For more information, call 970-275-3130.
PLEASE LET THE EMMAUS MEMBERS OF YOUR CHURCH KNOW ABOUT THIS.
NOT EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE ON THE LIST.
IF POSSIBLE, BRING AN UPDATED LIST OF YOUR CHURCH'S EMMAUS MEMBERS.
Next Board Meeting will be Saturday, September 28 at 10:00am at Redlands United Methodist Church
It is time for nominations to our Emmaus Board. If you have served on the Walks in both support and the conference room, please prayerfully consider serving on the Board. WRE needs YOU! If you have been contacted by one of the Board members about serving on the Board, please give it prayerful consideration. Please contact any of the Board members if you are willing to serve.
Our first training to prepare for the 2020 walks will be on January 18 in Montrose, February 15 in Grand Junction, and March 14 in Carbondale. It is imperative to come to every training to fully prepare us for serving. It's a time for the men's and women's teams to gather for training, fellowship, worship, and refreshments, with veterans and newbies alike, joyfully gathering with the attitude of serving as Christ's hands and feet. It's truly an exciting time to do so.

Are YOU involved in a reunion group? The Walk to Emmaus is a 4th day movement. Stay connected with others by being active in a reunion group. Don’t have one? Call someone in the Emmaus community or start one yourself.
Community potlucks are another way to stay connected and meet new people in WRE. Check with your community to see when and where potlucks are held.
Please pray for the 2020 Walks. Pray for Emmaus throughout the world, your WRE, the Board, the leaders, the conference room and support teams. Pray for people you are considering sponsoring as pilgrims. If you need help about sponsorship, contact any of the WRE board members. Will YOU serve on a Walk? Sponsor someone? Serve on the Board? Make agape? These and many other tasks are fulfilling Christ's call to discipleship, serving as His hands and feet.
Giving up a latte a week per year = $175, the cost of participating on a Walk. Have your reunion group and/or local gathering set out an envelope for donations. Scholarships help pilgrims and team members participate. No one should be turned away because of financial constraints.
Men's Walk March 26-29, 2020 Women's Walk April 2-5, 2020
