. Talk to your friends at church, at school/jobs and your families about sponsoring someone for our 2022 Walks.  We can also use this time to make agape and do other things needed to have successful Walks in 2022.

The Richmond Emmaus Board is using this time to review and amend our Bylaws, prepare an Operating Manual, revamp our website, change email systems and participate in training sessions. The Board is committed in following the Covenant that we sign with the Upper Room annually, which means following the model and manuals that we are instructed to obey.  We are striving to have the best Emmaus community possible and we need YOU to help make that possible!

We hope to see you at the Gathering this Saturday, October 9, 2021 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at Bon Air United Methodist Church located at 1645 Buford Road, NorthChesterfield.  

Note:  We will be meeting in the newly renovated gym so please make sure that you use a folding chair that has a rubber foot on it. We don’t want to leave marks on the gym floor. Also, we are unable to have food or beverages at this time.  We will let you know if this changes for future Gatherings.  

De Colores,

Sandy Livingston
