Highlights from our October Gathering
Jeremy Liles blessed us with his wonderful musical talent by leading worship. His closing of Amazing Grace was absolutely beautiful. Jeremy was also our Fourth Day speaker and shared that he was very thankful for Emmaus and our community. For him the weekend meant no distractions. He was able to totally focus on God during the weekend. He said there are two things Satan wants to keep us from. God's Word and Prayer. It is up to us to stay focused and make time for Christ in our lives.
In her Communion meditation, Pastor Pam Connolly also shared that we need to be thankful for our many blessings. In the midst of the storms in our lives and the problems that surround us, Christ is always there with blessings.
Please sponsor a pilgrim today! We still have openings for the November Emmaus Walk.
A Minimum number of pilgrims needs to be reached at both 30 days prior to, and 1 week prior to an Emmaus Walk for the weekend to take place. Please submit your applications in a timely manner, preferrably 30 days prior to a weekend. Thank you.

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 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.
