Annual Training Event

The 2019 Annual Training Event is coming up August 16-17 at Camp Sumatangao. The overnight event is sponsored by the Alabama Emmaus Community and is scheduled the same weekend as the August Walk.

On Friday evening, dinner is available at 6:00 pm prior to the meeting at 7:00, which includes a memorial service for members who have passed away in the previous year. On Saturday, classes are offered to train you in every aspect of serving on a team. The schedule is set so that a person may take at least three classes.

There are also general sessions with updates from Community leadership. Many guidelines have been revised since last August, so there will be something new to learn.

It is to your advantage to attend. By doing so, your name is given to future Lay Directors when they attend Lay Director Training. Registration forms will be available at the Cluster meetings.

At the Cluster Leadership Training event in February, Linda Holt, Community Lay Director, announced a sponsorship competition challenge between Cluster Groupings for the most Pilgrims sponsored this year. She presented a colorful 'Holy Spirit Stick' - about 2' long and wrapped in multicolored ribbons. Smaller ribbons tied on the ends are in different colors for each Grouping. Our Grouping is yellow. Each time a Pilgrim is sponsored by the Athens, Shoals or Moulton Clusters, a yellow ribbon will be tied to the end of the stick. This stick will be awarded to the winner at the December Alabama Emmaus Community Board Meeting.
