Hello Garden State Emmaus Community!
I invite you to take a moment to think back to the weekend you spent on your Walk to Emmaus. What did you feel when you arrived? And now, how did you feel when the weekend was over? Did you feel that you had met Christ along the road? The community that is the Walk to Emmaus, in the Garden State and worldwide, made that possible.
We, as community members, have the privilege of bringing the weekend experience to others. Walks are soon approaching! We have the opportunity to share the incredible love of our Savior through sponsorship, weekend service, and acts of agape. How sad it would be to miss this opportunity!
Now is the time to prayerfully consider sponsoring pilgrims for the upcoming walks. Pilgrim applications and sponsorship forms are available at www.gardenstateemmaus.org. Mail completed forms to Diane VanShenk Brill at PO Box 944, Newfield, NJ 08344.
There is also URGENT NEED for men to serve in kitchen and agape. If you are available and willing to serve for the entire weekend or any portion of it, please contact Diane Goss at email@example.com as soon as possible.
The Fall 2016 Walks are being held in South Seaville:
Team training September 9-11.
Men’s weekend is September 22-25.
Women’s weekend October 6-9.
Please pray for the pilgrims and teams as Christ works through all.
The pilgrim registration form, sponsorship form and the sponsorship guidelines are available at the following link: http://www.gardenstateemmaus.com/forms/
Our community needs your HELP!
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR WALK #43
De Colores to all!

This can be a time to rekindle friendships, see what the community has planned for 2015, meet our new Community Lay Director, share ideas and partake in communion with the community.
Bring a friend or two. Share the love of Christ with your friend. You need not have been on a Walk to attend a gathering.
