Summer greetings to all Mid Ohio
Valley Emmaus members:
For most of us the summer months move by too quickly. It is
my hope and prayer that all of you are spending some quality time with
your families. Your Emmaus Board will have a working Board
meeting hosted at the home of Chad and Angie Yoho this month.
We will be finalizing plans for the fall walks and also taking a look
at some longer term plans for our community. Our community is
financially stable at this point and it is the obligation of this Board
and future Boards to keep it that way.
Now is the time to pray about and talk
with perspective pilgrims for the fall and even the spring
walks. We can now accept 25 pilgrims on each walk which is 5
tables of 5. The Emmaus experience has changed so many lives and
impacted so many families. Please consider and pray about who
you want to sponsor and then sit down with an intentional plan and make
it happen. The continual flow of pilgrims is the only way the
Emmaus community thrives and prospers.
Next month we will share with you the team members and speakers so you
can begin to pray for them. Right now I would simply ask that
all of you pray for team formation, existing pilgrims, and for the
pilgrims that do not yet know they will be attending.
May God Bless you and keep you safe in
your travels as you enjoy the grace of summer.
Though we do not have a Gathering in
July, please mark your calendar now for you August Gathering! We will
meet Tuesday, August 26th, 7 pm, at Mt. Pleasant UMC, 62 Turkey Foot Rd,

Our Gatherings always include

God's Word, and Emmaus-style communion. Everyone is welcome, regardless
of completion of an Emmaus weekend. We do ask that you remember your

You can mark your calendar in advance
for September's Gathering, Sept. 23rd at St. Luke's UMC in Harrisville, WV.
See you in August!

wants to use you to pass His love on to another. What better way to
pass on that love than through sponsoring that someone on a Walk to
Emmaus this fall? When contemplating sponsorship, pray and ask God
direction. Keep your eyes open for someone that is yearning for a
deeper faith and shows potential in Christian leadership. When God has
shown you whom to sponsor, follow these steps:
the Walk to Emmaus with
your fiend, answering any questions.
your intended pilgrim a registration form. Follow up, but
never force someone to attend the Walk to Emmaus.
