September Emmaus Gathering at Asbury UMC, Harrisonburg, 10:00 to Noon
Continuing the Celebration of 25 years of ministry. Why you should be present this Saturday at Asbury UMC ... 1. We all know the Walk to Emmaus can be transforming! God calls us to different tasks and often uses the Walk to Emmaus to be His phone connection. Following some great fellowship and praise music, you will meet two who heard God calling through their Emmaus experience, said here am I send me, and are now serving God and us as clergy. 2. Express your appreciation to the men's team who were preparing to serve this October but were faced with a canceled walk due to low sponsoring of pilgrims. They are certainly disappointed but with a little encouragement will be ready to take up the torch sometime again. 3. This is the last opportunity to make your own Emmaus Name Badge with the 25th Anniversary commemorative seal. It only takes a few moments and can be done during the fellowship time starting at 10:00 am. 4. Keep in touch with friends, plan to meet for lunch with one of your old table groups after the Gathering.
