Hello Emmaus/Chrysalis Brothers and Sisters,
Many lives changed this spring through Chrysalis Flight # 25, the Men’s Emmaus Walk # 87 and Women’s Emmaus Walk # 88. Luke 24:32 says “Did not our heart burn within us… “ . The Agape love that you showed the caterpillars and pilgrims was outstanding. Thank you Bowling Green Emmaus/Chrysalis Community

Since the beginning of the year new things have been happening within the community. These things are:

• IMS- Internet Membership Systems- Emmaus/Chrysalis database system- this is our new database in order to keep our records up to date about Flights/Walks and the positions you have worked. This system is used by other communities across the country. More information will be available in the future. In the meantime, please complete your volunteer form every time you serve on a Walk or Flight. This information will be entered into the system. If you have worked in the last year or so, you need to complete the form also. The old system and the new system will not merge together.
• Fundraising- The fundraising efforts thus far have been the sale of our Emmaus/Chrysalis tee-shirts. They are $10 each. Thanks to Staci Haney for design and printing them. If you don’t have yours yet, we have more available. The Board has been selling RADA knives and other products. Please see a board member with a catalog to help you make an order. Our third fundraising endeavor is coming up on May 13 at the Gathering. We will have a spaghetti dinner at 5:00pm in the Family Life Center at Christ United Methodist Church. The cost is $5. The menu is salad, spaghetti, bread and dessert. The Gathering Worship service will follow in the sanctuary at 6pm. (Fundraising is an effort to offset cost such as the new database, insurance, trailer truck repairs, scholarships…..)

Remember Gatherings are the Second Saturday at 6 p.m. of every month.

We are excited to announce the following:

Bowling Green Emmaus #37

Fellow Brothers & Sisters in CHRIST,

I am so excited for the Bowling Green/ South Central Kentucky Emmaus & Chrysalis Community because the Spirit of the LORD is moving powerfully through our community. The Men's Walk to Emmaus will be beginning Thursday Evening September 13th at 6:00PM at the Christ United Methodist Church and the Women's Walk the very next week starting on Thursday September 20th at same time and location as the Men's Walk.
As our Community revives from it's slumber of the past few years, we must never forget why this Community was formed to begin with, which was to bring ALL people with a closer walk with our LORD JESUS CHRIST and to empower and strengthen them to go back into each person's church and serve in a powerful way.
I want each and every one of you to remember back to your own walk or flight and reflect on the powerful and life changing experiences you had during your special weekend. So I am asking for each of you to come and support these pilgrims as they go through their "once in a lifetime" experience by serving in some way (serving meals, candlelight, agape, snack food, etc.)
We MUST not quit and be diligent in our efforts to serve the LORD and the spirit and movement of GOD will make this Community wonderful again and have a waiting list for those who want to come on the Walk and for those who want to serve on the Team.
I want to "Thank" all the loyal and faithful folks who have kept this Community alive with their service and dedication, but now it is time for ALL of us to move forward and make this the best Emmaus/ Chrysalis Community that it can be. You can count on me to do whatever needs to be done and I will stand with each and every one of you who are equally committed to serving out Lord.
DeColores and Fly With Christ!!
