NOVEMBER 2013 CAPE FEAR EMMAUS NEWSLETTER

Greetings! A big thank you to everyone who made both fall walks huge successes!! And, welcome to our newest community members. I hope the first thing you do is to pray about someone to sponsor on the upcoming SPRING walks! Having spring walks again has been a goal for a few years so I hope that you, the community, will make these happen. We cannot do anything without your continued support. Lay Directors have been selected for both walks and are listed elsewhere in the newsletter. Team selection will take place on November 23 rd so please keep everyone in prayer through this process. Don’t forget the Christmas Party on December 6 th at 3MC beginning at 6:00 pm. It will be a covered dish supper along with some wonderful music, fellowship and worship. Since this will be my last newsletter article as community lay director, I want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. I have to say this has been a real learning experience for me and I am grateful for your faith in me to lead the community. I have also been blessed to work with some dedicated, hardworking board members and for those who will rotate off this year I hope that you will join me in thanking them for their service to the community. I want to wish all of you a wonderful holiday season and know that God will greatly bless you and your families. I look forward to seeing you on December 6th!!! Blessings and love, Sammie
