Women’s Walk - April 25 - 28

Asbury Theological Seminary & Asbury Inn

We currently have 21 Men and 27 Women attending the upcoming Walks. Registration for both walks is now closed.

The LEC Board extends a hearty “thank you” to the community for your response in sponsoring pilgrims. We can’t wait to see what God will do on these walks. It is a blessing to see the Body of Christ in action.

From the Community Lay Director...   Spring is in the air…and that means that the Walks are right around the corner! These Walks are truly a team effort. I am reminded of the passages in Exodus 17:8-13 where Moses had to continue to lift the rod in the air in order for the Israelites to win in the battle against the Amalekites. In order to win the battle, Moses had to be seated on a firm foundation, or “the rock”. He also had to have Aaron on one side and Hur on the other supporting his arms; otherwise his arms got tired and Joshua and the Israelites would start losing the battle. Our Lay Directors for these walks are seated on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ. They have terrific team members willing to fight like Joshua on the battlefield. They just need one more thing to make these walks successful…they need arm support. They need community support. Please sign up to bring snack agape, make some agape, sign the prayer chart and attend the community events. I look forward to seeing you there!  De Colores!  Susan Bryant  Community Lay Director
