July Gathering – POSTPONED

Due to the rising cases of Covid-19 in Cleveland and Bradley County, we have decided to postpone the July gathering and board meeting at this time. There will be NO GATHERING on July 6th. Please continue to check the website for updates on when we will meet in person again and updates regarding the August gathering. Let’s continue to pray for our community and we look forward to being able to meet in person again soon!

Please see the Upcoming Walk Schedule for all changes


There is a section on the website detailing Agape food and drinks and Agape gifts. Please read this sections. Large gifts while the Walk is in progress should not be brought to the Woods.

Agape Letters:

When you send an Agape letter to a Pilgrim or Caterpillar, Please use the full name of the person receiving the letter. That ensures that the right person receives their letter.

New Addition:

If you notice at the right of this page, we have added a new addition. It is the past Walk Leaders page. It was a labor of Terry McCoy and Rick Duncan and many others. Over the last year, they have worked to make this as complete as possible. Some names have been omitted and if you know who these folks are, please let me know and we will get them added. Again, thanks to Terry McCoy and Rick Duncan. Hopefully, we can find the information to publish a Chrysalis Flight page soon.

I am pleased to introduce you to a new feature of our website. See the side bar to the left and click on Kairos to be connected to a detailed explanation of Kairos and an introduction to the team members and talks, etc. for the very first Women’s Kairos in this area.
