While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and walked with them. Luke 24:15
What happens during an Emmaus Weekend?
Participates will enjoy three days of singing, learning, laughing, worshiping, reflecting, praying and discussing in small groups. The discussions center around talks given by laity and clergy. These talks present the theme of God’s grace, how that grace comes alive in the Christian community, how you can live a life of grace, and how you bring that grace to others. You will have the opportunity to participate in the daily celebration of Holy Communion and to experience God’s grace through the prayers and acts of anonymous service offered by the Emmaus community. You will leave with an experience of Christian love in action that will equip you for new levels of grace-filled living and your heart for service to others.
