Latest News

June 1 gathering at Truelove’s Barn update. As of now we plan to have this gathering but it’s going to be a little different. We plan to have the food catered and we must practice safe distancing. We are asking everyone in the community that plans to attend to comment to this message that you are coming and how many will be with you. Sorry but child care WILL NOT be provided at this gathering. PLEASE RESPECT THE SAFE DISTANCING RULE. Everyone will be happy to see each other but remember to respect everyone’s space. If we have to reschedule this June gathering we plan to have the same format in July. We will be making plans to safely take communion and eat at safe distances. Can’t wait to see everyone.

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.
