The Lay Directors have approved lists and have begun making their commitment calls for the February Walks. Prayer will give you the correct answer and direction when the call is received. You will be asked to evaluate your priorities, make some sacrifices, spend some money, and make a difference in some lives, or not. Your Choice.
For those of you that have worked a walk, you will remember all of the long hours, the weekend trainings, the exhaustion when it is over – Oh Yes, don’t forget the tears of joy, the smiles of gratitude, the closeness of Christ. Not a bad trade even if only one participant comes to Christ in a new way of life.
Once the Head positions are filled, the balance of the teams will be firmed up. Don’t pass up the opportunity to serve if you can.
On the closer to home front, I am anxious to see a list of the reunion groups. I understand there have been several new groups formed since the summer walks.
Remember they are the strength of our organization. EVERYONE – get into, or start a reunion group. You will hear the question asked more frequently, it can be a prelude to an opportunity.
Don’t forget the next ETEC Gathering is scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd at “Shebbyville” FUMC. Sponsorship training will be held at 4pm followed by potluck dinner and festivities beginning at 5pm. Bring your favorite dish. Ask your church friends and Sunday school partners to come and enjoy a great evening with Christian friends. Invite everybody but the baby sitter.
