SPIRITUAL RETREAT

The Walk to Emmaus seeks to inspire, challenge, and equip leaders for Christian action in their homes, places of work, and communities. 

On an Emmaus Weekend, you will sing, reflect, pray, worship, learn, share Holy Communion, participate in small groups, 

experience God's grace in community and in the world, and understand Christian love in action.


"They asked each other, were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the scriptures to us?" - Luke 24:32

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.


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.
