For the first time in eight years our East Texas Emmaus Community will be hold a set of Chrysalis Flights. (Yea!) So let’s step up as a community and support them with prayers and presence. These flights will be held this weekend January 16-19. That’s Friday through Monday . . . which means that the Candlelight will be SUNDAY night at 8:00p at Camp Cullen near Trinity TX. This list of Flights 20 & 21 is all on one 4-page PDF, so don’t just look at the top page.
See you at Candlelight!
You will find the latest revised Pilgrim and also Team applications under the Applications link (under the header). The revisions include the release required by Frontier Camp, the location for our February Men’s (Feb 12-15) & Women’s (Feb 19-22) Walks.
Important Reminder: Don’t overlook the upcoming Chrysalis Flights, January 16 (Friday) thru Monday Jan 19. This is MLK weekend. This set of flights will be for both boys & girls on the same weekend and will be held at Camp Cullen, the great camp where Women’s #105 was held. It is absolutely essential that we get behind these flights, since this will be the first Chrysalis events we have held in eight years. The lay directors are ready, the teams are in training . . . all we need are the kids from your church who are 9th grade – first year college.
