Important Information from Frank Runion:

Due to the weather prediction of heavy rains this evening, the Emmaus Executive Committee has decided to cancel the gathering tonight. The grounds surrounding the pavilion are still saturated from the heavy rains yesterday. We all look forward to our next gathering July 10th at Waterville Baptist Church at 7:00 PM. Board meeting at 6:00. Enjoy your evening and stay dry. Blessings, Frank

Next Gathering:

The next Gathering of the Cleveland Emmaus/Chrysalis Community will be held this coming Monday, June 5th at 6:30 PM. This is the annual picnic held at Johnson Woods at the Pavilion. There is no childcare for this event. There is no board meeting that night either. You are welcome to bring a guest that has never been on the Walk to the Picnic. Please bring your best covered dish and be prepared for a night of fellowship with the Body of Christ. Follow the sign posts inside Johnson Woods to the Pavilion.


From Exit 20 travel east to the Lee Highway exit. Turn right at the end of the ramp. At Journey Church turn right onto Brymer Creek Road. Go straight into Johnston Woods. In Johnson Woods, follow the signs to the Picnic Pavillion in stead of going to Hurt Lodge.


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.
