The Walk to Emmaus®
Crossroads Emmaus Community is a 501(c)(3) non-profit made up of people from the South Texas counties of Calhoun, Dewitt, Goliad, Jackson, Matagorda, Victoria and Wharton, created to build disciples of Christ and local church leaders through the Walk to Emmaus® ministry.
The Walk to Emmaus® is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The program’s approach seriously considers the model of Christ’s servanthood and encourages Christ’s disciples to act in ways appropriate to being “a servant to all”.
Who should go to a Walk to Emmaus?
Emmaus is open to members of any Christian denomination. Emmaus is for the development of Christain leaders who:
- are members of a local church
- have a desire to strengthen their spiritual lives
- may have unanswered questions about their faith
- understand that being a Christian involves responsibility
- are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God in an ongoing manner
What happens on the Emmaus weekend?
You will enjoy three days singing, learning, laughing, worshiping, reflecting, praying and participating in small groups. Discussions center around fifteen talks given by laity and clergy. These talks present the theme of God’s grace, how that grace comes alive in Christian community, and how it expresses itself in this world.
You will discover how grace is real in your life, how you live a life of grace, and bring grace to others. You will have the opportunity to participate in the daily celebration of Holy Communion and to understand more fully the body of Christ.
You will experience God’s grace through the prayers and acts of anonymous service offered by the Emmaus community. You will experience Christian love in action that will equip you for new levels of grade-filled service and leadership!
The Walk to Emmaus® gets its name from the story in Luke 24:13-35, which provides the central image for the three-day experience and follow-up. Luke tells the story of that first Easter afternoon when the risen Christ appeared to the two disciples who were walking together along the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus. Like Christians and churches who are blinded by the preoccupation with their own immediate difficulties, these two disciples’ sadness and hopelessness seemed to prevent them from seeing God’s redemptive purposes in things that had happened.
