Are You Ready?

The spring weekends start in 16 days! Are you ready? Are your ready to…

Sponsor? If you have a caterpillar you wish to send and forgot to get the application turned in, please get in touch with Kim Cottingham ASAP. The caterpillar deadline is today March 30th.

Pray? Prayer is part of the foundation for each weekend. Please join us in praying for the Chrysalis teams, the 14+ caterpillars, and offsite team, as we all come together to serve, learn about and praise our Holy Father. The Prayer vigils are now up online and can be found in the links below.

Serve? It takes many hands and feet to make each weekend happen. With two full teams and 14+ caterpillars, we need some of our AMAZING community to step up and help serve off-site. We still need helpers in Chapel, Agape, Set-up, and the Kitchen.  Please contact Codi Richards if you would like to serve off-site.

Be Present? Please consider coming to Send-off on Friday, April 17th at 8:30am and stay for Sponsors hour after. Then, come back and see us again on Saturday night, April 18th, at 8:00pm to show the caterpillars and team what the body of Christ looks like. And finally come and see us on Sunday afternoon, April 19th, at 3:00pm to hear what all God will have accomplished over the weekend. I can guarantee you there will be some AWESOME testimonies given.

The Chrysalis community is excited to welcome so many new members into our family in just a few short weeks. Please help us make these weekends some of the very best. The youth are relying on YOU to be the Hands and Feet of Christ.

With 2 full teams and 14+ caterpillars we are going to have one very full camp on the upcoming Chrysalis weekend! We are going to be so full, we would like to borrow an RV for some of the offsite to sleep in. If you have an RV and are willing to let Chrysalis borrow it for the weekend, please get in touch with Codi Richards on Facebook, by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call/text her at 304-657-2013. Thank you!

Fly with Christ,

 Make a joyful noise onto the Lord.

The Emmaus & Chrysalis boards are looking to purchase a sound system for the community. This will be extremely helpful for those willing to lead music but don’t have all the fancy equipment. We use to have one several years ago but it wore out. If you would like to make a special donation to help cover the cost of the sound system please mail it to: NCWV Emmaus/Chrysalis PO Box 83 Fairmont WV 26554. Thanks and God Bless.

Letter from Community LD & SD

Greetings Community! It's hard to believe that the year is passing us by so quickly. It's been a wonderful opportunity to serve since last year as your Community Lay Director. It was brought to my attention that according to our bylaws I'm only to serve one term as the Community's Lay Director.  I immediately contacted our board and we are blessed to have Jim Sailor (who was serving as Assistant Community Lay Director and secretary this year) step up and agree to serve as our Community's Lay Director.  I will assume his position as the assistant community lay director and secretary to the board.
It has been my honor to serve and look forward to everything God has in store for us this year. I ask that your continued prayers remain with all of the board members, our upcoming walks and flights and our new members that will be joining our community.
May God Bless You!
DeColores,
G'na Stephens

Hello to my brothers and sisters in the Emmaus community. Due to being out of compliance with the Emmaus by laws, the Emmaus board have taken steps to get back in compliance. That being said, G'na Stephens and I have traded jobs. I am now the community lay director, while G'na will be the assistant lay director. I pray that God gives me the ability to lead this community as well as G'na did.
The spring walks are rapidly approaching. Teams are meeting now to be ready for the upcoming walks. Please be in prayer that God can use you either in the kitchen, the chapel, doing agape, praying, or any other way he can use you. Remember your weekend? I do. It would be a shame, soon to be pilgrims would not be able to experience God talking to them the way he did to me on my weekend.
Please be in prayer.
May God richly bless you all.
DeColores!

Hi, everyone! I hope everyone's Fourth Day's are going well! I will be leaving the Emmaus Board as Community Spiritual Director. It has been an honor and privilege to serve the Community in this way, and to serve with my fellow Board members! I am glad to announce the new Community Spiritual Director--our brother Ed Moats. He has been serving already as Assistant Spiritual Director and in many other ways also, and I feel that Ed is a great choice. Thanks again!
Love in Christ,
Steve Stemple
