Welcome to Crossroads Emmaus!

What is the Walk to Emmaus?

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.

If you have more questions about the Walk to Emmaus and are considering participation, please contact the church office.  Both our church secretary and Pastor have attended the Walk to Emmaus or they can direct you to other church members who can visit with you about the experinece. 

Once you participate in a weekend Walk to Emmaus, you have the opportunity to continue the Christian connection with others.  The name of our area's regular meetings is Crossroads Emmaus Reunion Groups.  This is a special time to come together for a time of prayer and share with others.
