Men's Walk #80 – October 27-30, 2016

Lay Director: Jim Tracy
Vice Director: Terry Emmel

Theme: Get Plugged In
Song: Same Power

I am humbled to be the Lay Director for the Men’s Walk #80. My Walk was #68 Spring 2010 and the theme was “It’s All About You Jesus”. It’s still all about Jesus.

My theme is based the need to see my brothers in Christ tap into the power of God that Jesus imparted to us. Once we are 'plugged in', we will have a new outlook on the things we can accomplish through Him. Jesus says in John 14:12, “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father”. Only when we understand the power we have through Jesus can we truly use that power with the heart of Christ in compassionate response to and for others.

In Romans 8:11, it says, “And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who lives in you”. My heart is for men to know who they are in Christ and how they can positively make a difference in their homes, workplaces, church's and communities.

Please pray for this Walk and the impact it will have on the hearts and minds of all who the Lord will lead to attend. Also, please pray for what your role may be, is it to work, sponsor, or be a prayer warrior? Only by seeking the Lord and His power will we be successful in changing our world!

 

Women's Walk #80 – November 10-13, 2016

Lay Director: Sherry Tracy
Vice Director: Marilyn Standley

Theme: Child of God
Song: HNo Longer Slaves

The theme of this Walk was inspired by my own journey both during and since my Walk, #60 in 2005. I pondered about the theme song until I heard "No Longer Slaves" by Jonathan Helser of Bethel Music. The first time I heard it I knew it was a perfect fit; it expresses the theme so beautifully. The media judges women’s value on temporal things: outward beauty, possessing a fabulous career, a perfect marriage, and a designer house in which we host lavish meals which we prepare ourselves after a 10 hour workday. We must have the requisite 2.5 children who are academically, athletically and musically gifted. Reality is not often reflected in life –- it’s messy! True value lies in our character and integrity – eternal things.

Who does God say we are? When we come to Him through Christ, He calls us His child. We are created in His image, accepted into His family, and called to fulfill His purpose by being His hands and feet. We are no longer slaves to fear, we are His chosen - the bride of God’s own Son, our Savior Jesus Christ.

I hope you will consider joining me on this journey by praying, working, and sponsoring as the Lord leads you. YOU ARE A "CHILD OF GOD!"
