Meet the Lay Director

In assuming the role as Community Lay Director  for 2019, the Board and I are committed to ensuring we continue to have positive impacts on those within our community and the unknown pilgrims who will be called to experience the Walk to Emmaus.  Sometimes, we need to step back and recall our own experiences in which our faith walks were renewed.  We need to maintain that positive impact all of the time in all areas of our communities.

In 2019, we are facing many challenges.  We as a community must make a concerted effort to recognize those who have shown a servant's heart, leadership skills and have demonstrated through their gifts that they would be open and willing to participate in the Emmaus experience.  As a Board, we are also keenly aware of the growing numbers of our senior population who want to participate but are unable to due other constraints.  We are examining and preparing ourselves for the Face-to Face initiative which can meet their needs.

As we continue in 2019, may we each recall our three-day experiences, knowing for certain that we, the Aldersgate community have been blessed by the Holy Spirit and that God is working within us.

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 the walk. For example, for the March 7-11 Men's Walk, you can find the names by clicking here.

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

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?

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.

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 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.

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! †♥†
