Walk to Emmaus
While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and walked with them. – Luke 24:15
The Walk to Emmaus is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers. The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities, and places of work.
Who should go to Emmaus?
Emmaus is open to members of any Christian denomination. The experience helps develop Christian leaders who: are members of a local church, have a desire to strengthen their spiritual lives, may have unanswered questions about their faith, understand that being a Christian involves responsibility, and are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God in an ongoing manner.
What happens on the Emmaus Weekend?
You will enjoy three days of singing, learning, laughing, worshiping, reflecting, praying, and participating in small groups. Small group discussions center on the talks you have heard on the themes of God’s grace. You’ll also discover how grace is real in your life, how you live a life of grace, and how you bring that grace to others.
You will have the opportunity to participate in the daily worship and celebration of Holy Communion and to understand more fully the body of Christ. You will leave the journey with an experience of Christian love in action that will equip you for new levels of grace-filled service and leadership.
