The Challenge is ON!

Community Lay Director, Linda Holt, is challenging every Cluster to sponsor, sponsor, sponsor this year! Each time a pilgrim is sponsored a ribbon will be added that represents the Cluster/Cluster Grouping. At the end of the 2019, the Cluster/Cluster Grouping who has the most pilgrims sponsored will be awarded the "Holy Spirit Stick" at the December AEC Board Meeting and will keep it for the next year. 

Let's get busy and share this wonderful gift -- invite someone to an Emmaus Walk this year!

Camp Sumatanga Projects - Help Needed

The projects listed below are being assigned to Sumatanga Maintenance Crew over the next three months.  If these tasks can be taken off their shoulders it will save the Camp money - and also free them to address larger infrastructure issues. Together we can have a real impact on the potential ministry AND the perception that new guests have onsite. There are many ways to address these items such as sending money to cover the supplies, asking local church youth groups to adopt a task, or Emmaus Clusters can make it a group activity for a day. 


Projects include: 

  • Painting: red doors at the Lodge, tables at McBee Pavilion, Darby One and Two Pavilions, picnic tables at the Snack Shack, bath house interior and exterior, support post in front of McKinney Atkins
  • Re-stain the picnic tables at the Pool 
  • Power wash the Pool deck, sidewalks in the Retreat Center area, Lodge porches. Assembly Hall entrances at Pool Camp
  • Prune and clean up trail behind Lodge along creek, Mountain Trail, and from Lodge to Pool Camp, the trail around the lake. and the trail beside Eva Walker going to Alpine Tower
