The Walk to Emmaus is a global ecumenical ministry guided by The Upper Room of the Board of Discipleship of the United Methodist Church. The purpose of Emmaus is to develop leaders for the church. The Walk to Emmaus is a 72-hour experience of spiritual renewal and formation. You will enjoy three busy days of singing, learning, laughing, praying, worshiping and participation in small groups. Discussions center around fifteen talks given by laity and clergy. The theme of each talk is God’s grace, how that grace comes alive in the Christian Community, and how it expresses itself in the world. You’ll also discover how grace is real in your life, how you live a life of grace, and bring grace to others. You will experience God’s grace through the prayers and acts of anonymous service offered by the Emmaus Community. Emmaus will inspire, challenge, and equip participants for Christian action in their homes, churches and places of work. Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others.
