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 Walk to Emmaus experience begins with the prayerful discernment and invitation from a sponsor. After one accepts this invitation they complete an application. The Emmaus leaders prayerfully consider each applicant and in God’s time, the person is invited to attend a three-day experience of New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle.
Following the three-day experience, participants are joined in small groups to support each other in their ongoing walk with Christ.
 
 
 
 
Seventy two hour renewal experience designed to deepen your faith and equip you to be a better leader in local church.
 
 
Please consider signing up and
joining us in this wonderful journey!
 
Following weekends are open this Fall:
for brochure & application.
*Someone will sponsor you and take

Through the formational process of accountable discipleship in small groups and participation in the Emmaus community, each participant’s individual gifts and servant-leadership skills are developed for use in the local church and its mission. Participants are encouraged to find ways to live out their individual call to discipleship in their home, church, and community.
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. Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others.

[We] were reminded that Emmaus® is not an "emotional bubble-bath." It is essentially a journey with Jesus Christ. The main focus is not how wonderfully close we have grown with each other, but how much closer we are to Christ and how much more effective we are as servants in his church. -Clergyman from Illinois

Please take a few minutes to read some of the stories of our members journeys as well as others on their walk to Emmaus in the atrium of the keheley center and in the narthex of the sanctuary.
