Fall 2020 Walks

After much prayer, thought, analysis, and deliberation, the SONrise Emmaus Board of Kingsport has voted to cancel the Fall 2020 Walks and all associated events leading up to the Walks. This decision comes with hearts eager to serve our Lord, and with the safety of His people at the forefront.

In this time of uncertainty, we assert that Jesus is Lord and that He still reigns. This decision has been bathed in prayer and with the consideration of all who would be involved. With the COVID cases reported on the rise and the sanctity of the events involved with the Walk, the safety of all people involved has to be paramount. This also aligns with our respect of Federal, State, Local, & Church guidelines.

I have spoken with the leadership of the Walks and they are still committed to serving as we plan for the Spring of 2021. Please continue to individually and corporately pray for Christ to show up in our lives and our Community.

In Hebrews 10: 35-36 we are encouraged to not do away with our confidence for it has a great reward but to endure so that when we carry out the will of God, we may receive & enjoy to the full what is promised. It is in this spirit that we look forward to the Spring of 2021 and the Walks at that time.

The planning and adaptation will continue as we navigate these times. We acknowledge that even in uncertainty, that Jesus invites us to Himself....to know Him, to hear from Him, to love Him. We are His beloved.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your Love.

Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.

O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful,

Grant that by the same Holy Spirit, we may be truly wise, and ever enjoy your consolations.

Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
