News from Our Community Lay DirectorDaniel Jones Walk to Emmaus #15 Table of Mark
The bright challenges of this new year are fully upon us. As Christian disciples, our work is all around us in every direction. The Global Mission of the Upper Room’s Emmaus Ministry is: Renewing Christian Disciples, Strengthening Local Churches. Our Crossroads Community truly is ‘the hands and feet of Jesus’ in this work.
Your Board gathered in mid-January to prioritize our 2020 Crossroads undertakings; to specifically focus our Community’s energies toward renewing Christian disciples and strengthening our local New England congregations. You’ll soon begin to see new initiatives.
Our theme for 2020: We’re building!
The Board’s two highest priorities are:
1) continuing to improve our communications with each other across all of New England as we work hand in hand, congregation to congregation
2) improving training opportunities, especially for Walk Teams and Sponsors. There is much room for improvement.
We’ll be using Facebook more often to communicate with you so please join our private Crossroads Emmaus group today!
Together we are building a better, stronger, and more active Crossroads Emmaus Community. I’ll keep you apprised of improvements and also of ways for you to be an active part of our Crossroads discipleship. Together, we’re building a better tomorrow for Jesus.
If you have questions, ideas, or comments don’t hesitate to email me:
May God bless you in all that you do.
The sole purpose of the Emmaus movement is to strengthen disciples within the ministry of individual congregations. Emmaus is in partnership with the local church.
We now have a wonderful, well produced video explaining The Walk to Emmaus:
Community Spring Gathering
Please mark your calendars: April 17–19 for our Emmaus Community Spring Retreat at Alton Bay. We will gather as a Community to worship, sing, laugh, learn and fellowship with one another. Bringing the Walk to Emmaus to Christians across all of New England requires all of us working together. Please join us in April. I promise, you will be refreshed and strengthened.
A quick reminder: until further notice we will only hold Fall Walks.
