December 9th, Emmaus Gathering at Toms Brook UMC, Toms Brook, VA 10:00 to Noon Christmas Celebration What a Reunion Group Can Do for You! Meet the Spring Lay Directors Continuing the Celebration of 25 years of ministry. Parade of Walk Photos
Advent is a time of preparation. We are preparing our hearts to make a better home for Christ who comes to dwell among us and through His Spirit within us! Isaiah puts it as making straight a path in the dessert. Isaiah 40:3-11 Get ready! He's coming and especially for you, and you, and you! We get our houses ready with lights and decorations but how do we get our hearts ready? Our Gathering this Saturday should help a lot! There will be Christmas carols, a testimony from a reunion group on how they have traveled through their 4th Days together, helping each other to make straight the path. And following them you will have a chance to try out a small reunion group yourself! In your Advent/Christmas celebrations do you invite family and friends to come over, or vice/versa? You have a personal invitation to come to Jesus' table and partake in His memory the bread of life and the cup of salvation! It is His gift of Grace to you and help in making straight the path to life in Him through the wilderness you may journey. And... there will be one last parade of 100 Walks through photos to celebrate our 25 years as Shenandoah Valley Emmaus!
