Welcome to the Website for the Southwest Virginia Walk to Emmaus Community!
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 a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the love and grace of God in a unique manner. During the 72 hours, God will meet you where you are in your relationship in order to bring you closer to Him.
When I reflect and encounter an Emmaus event, I am reminded of the church in Acts 2:42-47, “The Fellowship of Believers”.
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
Will you stand on the faith of Christ, and add to the church that gift, the one in which the Holy Spirit empowers you with? If so….Let’s take a walk!
