The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to help people experience God’s overwhelming grace in their lives, strengthen faith in Jesus Christ and equip people to live and serve in the example of Jesus Christ. Following the model of Christ’s servanthood, it encourages followers of Jesus to become “a servant of all.”
The Walk to Emmaus is a retreat that begins on Thursday evenings and concludes Sunday night. Men and women attend separate weekends. The retreat focuses on experiencing God’s grace, growing in faith and relationship to Jesus through spiritual disciplines, and equipping attendees to be the body of Christ for the world. Throughout the weekend are opportunities for reflection and discussion in small groups. The course is wrapped in prayer and meditation, including special times of worship and daily celebration of Holy Communion.
A significant part of the follow up to the Walk to Emmaus are Reunion Groups, a weekly small group where participants support and encourage one another to live out one’s faith. Participants seek to be an example of Jesus in the world and to influence the people in their family, job, neighborhood and community for Jesus Christ.
Both Walk to Emmaus retreat and the Reunion groups strengthen and renew participants as disciples of Jesus Christ and active members of the body of Christ in mission to the world.
