Calling all 'chronologically-gifted' Community members!
The New-Ark Area Emmaus Community is planning to hold its Face to Face Encounter #4 at Friendship Village, a senior living community in northeast Columbus, Ohio, near Westerville. The Encounter will be held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in August, 2018, starting on the 7th.
The Face to Face Emmaus Ministry is unique in that its events are not always held in the same central location, but are taken out to the locations where the prospective participants are. Holding a Face to Face Encounter in a different location (Columbus) and a different venue (a senior living community) is an important next step for us as we continue to develop this ministry in the central Ohio area.
In order to move ahead with planning and preparations, we need to determine if there is sufficient interest and commitment of persons in the New-Ark Area Emmaus Community to form a conference room team for an Encounter held in Columbus.
For Face to Face Encounters, it is intended that conference room team members generally be of the same age as the participants. So, team members should be mid- to late-'fifty-something' or older.
Members of the Encounter team must commit to attend weekly team formation meetings held in Newark or Heath starting in early June, and to participate in all eight half-day Encounter sessions in Columbus on August 7, 9, 14, 16, 21, 23, 28, and 30.
If you are interested in being part of the team providing this Face to Face Encounter in Columbus, we ask that you please complete and submit the online interest form below by January 20, 2018. Please note that submission of this form does not obligate you to serve, nor does it guarantee you will be asked to serve in your requested role on the upcoming team.
