DeColores ETEC 4th Day,
2020 has been a long year that has challenged all of us including the Upper Room Emmaus Ministries worldwide.
Thanks to the generous members of our East Texas Emmaus Community (ETEC), our community is in good financial position. However the Emmaus "Home Office" needs our help to maintain operations during the current pandemic. As a result, the ETEC Board has voted to make a $1000.00 donation to the Emmaus Ministries in Nashville, and also to set aside an additional $1000.00 to match donations made by our 4th Day members like you.
Although the Emmaus movement falls under the oversight of the Upper Room organization, it operates as a completely stand-alone entity; receiving no funding from the Upper Room. Emmaus' primary source of funding is Pilgrim Walk fees. As Walks have been postponed all over the world this year due the Covid-19 pandemic, they essentially have no income. For most of 2020, the ministry has been operating from emergency funds, but with no idea of when things will get back to normal, without fundraising, the Church is at risk of losing the Emmaus Ministry.
The ETEC Board wants to involve you, our 4th Day members, to help our larger Emmaus Community. We invite all of you to donate, as you are able, to help support Emmaus during this uncertain time; knowing your ETEC Board will match those donations up to $1000.00. Together, we can contribute at least $3000.00 to the world wide ministry of Emmaus and join with our 4th day brothers and sisters all over this country, and the world, in continuing the Emmaus blessing to the Church of Jesus Christ.
If you can help,
· Make your donations payable to: East Texas Emmaus Community
· Mail your donations to: P.O. Box 153013, Lufkin Texas 75915-3013.
Remember your ETEC is a 501c3 organization so all donations are tax deductible. Thanks for your continued support of the Emmaus movement and look for more Community announcements to come soon.
Stay safe and stay faithful.
ETEC Walk #43, Table of St. Luke
Covering a geographic area of roughly a 100 mile radius from the Nacogdoches/Lufkin region, the East Texas Emmaus Community is a locally governed affiliate of “The Walk to Emmaus” as administered by The Upper Room ministry unit of the General Board of Discipleship of The United Methodist Church. However, the Walk experience is ecumenical in nature and welcomes church members of all Christian denominations. The ETEC plans and hosts two walks (1 women’s, 1 men’s) per year. We invite you to follow the links on this page to learn more about the Walk To Emmaus.
