Highlights from our July Gathering
Beth Bernhard shared from her heart during her Fourth Day Talk and opened with her life verse from Jeremiah 29:11-14b. "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you," says the Lord. "I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes."
Beth shared that the love she received during her Emmaus Walk helped her to love herself. She continued by saying, "When you are incapable of loving yourself, you can't love anyone else." Following her weekend she quit running from Christ and ran to Him for a life of forgiveness and service. She inspired each of us to remember that the Lord created us for a big purpose and that He has plans for us just as Jeremiah 29:11 boldly states.

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.
