Remind 101

Have you ever missed a cluster gathering, and wished you had gotten a reminder on your phone by text message?

Remind101 is a service that will send you an automated text message reminding you of upcoming gatherings.

To sign up, send a text message to: 205-614-5505 that says:  @bhamsouth

You will then get a reply asking you to enter your name, and once you reply to that, you will receive a text message before the next gathering!

Application to Serve

Working on a team can be a very rewarding way to serve the Emmaus Community.

As a member of the Birmingham South Cluster, we encourage you to prayerfully complete the Information and Application to Serve form. This form is used by the cluster to identify your areas of interest for service in the cluster. When there is a walk that involves the Birmingham South Cluster, the Lay Director will normally ask for and review this information to assist in planning a team.

Directions on where to send the form are included in it.

Please complete this service sheet whenever your information or changes, such as after serving on a team or at least once a year.

You can download the service sheet here: Application to Serve
