WHAT IS EMMAUS?
Walk to Emmaus is a Christian spiritual renewal and formation experience that begins with a three-day retreat. A kind of short course in Christianity which includes: presentations on fundamental principals of Christianity; prayer; fun fellowship; spirit filled worship; great music and yes, great food. 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. Chrysalis “Flights” are similar in format to Walk To Emmaus but are specially designed for youth (ages 15-18). Interested in going?…ask your pastor or someone from your church who has been on an Emmaus Walk about the application process… or go to the web site of the Emmaus or Chrysalis Community nearest to you. It’s that simple. There are multiple Emmaus and Chrysalis Communities in/near Harbor District (see list, locations and dates of Walks and Flights below below). Both laity and clergy members can go on the Walk To Emmaus.
