The Walk to Emmaus
"Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus. While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them...their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight. They said to each other, 'Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?' "
The Gospel of Luke 24:13, 15, 31-32

Community Chairperson Message
It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I can announce that the HNEC Board has begun plans to have immediate Team Selection for the upcoming September 2021 Men’s Walk #110 (Sept 23-26) and Woman’s Walk #109 (Sept 30-Oct 3).
The Walks are Back!
Like I mentioned in my last message to the Community, these types of decisions are not made in haste but made with much prayer and in consultation with the Walk Leadership Teams, as well as some of the Sponsors for and Pilgrims that have already registered for these walks. With the increased Vaccination Rates, lowering of precautions by the CDC, State, and Local Authorities, and with minimal on-site changes to allow for Social Distancing (Dining Hall used for Conference Room), added extra disinfection procedures by Agape Team members and potential Meal Prep/Serving and Kitchen precautions, the Board feels secure that the “Emmaus experience” that we all know, can be fully appreciated by Pilgrims and Team.
I would like to repeat what we have been announcing via other emails and Social Media. If you would like to serve as a Team Member for one of these Walks, please feel free to send me or anyone on the Board an email (Team Service Interest form is available here). Additionally, please continue to pray and talk with your friends, church members and family members about going on The Walk. Sponsor someone now.
Lastly, I am also excited that The Board will be hosting a Live Gathering on Saturday July 17th at Camp Lone Star Pines (formerly Kaiserhoff)! This will be a time of great fellowship, worship, sharing a meal provided by the Board, Sponsorship Training, 4th Day Speakers, and a Message and Communion. Please plan on attending and invite someone interested in Emmaus.
We are all familiar with our Luke 24 Emmaus scriptures, but earlier in In Luke 4:13 - The devil had just finished every temptation he had to throw at Jesus…but in Luke 4:14 - Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.
The devil has indeed been at work on us lately too, but the Spirit can work in us as it did in Jesus, and we can spread the news of Him through the whole countryside!
