Grow Your Faith
Welcome to Emmaus of Southeast Michigan
What is Emmaus?
“Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”
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.
