Walk #184 is GOING TO HAPPEN!!

Due to our NOAC family's obedience and response to the 
Alert message and God's provisions and faithfulness we are
excited to share with you that the number of Pilgrim''s will
be sufficient to proceed with the plans for Women's Walk #184!

As always, our Community rallied  together in support of the 
needs of our wonderful NOAC family! May God pour out 
His favor on each of you as you have supported, prayed, 
and listened to His call!

WALK #184 IS HAPPENING!! PRAISE GOD!!!





WALK ALERT!! WALK ALERT!! WALK ALERT!!

posted Feb 22, 2017, 5:21 PM by Noahs Emmaus

We are "15 days" away from Women''s Walk #184 and to date we 
have only 18 Pilgrims signed up. 
These numbers are a shaky 18 because 2 are carryovers from a 
previous walk that didn't attend. 
We have been told there are two more applications in the mail. 
Even with those we could still end up with only 18!
Please be advised we are required to have 20 Pilgrims to have a Walk!  
If you know someone that is contemplating going on the Walk, 
then please contact Shari Coston at 
501-282-7824  or email:  sharicoston@gmail.com  IMMEDIATELY!! 
Pilgrim and Sponsor Applications with the Pilgrim walk fee is 
required to be in two weeks prior to the Walk! We are down to 
the count and, Emmaus Family, this is crucial that we get these 
Pilgrims signed up NOW so that Walk #184 can happen!!!

Also, Men's Walk #185 have only 10 Pilgrims signed up with 5 names 
being carried over from previous walks and need to be confirmed 
that they will attend! 
The Men's Walk numbers are are of great concern!  
Please get those names in ASAP! 

We have the two Lay Directors that have put their time/effort, 
heart and much prayer putting together God's Walks! The 
Women's Walk have had their practices and the Men's Walk 
will soon do likewise!

We all know God has the Big Plan, but He calls us to do our part! 
It''s time for each of us to be in fervent PRAYER, PRAYER, PRAYER!
Let's rise up to this challenge with Faith, Action, and Perseverance to 
make this happen for not only the Pilgrims but for the Glory of God! 


CHRIST IS COUNTING ON YOU!!! 

Cancellation of May 2017 Women's Walk

posted Feb 22, 2017, 5:18 PM by Noahs Emmaus   [ updated Feb 22, 2017, 5:23 PM ]

Through much thought, prayer and discussion, the May Women''s Walk for 2017 is officially cancelled. This decision was made only after meeting with Deb Ross, the Lay Director for that Walk, who was in total agreement. The Walk numbers will be adjusted and Deb will be placed back onto the list of candidates for a future Walk.

We still have Walks in March and April and both Walks have 20 or fewer Pilgrims at this time. Let us all be in prayer for Pilgrims we should be sponsoring.

Dear Emmaus Community: 
Serving the Noahs of Ark Community as the 2017 Board of Di-rectors Chair is an honor. I am very grateful and excited to have the op-portunity to serve the NOA Community --- a Community of programs and Christian members that have touched my life and mean so much to me. 
We all have our Emmaus Pilgrim Walk stories. Mine started on Walk #76 where I became aware of how much God loved me. While working on Emmaus Walks, Chrysalis Flights, Face to Face Encounters in the conference room, or on an outside team, I can always feel His love for the pilgrims and the team and I see the Holy Spirit all around.  
Our Board and Committees are off to a busy and deter-mined start. Please go to the website www.noahsofark.org under the Board section and learn who are on the Board.  These are people you may contact with any questions or input you may have for our NOA community.  Also, check out the people serving as Committee Chairs who would appreciate your ideas and input. 
The Noahs of Ark Community Newsletter is finally a reality.  We are grateful to Dale Clancy (Walk 129), who has volunteered to be our Newsletter Editor. He serves as the chaplain for the Good Samaritan Society in Hot Springs Village. He and his wife Shella live in Hot Springs Village.   
On July 8, 2017, the Noahs of Ark Community will be having both the Laity and Clergy Emmaus Regional Leaders coming to Little Rock for a Leadership Development Training. Last year we had the Up-per Room Leaders for our Chrysalis and Face to Face programs. This year we will have the Walk to Emmaus Training for the Board of Direc-tors, Spiritual Directors and anyone in the Emmaus Community who is interested in attending. Put it on your calendar today.  
We are working hard to do what God wants us to do in the No-ahs of Ark Community. I am asking for your prayers for God’s wisdom and will to be given to the Noahs of Ark Board as we work to grow all our programs. Please pray so that we might help build leadership in our churches, as well as provide a place for pilgrims to obtain a closer and more personal relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. 
Feel free to call or email me anytime if you have questions or suggestions. 









End of Year Letter from Board Chair

posted Dec 30, 2013, 10:35 AM by Noahs Emmaus

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

            Greetings and Happy New Year!  I trust each of you celebrated the birth of our Savior surrounded with family and friends!

            As 2013 comes to an end, I reflect on the goodness of God throughout our Emmaus Community. We, as a community and Board, experienced many challenges, blessings, and oppositions.  Changes came quickly this year as did some struggles, but your Board stood firm together and we persevered, stood firm in our faith and trusted that God would do what God does best, take care of all things.  The four walks were awesome as all walks are and Jehovah Jirah provided all that we needed and blessed us with more of His abundance.

You and I experienced His grace in a fresh, new way, and now we move forward to 2014 knowing that God truly blessed 2013 and will continue to bless us as a community of faithful believers ready and willing to be obedient servants and stewards as He calls us.  Our scheduled walks are rising to a level of such excitement that it’s becoming difficult not to anticipate.  I urge each you that if you have not signed up to work one of these walks, please go to our website and put your name in to work.  This is a blessing you will not want to miss. Again, the walk fee has been decreased to $160 for team members and pilgrims.

I want to give God praise for providing such a powerful Board in 2013, as they assisted me with such wisdom, discernment, and tackling the tasks that were given to each of us.  Your Board never wavered but sought God’s direction for each and every decision that was made. To God be the glory.  Your Board thanks you for your support, your prayers, and your love for this year. Just knowing your were there giving of yourselves with these things only made us stronger and more determined to make our Community stronger than ever before.

I have been so abundantly blessed as being your Chairman for 2013 and it has humbled me knowing that God gives His direction and we just follow Him.  I look forward with extreme excitement to see what God has for us as a Community. We move forward knowing we have the abounding grace of God!

The elections are over and these names will serve with our new Chairman of the Board, Kathy McLeod.  Charlie Owen (Central), Cheryl Allen (Northeast), Paul Butler (Northwest), Burt Ragland (Southeast), and Dianne Schoemaker (Southwest).  Please continue to pray for your Board and as they lead us into a new year!

I pray special blessings over each of you that as God leads us to serve Him we will continue to be sensitive to His calling and be His obedient servants! 

            Happy New Year and may you each receive abundant blessings from our Heavenly Father!

 

            DeColores!

            Your brother in Christ,

 

            Charles Scott

Fall Walks Filling Up Or Almost Full

posted Sep 8, 2013, 11:32 AM by Noahs Emmaus

We have two walks, one men's and one women's, that will be held in October.  There are 36 pilgrim spots on each walk.  We currently have plenty of room on the men's walk for applicants who wish to attend but we already have 34 women confirmed for the women's walk.  We can only take 2 more applications.  After that, any application that comes in will be put on a waiting list.  If for some unforeseen circumstance a lady can not attend, the first person on the waiting list will be called.  Unforeseen circumstances happen all the time, so please get those applications in.  An application MUST have the pilgrims form, the sponsor form AND the check for $200.00 before the registrar can place them on the walk or on the waiting list.  

We are so very excited to see the walk's filling up.  Guys we want to see full Men's walks too.  Please consider those you know in your church who have shown interest in the walk or who you think might be looking for away to experience Christ in a deeper way and speak with them about attending.
