Meet the Lay Director

In Acts 14:21-22, the apostles Paul and Barnabas traveled to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain “True to the Faith”.  For going on 40 years, we in the Aldersgate Community have been taking on the role of Paul & Barnabas and encouraging others in our community to remain “True to the Faith” through our walks, reunion groups, and 4th day gatherings.  We have been silenced for the last 2 years by external sources beyond our control.  But it is time again in 2022 to revel in the power of the Holy Spirit.  It is time for us to remain “True to the Faith” just as the apostles did.  I urge all of us, myself included, to again be an active participant in the Aldersgate Community.  Spread the news of the 5 walks for 2022 in your local churches.  Sign up to work a team.  Sponsor a Pilgrim.  Be a part of a 4th day gathering.  God gives us His love and grace unconditionally, but we are given the task of spreading that Good News.  It’s up to us to fulfill that task.  Remember, as it says on our crosses: “Christ Is Counting on You”, that is ALL OF US.

As you all know, we are having five walks this year to help make up for 2020 and 2021. To that end, we need Team Members for the Men's & Women's Walks #159 in March, and the Men's and Women's Walks #160 in October. Please prayerfully consider becoming a Team Member to deepen your participation in the Walk to Emmaus. We all know from experience that the Walks are amamzing, but I'll tell you from my experience that working on a team expands that amazing feeling for you!

Many of you have expressed your desire to pray individually for our Pilgrims, but are not quite sure how to find Pilgrim and team names. For each walk, the list of Pilgrims and team are contained on the detail page of each walk. 

If you would like to sign-up for a specific place on the Prayer Clock, you can view available time slots by clicking here.

DeColores and thank you for showering our weekends with your prayers.

I had an experience recently that reinforced to me just how important it is to invite others to attend the Walk to Emmaus. There is a couple in our church that often sits behind us at Sunday worship. Last Sunday, we turned around and asked them if they had heard of the Walk to Emmaus. They said they had and the man went on to say, “Over the years, I’ve thought about going, but just never had anyone ask me.” Well, we asked and guess who is now attending the March Men’s walk?

I was a pilgrim on Maryland Emmaus 102 in 2002. I was a baby Christian at the time, and my pilgrim walk was so timely and invigorating. I am eager to get plugged in to my new home here in Tbe Villages.

My attendance at the Walk to Emmaus was the most meaningful spiritual growth experience that I have ever had! I was inspired to reach out to others and to spread God's love.

For 25 years I was a Sunday-only Christian, but my Emmaus walk showed me that going to church is not enough. We must also BE the church. Now I live out my Christian faith everyday in many ways.

My Emmaus weekend was a turning point in my life. No longer was I just going to church. I learned how to BE the church! And I have been blessed by it ever since! †♥†

During my Walk to Emmaus weekend, I experienced the love of Christ in a way that I could have never imagined. It helped me to better understand what it means to be a part of the body of Christ and to share His love with the world.
