Experience a mini-Emmaus day, complete with talks, discussions, posters, music, agape, communion, and yes, joke time! Come and Sing Hallelujah to the Lord! Renew your first love for Christ from your Emmaus walk. The retreat will be held at a familiar place, Wilmore UMC, on Saturday, April 28th from 9:00 to 3:00.
There is no registration fee, but we ask that you register so we can adequately prepare.
Childcare will be arranged if needed. If you are bringing children, we ask that you register no later than April 21.
It has been suggested by several individuals that the Lexington Emmaus Community participate in charitable activities as a Community outside of just Gatherings and Walks. The Lexington Emmaus Community Board of Directors has discussed this suggestion and decided that it was a good one. Opportunities for the Community to serve together will be presented by the Board of Directors at intervals over the course of the year.
The first opportunity to be presented is the American Cancer Society Relay for Life fundraiser. Relay for Life is on Saturday, June 2, 2018, 4-11 PM at Transylvania’s Athletic Complex. Food trucks are to be at the event.
The team – Lexington Emmaus Community – has been established on the Relay for Life website. Link to sign up for Relay for Life is www.relayforlife.org/fayetteky
At the March Gathering, Alan Jackson shared a song that he suggested we should consider as our community theme song as we seek to return to our first love. The title of the song is "Oh Lord, You're Beautiful". Click to hear a YouTube.
