Walking and Flying With Christ

A Newsletter of the Northern California/Nevada Emmaus/Chrysalis Community

April 14, 2014


The Team Weekend for the May/June Walks is next weekend, April 25-26.  

The Women’s Walk is nearly full, but the Men’s Walk is in need of Pilgrims. Please pray earnestly and quickly about sponsoring someone for the Men’s Walk to Emmaus to be held May 29-June 1 at the Woodland United Methodist Church.  A Team has been formed and they are ready, willing, and excited to be serving Christ in this ministry.

 Please consider whom God is putting on your heart to sponsor.

 Applications are on the website at ncnec.org.  Twelve applications must be in by April 21, or the Men’s Team Weekend and Men’s Walk Weekend will be cancelled.   Six applications have been received.
 Applications are on the website: ncnec.org.


Check out the new, user friendly website.  Same address, ncnec.org, same great information, easier to access.  Thanks to Chrysalis participant, Clay Brinkman for using his website creation skills to bring us up to date!!

While you are on the new website, click on the link to the prayer wheel sign up to pray during the 72 hour weekend.  Once on the Prayer Wheel site, scroll down to find Northern California/Nevada Emmaus Community, click on that, and pick your prayer time.


As part of the Board’s emphasis on the Fourth Day/Next Steps, Community Wide Gatherings are being planned for one to two weeks after each set of Walks/Flights.

 Mark your calendars now for 2014. 
June 14 in Woodland     August 9 in Truckee     November 1 in South Reno.

These events are open to ANYONE interested in joining an exciting Christian Community!!!  Everyone is encouraged to attend!!  See friends!  Make new ones!!  Sing!!  Eat!!   Look for additional details in future Newsletters.

A committee will be exploring a better way to format and deliver the Newsletter that will enable people to “opt in” to receive the Newsletter.  They will also explore a more efficient way to manage the prayer wheel and prayer scroll.
