Hello everyone! It’s a new year and I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! 2018 is well underway and so are our Oceanside activities…
The Spring walks approaching and the teams are getting ready! Meetings will begin late February, so if you’re interested in serving, please reach out to the weekend Lay Directors, Sam Battle (954-224-0170) and Lauren Didriksen (561-755-3540) and we’ll get you connected.
The walks are scheduled for:
• Men’s #89 – April 19-22
• Women’s #90 – April 26-29
We’re also still looking for pilgrims. NOW is the time to finalize your plans for sponsorship and submit your pilgrim applications. WE NEED MEN AND WOMEN PILGRIMS!!! As a reminder, here is the link to the Pilgrim Application
Last Saturday we had a WONDERFUL gathering at Davie UMC. Pastors Larry Hinkle, Larry Bergstrom, and Simon Osunlana led us in some very directed prayer sessions that were quite uplifting. We are so blessed to have these men of God leading our community as Spiritual Directors. THANK YOU guys!!! and THANK YOU Pastor Zig and all of our brothers and sisters at Davie for a fantastic evening!
We don’t have an date set for the next gathering, but if your church is interest in hosting, please reach out to Carolyn Curry (954-439-4030)
As I’ve posted before, the board feels very strongly about spending some one-on-one time with every church in our community. So if you are interested in having someone from the board visit your church, please let your church rep know. If you don’t know who your church rep is, please contact Tony Ash (954-326-2177)
There are some exciting things in store for us in 2018, and we want to make sure EVERYONE is part of it. We look forward to seeing all of you at your churches, upcoming gatherings and during the weekends when you come up to serve and share fellowship with the entire community.
God Bless you all!!!
In His service,
Phil Connell, Oceanside Emmaus Community Lay Leader
