June newsflash
of Chrysalis, Music Trivia and Praise & Worship morning

Out of the starting blocks

Our vision of becoming
A vibrant, financially viable Christian Community offering regular fellowship and other opportunities before and after full Flights and Walks in growing God’s kingdom
is underway. We are out of the proverbial starting blocks thanks to a team effort in hosting a successful music trivia, a reunion tea and forthcoming Chrysalis Flights.

Emmaus Reunion Tea

Thank you to everyone who supported the ladies’ reunion tea. We were blessed to have 29 of a possible 33 former lay directors in attendance, 16 of whom hosted tables for the 160 guests. The singing, the happy chatter and ‘change our world’ message all helped to rekindle the Emmaus flame, while the R13 000 raised will substantially help to grow the PE Emmaus Community’s bank balance. As shared, fees paid by pilgrims/caterpillars/team members do not even fully cover the costs of accommodation. This needs to be subsidised.

Chrysalis Flights

Another big thank you must go to the community for both sponsorship of caterpillars and commitment to working. We are thrilled to report that 21 girls and 21 boys are signed up for the flights in July.
Training began this past weekend and will continue again on 24/25 June to prepare our teams for their individual servant roles in growing God’s kingdom. We still need one or two experienced team members to work in support on the Boys’ Flights. Is God calling you?

Agape request

With our Chrysalis Flights around the corner, we’re appealing to all Accountability groups to provide agape. While our numbers are not quite finalised, please start working on agape. Please contact Leone Maasdorp who is facilitating the process and can collect your contributions on 072 150 3450 or  agape@pe-emmaus.co.za or leonemaasdorp@gmail.com

Music trivia
On Saturday (10 June), we will host our second music trivia evening for the year. With 18 tables of 10 competing at Walmer Methodist Church, it promises to another fun-filled evening. In fact, music trivia is catching, with plans in place to host a music trivia evening in Kenton-on-Sea later this year.

Please diarise the morning of Saturday 5 August for a praise and worship sessions with our Emmaus and Chrysalis musos at St John’s Methodist Church.
Till our next communication, please continue to pray for community members facing adversity; for our flights and those involved and for the PE Emmaus and national EMSA boards.
