- The Walk to Emmaus is a three-day experience which takes a New Testament look at Christianity as a lifestyle. The Walk begins Thursday evening and concludes Sunday evening.
- The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, and places of work.
- The Walk to Emmaus is grounded theologically and institutionally in The Upper Room ministry of the United Methodist Church. However, The Walk to Emmaus is ecumenical.
- The Walk to Emmaus is inspired by the Gospel of St. Luke (Luke 24:13-35) wherein the risen Christ appeared to two men who were walking on the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus.
WHO SHOULD GO ON A WALK TO EMMAUS?
1. Are you looking for ways to strengthen your spiritual life?
2. Do you have unanswered questions about prayer, study, and sharing your faith?
3. Do you understand that being a Christian involves responsibility?
4. Are you willing to dedicate your everyday life to God in an ongoing manner?
5. Do you hold positions of responsibility in the church and in the world?
If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you are encouraged to visit with an LTUMC member who has been on a Walk to Emmaus. So that you know who we are we wear colorful lanyards with a cross on the first Sunday of each month. You can also contact Bob Duplantis, Emmaus Coordinator for LTUMC at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 627-8882.
