Oconee River Basin Walk to Emmaus Community

What’s New?



           ORBEC WALKS #17 & #18

                   WERE GREAT!!

Hallelujah was the song sung at the close of the Oconee River Basin Walk to Emmaus Walk #17 and #18, and it was a hallelujan moment! Walks #17 & #18 were full of the Love of Christ, exhibited by both Servants and Pilgrims on both weekends. The cool weather did nothing to cool the warmth shared for those 3 wonderful days in each weekend.

The Men’s Walk Servants welcomed some 25 Pilgrims, as the Women’s Walk Servants welcomed some 23 Pilgrims.  They were the best Walks EVER!

Sponsored by a few Reunion Groups, new Men’s members gathered again at Collinswood on the Tuesday following the Men’s Walk for a covered dish meal and lots of singing and love sharing. Following that mini gathering, again, a few Reunion Groups sponsored another covered dish meal For new men and women members. Some members spoke about their Reunion Groups, and Sylvia Puckett, Board Reunion Group Servant, told of how to start new Groups and how to go about joining established groups. She told of the importance of the Reunion Group as a Fourth Day activity, and offered her assistance in getting new members involved in a Reunion Group, whether new or existing. These mini gatherings for Reunion Group information are wonderful ways of continuing contact with new members and having beautiful Christian fellowship. De Colores

JUNE FUNDRAISER WAS A HIT

The Christmas in June Fundraiser held on June 10th was a great success.  The net funds realized from the fun night was over $3600.00.  The Silent Auction and Best Dessert contest were moneymakers, as well.

The Fundraising Committee is grateful for the hard work of those members who helped to make this night happen.

ORBEC WALKS #13 & 14 ARE GREAT SUCCESSES

The Men’s Walk may not have had as many Pilgrims as some former Walks, but there was no less prayer, praise, information, food and fun. The Pilgrims and the Servants on the Walk were all blessed by the weekend.

The Women’s Walk had 20 Pilgrims who love God and were refreshed in how Jesus wants us to be His Disciples and love as He loves us. The music was exceptional and all stood in praise of God. Everyone seemed to enjoy what was heard to be called “women’s kind of food.” The Women’s Walk Pilgrims and Servants were all blessed on this Walk, as well.

ORBEC welcomes all the men and women who attended Walks #13 & 14.
