Our next gathering will be held January 23, 2016 at Lufkin’s First United Methodist Church. It will be a covered dish dinner, so bring that new recipe that you have been wanting to try, or one of your old favorites to enjoy. Sponsorship training will be at 4PM followed by the gathering at 5PM. We will share a meal, fellowship and music, followed by a 4th day speaker and worship service. Hope to see you there!
Our new members of the East Texas Emmaus Board will be inducted at a board meeting on January 23, 2016 at 2PM. Please welcome our new members who are:
Cathy Fothergill – Livingston
Colleen Abernathy – Nacogdoches
Mike Waters – Diboll
Gene Winchester – Lufkin
Dr. Robert Carroll – Nacogdoches, who will serve the unexpired term of Bill Teague
Please be in prayer for our entire Board as they start this new year. There are already challenges ahead of them, but by trusting in the Lord He will see them through the difficult times.
Due to poor participation and lack of caterpillar applications for the Boy’s Chrysalis flight scheduled for January 15 – 18, 2016, we have been forced to postpone Chrysalis Flight # 21 until late spring or early summer. The new dates for this flight will be announced both on Facebook and the website. The Girl’s Flight also has a scheduling issue since the original dates were March 17 – 20, 2016 which is Palm Sunday. This situation is making it difficult to find clergy who can participate. The flight can not happen without clergy, so it has to be postponed as well. Please be in prayer that both of these flights can find suitable weekends and be put on the schedule.
In His Grip,
Community Lay Director
