I am writing this to share with you something that has been placed on my heart. I was at a reunion group breakfast on tuesday and I heard a brother say something very profound and pertainent to our community. He said, "when you hit rock bottom I reckon that's a pretty good place to start building a foundation".
Because of the events of the last year and a half we have as a community kind of hit rock bottom. Our community has been dormant and now we need to focus on rebuilding from a firm foundation. A foundation built on Christ and christian discipleship.
The foundation of Emmaus is built on sponsorship. The purpose of sponsoring a pilgrim is to have them come on the weekend and then return to their respective churches to become leaders. Emmaus is a Kingdom building program. Our churches need leaders. We need pilgrims.
As you know, we don't sponsor someone to fix them. We don't sponsor someone so they will come have a fun weekend (even though they will), and we should not sponsor someone and forget them.
Become the Hands and feet of Christ. Sponsor a pilgrim
Gathering: August 14th, @ EMC ( Evangelical Methodist) in Elizabeth City. 630
