Hello everyone at this point the Chrysalis teams are complete. Please pray for us and the teams as a whole. Pray these are God’s teams not ours. We can’t it without him an without your help so please pray. If you are not teaming come out and help in all ways possible show these boys and girls how important they are to us and our Lord. It is so important we need to build strong disciples and apostles for our world now more than ever. Our younger generation is our future and should be high on our priority list in our community.  Come support us offsite and be praying who God is calling you to sponsor. We want to have many butterflies to be able to fly with Christ 

Gathering News

Don't forget the community picnic on August 15 from 12-4 at Clarksburg City Park in Nutterfort Lions Shelter. The community will provide table service (i.e. plates, cups, napkins, cutlery etc.,) and hot dogs, buns and condiments. The picnic is a covered dish as has been done in the past.

A-H Vegetable Side Dish/Casserole

Background Check Policy

 

You may or may not know Chrysalis is required to do background checks for anyone teaming or working offsite. The chrysalis kids work on Emmaus weekends as well so the Emmaus board has decided to do background check too. The board has made a policy to answer all your questions about it. If you have further questions/comments/concerns about the background check send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

By-laws proposed amendment

During the June Emmaus Board Meeting the board discussed what to do about the empty board seats. The conclusion was to have the option of reducing the board to 12 members. In order to make this possible the by-laws need amended. The proposed amendment is listed below. The change will be approved in 45 days if no more than 25 community members submit written objections to the board.

Section 2.  Composition
a) The Emmaus Board will consist of fifteen (15) lay members, one clergy member; the Emmaus Community Spiritual Director, and a representative from the Chrysalis board.  This board shall be evenly balanced according to gender, denomination, age, and race, where possible.
