Upcoming Walk Reminders

What a great opportunity we have before us. This time next week the Women’s Walk 18-138 will be in full swing. There are many things we can do, but there are a few things that we as a community and sponsors must do.  To follow are a few of those items and these are either listed on the sponsor form, or it may be a concern or suggestion that comes from the NET Board of Directions.

  1. Sponsors, please do not have your Pilgrim arrive at registration before 6:15 PM. The registration team will not be ready until that time, as they are also members of the team and will be involved in team preparation until that time.
  2. Sponsors, please remember what is written on your sponsor application: 10-12 letters to be given to your pilgrim on Sunday afternoon. Any more than that can be given on the way home, or they might even be a great 4th gift on Monday when they get home.  You are responsible for getting these cards/letters/notes of encouragement from their family and friends.
  3. For the Community: no photos or videos as long as the Pilgrims are present. We must respect each Pilgrim’s privacy.
  4. When attending send-off on Thursday, please bring enough for those in your group. Sometimes we run low on food, and enough for your group should ensure plenty for everyone in attendance.
A Reminder: there will be a book table on Saturday of the walk. The gift shop at the dining hall will also be open during certain times. The Pilgrims will be allowed to shop at both areas, but neither accept credit cards, CASH or CHECKS only.

Lay Director and Servant Team Coordinator Training

The NET Emmaus Board of Directors is required by Upper Room to make sure these training sessions are available for those in the queue for Lay Director, or those who are considering becoming LD in the future. This training is also set up for those wanting to know more about being Servant Team Coordinators.

The Meeting will be Saturday, April 28 at FUMC, Sulphur Springs, from 9:00-Noon. LD training will begin promptly at 9:00 AM, so please make plans to be there on time. STC training will follow.

The LD training is set up to inform, update and assist our LD's the best way we know possible. Changes may occur at anytime during the year; please use this opportunity to be prepared!  Remember, that Lay Director are appointed by the Board. Names of potential LD's are given to the board for consideration.

If you are interested in being a Servant Team Coordinator, please let some one on the board know, and plan to attend this training. AND, you must have served as a Lay Director before you can serve as STC.

We realized this training is the Saturday after the Women's Spring Walk, but we are trying to get it done before summer vacations, ballgames, etc.

Community Newsletter

The latest edition of the NET Emmaus Community newsletter is available.  If you know of any Emmaus members/Chrysalis member who would like to have the newsletter, but may not have received it, please have them email:  netemmaus001@gmail.com.

From the Lay Director
