Important Update from the Emmaus of Southeast Michigan Board
Greetings Emmaus Community!
On behalf of the Emmaus of Southeast Michigan Board of Directors, we sincerely hope and pray that you have been well and blessed through these extraordinary past several months.
Even though all Walks in 2020 had to be rescheduled, the Emmaus of SE Michigan Board has been very active this year and is currently planning for Men’s and Women’s Spring 2021 Walks in late April 2021. The Walks will follow all the State of Michigan recommended procedures regarding gatherings in place at the time of the walk.
In the event State of Michigan recommended procedures or if the Emmaus Board feels there is significant risk to the pilgrims or team members, the walk will be rescheduled, and any fees paid by pilgrims or team members will be refunded.
Details of the Spring 2021 Walks will follow soon. The Board has set February 13, 2021 as the date for making a final decision about possible rescheduling of Spring walks. A Walk to Emmaus can only be taken once so making the walk a quality experience for the pilgrims is of utmost importance.
Please continue to pray for your Pilgrim, for the team of Walks 188 & 189, and for the Emmaus board members as we move forward in hope and expectation for this Spring 2021 Walks to Emmaus. And please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Board with any questions or feedback.
In the Grace and Peace of Christ,
Your SE Michigan Emmaus Board of Directors

Your 2020 Emmaus of SE Michigan Board of Directors
The gospel of Luke (24:13-35) relates the story of the risen Christ appearing to two disciples who are walking along the road from Jerusalem to the town of Emmaus on the day of Resurrection. Upon arrival in the village of Emmaus, the disciples recognize Jesus in the breaking of the bread; they remember how their hearts had burned within them as they walked with him on the road.
We invite you to join in an inspirational three-day journey during which you meet Jesus as he is revealed to you through other Christians. On your Walk to Emmaus you will hear stories from scripture and the experience of presenters who address significant facets of God’s grace and Christian discipleship as well as experience New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle. It is a highly structured event designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them, their families, their congregations, and the world in which they live.
Emmaus is a partnership between laity and clergy toward the renewal of the church.
