Noahs of Ark


Linda (Barker) Hignight

Face to Face Encounter—an adaptation of the Walk to Emmaus—was designed specifically to address the needs and life-stages of the 60-plus age group. Topics of discussion include discipleship, mission, grief, and end-of-life issues. Led by clergy and lay leaders, this program strengthens and renews followers of Christ and bolsters the spiritual lives of individuals, families, and congregations everywhere.

Two Face to Face Encounters were held this summer; Encounter #4 was held at Piney Grove UMC. Valerie Jackson served as lay director, and Terry Chapman was Spiritual director. 33 pilgrims attended. Mabelvale UMC was the host site for Encounter #5, with Carolyn Gray serving as lay director. 15 pilgrims attended.

We’re looking forward to more opportunities to share the Face to Face Encounter in other areas of Arkansas. We will keep you informed as those events are scheduled.

We appreciate all who served in the conference room and on support teams, all community members who attended candlelight and closing, everyone who wrote letters, and every person who prayed during these beautiful spiritual events.
