    Who should go to Emmaus?

    The Walk to Emmaus is ecumenical. It is, therefore, open to members of any Christian denomination. Emmaus is for the development of 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
    • Are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God in an ongoing manner

    How to Attend a Walk

    To get involved in Emmaus, each person must have a sponsor who has already attended an Emmaus weekend. Many of our church members have attended weekends as will be happy to sponsor you!

    What happens on the Emmaus Weekend?

    You will enjoy three days of singing, learning, laughing, worshiping, reflecting, praying and participating in small groups. Discussions center around fifteen talks given by laity and clergy. These talks present the theme of God’s grace, how that grace comes alive in the Christian community and how it is expressed in the world. 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 celebration of Holy Communion and to understand more fully the body of Christ. You will experience God’s grace through the prayers and acts of anonymous service offered by the Emmaus community. You will leave with an experience of Christian love in action that will equip you for new levels of grace-filled service and leadership.
