Chrysalis – Oct 2014

Denise C-3When I was first approached about becoming the Chrysalis Community Lay Director, I was pretty hesitant. For those of you who know me, I’m a much happier person hanging out behind the scenes, doing whatever I can to help. And for that reason, I put off letting Jared know one way or the other. It wasn’t until I heard a sermon one Sunday. The gist of that sermon was, “You have faith. Great! That’s awesome! Now what are you going to do with it?” That’s when I called Jared and let him know I would attempt to take over. So with that in mind, I want to thank Jared & Hope for the amazing job they have done this past year! I am sure I will be relying on all their expertise to help along this transition.

September saw two amazing College Age Journeys come & go. Nineteen young women and fifteen young men experienced the love of Christ in a whole new way, thanks to Patty Davenport and David Hunt and the Llano Emmaus Community. Patty & David did an absolutely amazing job and I’m sure both weekends will be remembered and looked upon as a life changing experience. Lives have been changed for the Kingdom!

Ashley Yates is on tap to run the Young Women’s Journey at the beginning of January and Jason Lindeman is ready to lead Young Men’s Journey in March. We are excited to see how God works through them and the teams He is building. Please be in prayer for both teams as they are coming together and also for the Caterpillars God has already called to be a part of Chrysalis.

the MazeOur 4th Annual Chrysalis Fund Raiser is in the works for Saturday, December 6th. Due to scheduling conflicts and various other factors, the location and menu have changed. We will have a BBQ dinner with all the fixins and it will be held at At’l Do Farms Corn Maze near Shallowater. Be on the lookout for ticket sales to start soon. This is an excellent opportunity to give friends, family and co-workers the gift of a great meal as well as helping to replenish our scholarship fund.

Again, I am looking forward to an amazing year for Chrysalis and hope everyone will reap the benefits of the work being done. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions and I will do my best to get them answered as best I can.

Fly with Christ!
