It is with regret that the Emmaus board has decided to postpone the Fall 2022 Men's Walk to Emmaus until the spring of 2023 due to lack of pilgrims. The strain in community participation caused by the pandemic continues to have a crippling affect with sponsoring pilgrims for particularly the Men's Walk. The Women's Walk for Fall 2022 will be held as planned and I look forward to seeing you at Candlelight.
Please keep the Southeast Emmaus program in your prayers and ask God to lead you to sponsor a friend to the Men's Walk next spring.
God loves you and so do I.

What is Emmaus?
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.
