 NKY Emmaus Community Newsletter 

Fall is here!! Wow, time is flying by. The great thing about October is that we have a Women’s Walk after 3 years where we will get to see our Father change lives, set captives free, save the lost, guide the seeking, and show all how great His love is. I hope you will come be a part of this awesome weekend. There are many ways you can be involved. You will find those ways here in this newsletter. Come and see what God is going to do!!

Community Lay Director 

De Colores! 

Women’s Walk #48 is October 20-23 2022 and the application deadline is October 6 th.  Only 5 days so please mail those applications in or contact a board member. 

The pilgrim count is 7. Please don’t wait until the last day to invite your pilgrim you want to make sure they can arrange to schedule that weekend off. 

You, the sponsor, are the utmost importance to GOD, your pilgrim, the team, and the Emmaus community. Committing to be a sponsor is so much more than “signing people up.” It is the first act of GOD’s unconditional love (AGAPE) to the pilgrim and it starts even before their Walk begins. Good sponsorship is the mortar GOD uses as He sets His building blocks of love, relationships, service, discipleship, perseverance, and grace in a pilgrim’s life. Jesus is the Foundation, GOD is the builder, and it is through you, the sponsor, and the Team that GOD’s love builds a pilgrim’s life to servanthood of Him. A Pilgrim is Royalty A pilgrim is treated like Royalty and this treatment should start, by you, the sponsor even before the Walk begins.  

Welcome to our newest board member: Jennifer Meyers- Agape Chairperson. 

Agape is an important part of every walk get a group together or by yourself we need 60-70 pieces per item. 

The pray chat still needs to be filled so please go to the nkemmaus.com web site then click prayer, then women’s walk, then select your days and time. 

We will need your help for the women’s Saturday night meal, community members will be needed to help prep and cook this special meal. More details will be coming after October 6th. 

We still have a few open board positions: Music Chair (someone to organize musical talent for gatherings), Assistant Community Lay Director, Team Selection Chair, Outreach Chair, and Fourth Day Chair. 

We are also looking for 4th day speakers for upcoming gatherings if Holy Spirit is leading you to share your Fourth day message please let us know.

The walk is a unique experience, carefully planned to provide for the support and growth of the pilgrim thru the silent servant hood of the team involved. If you haven’t talked with your pastor yet about who in your church is ready for this men’s walk call them and if they haven’t been on a Emmaus walk yet invite them.

Blessings all, February is behind us and just like that we are two months into 2022. Time seems to be passing so quickly, after two long years postponing Men’s Walk #48 John Poe and the team have started training for the walk. We are only 51 days away from Men’s walk #48 and the application deadline is April 7th. I am so excited to see what God has in store for us as a community.  “God is working”, do you believe it? I was recently challenged with this thought. My initial answer was yeah; but this one simple truth has just continued to minister to me. I have just marveled at the complexity of it. Do we as followers of Christ really believe that God is working? Do we trust that the creator of the universe is GOD of the universe and He is in control? Do we really believe that he “works all things together for the good of those that believe Him and are called to His purpose? Do we acknowledge how big and good He is, and rest and trust that He alone is God and that HE is working and that he loves us? My job, our job, is to “take His yoke upon us and rest”. Cast all your concerns upon Him and trust that He is working. Please continue to be in prayer over our Community as we move forward with holding Walks, and specifically be in prayer for the upcoming walks of 2022. Get excited for the work that God is doing. Your brother in Christ, Greg Beagle Northern Kentucky Emmaus Community Lay Director 
Spiritual Director corner We will need the Emmaus community to come together to support this Men’s walk by sponsoring pilgrims we need to be talking with our pastors and discuss who is ready. We cannot hold a walk without the pilgrims. We need to completely fill this Men’s walk with pilgrims as it has been over two years since the last walk. There are so many new opportunities to ask a fellow church member to come and experience the Love and Joy that Jesus has to offer. Remember your own joy and love you experienced on your Emmaus walk. This is the time to pass it on to your fellow Christian brother!  De Colores, Geoff Egbers  Chrysalis corner Charlene Burlew is leading the NKY Chrysalis restart. They are currently looking for anyone (adult or teen) who might be qualified and interested in working with Chrysalis. If you have attended the Walk to Emmaus or a Chrysalis Flight (ages 15-18) you are qualified to serve. If interested, contact: Charlene at burlewc@yahoo.com Sponsorship Corner  As Spring is upon us, we need to really start praying about our upcoming walks! We need to ask God whom do you want me to sponsor on these walks? If you do not want me to sponsor someone, then what can I do to help? If you pray, God will answer! We all have been the recipients of God’s answered prayers! If God is leading you to sponsor and you feel money is as problem (the cost this year is $140.00), please remember we have a scholarship fund for anyone who needs financial help. So do not let money deter you from passing this gift on to someone else! Pray, Pray, and Pray some more! Please prayerfully considering sponsoring someone on these walks and remember this community stands behind you and will help you however they can. All you have to do is ask. If you do sponsor,(sponsorship forms can be found by going to nkemmaus.com and clicking the sponsorship page) prepare yourself for the many blessings that will come to you as a result of answering God’s call! The blessings are Awesome! Remember Pray, Pray, Pray, and Pray some more! Is God calling you?  De Colores! Vern McKinley
