Dear Emmaus Community,

In consideration of the health and well being of everyone involved over the weekend and to maintain the integrity of the Emmaus experience, it has been decided to postpone the Fall Walks scheduled for this September.

Please continue to stay connected to your reunion groups and remain in prayer for our community and our world during this time.

The Board remains sensitive to the status of the ongoing COVID-19 and how it affects the Emmaus experience and will re-schedule walks as soon as it is safely appropriate to do so.

Thank you for your continued faithfulness to our community!

Emmaus Board

A Journey with Christ

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 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.

β€œFor 25 years I was a Sunday-only Christian, but my Emmaus walk showed me that going to church is not enough. We must also BE the church. Now I live out my Christian faith everyday in many ways.”

A message from the Community Lay Director,

Happy 2020!

Thinking back to 2000, we all were in anticipation of what the New Year would hold because of Y2K.. I remember my first walk the same way being full of anticipation and full of joy when I left the camp and overjoyed at the thoughts of coming back in service to the community.

I hope you find yourself in anticipation of serving and of mentoring candidates for the upcoming walks. If we put our joy in a box on a shelf no one never gets to see first hand how much our lives have been impacted by the experience. My thoughts for all of us in 2020 to let our joy shine, mentor and be active in the backgrounds.

Gatherings are the second Saturday of every month with the exception of April this year since there is a walk taking place.Walk 191 led by Carol Bown, April 23-26 and Walk 192 led by Bruce Muncy April 30-May 3

Prayerfully hoping to see everyone on Feb. 8th, Gathering at Thrasher United Methodist Church. Potluck, singing, fellowship and Holy Communion.

DeColores,

Sharon Amos
Lay Director
