Greetings from the Chrysalis Board:
I want to share some EXCITING NEWS...CHRYSALIS IS GOING TO FLY AGAIN! Yes, you read that correct...Chrysalis is going to fly again in our community. Through the prayers, work, and efforts of many, Chrysalis is about to launch again here in our South Central, Kentucky, area. The next flight as you may have read above is going to be November 25-27, 2016, at Bowling Green High School in Bowling Green, KY. Lay Directors have been found (Darrel Wheat & Malissa Williams) and the team is being formed. This is exciting.
Chrysalis has been dormant and in a sense, encased within a cocoon a development for eight LONG years. That mystery is about to burst forth though as we we welcome up to 70 caterpillars (35 males and 35 females) on the next flight. They will learn to fly with Christ and go through the metamorphosis of grace to become 70 butterflies who will go to make a difference. It is going to be a great weekend! Please pray for that weekend.
Rev. Chris Patterson
Spiritual Director, Chrysalis
The next Emmaus Walks are going forward. See the dates above and plan to be a part of these weekends. We need to start filling them now.
If you have ideas, questions, suggestions, etc., PLEASE feel free to email: Mark Williams at "firstname.lastname@example.org"

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!!
