Walk to Emmaus
Who should go to Emmaus? Emmaus is for the development of Christian leaders who: Wish to strengthen their spiritual lives, may have unanswered questions about prayer, study and sharing their faith, and Christian's who are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God and wish to rekindle their faith. Emmaus is a 72-hour experience where you will meet with Jesus, walk with Him, talk with Him, and forever be changed by Him. If you are interested in attending a Walk talk to Mary White, Mary Nixon or Nancy Krantz.
Walk Date Where
Men's Walk #90 10/03 - 10/06 Gilmer
Women's Walk #91 10/10 - 10/13 Gilmer
Reunion Emmaus Meetings
Saturday Monthly meeting at 10:00 for both Men and Women.
Following the three-day Walk the Emmaus experience, participants are joined in small groups to support each other in their ongoing walk with Christ. Participants are encouraged to find ways to live out their individual call to discipleship in their home, church, and community.
A church choir is a small-group within the church for faith formation. When we sing together, a bond is created that unites us. Because we meet together once a week to do work for the glory of God and benefit neighbor, taking care of each other is not an option, it’s a responsibility. We are charged with ensuring the choir enacts the Word and, "Christ’s love has gathered us into one" . We do this as we sing faith each week.
