Walk To Emmaus: A Three-Day Spiritual Retreat

Here is a great video from an Emmaus community in Woodlands, Texas. It echoes the voices and sentiments of many of our own North Georgia family. Please take a moment to truly listen to the expressions of joy and thankfulness these “pilgrims” have for their Walk To Emmaus experience.

What is YOUR excuse for not going? Will you let it rob you of a wonderful blessing?

Upcoming Community Gatherings

One of the best ways to stay connected with your Emmaus community is to attend a Gathering. Whenever possible, Gatherings are held on a monthly basis at various churches throughout the North Georgia area. It is a great opportunity to refresh and renew your Emmaus experience. Additional gathering dates will be posted when they are confirmed. All Emmaus, Chrysalis and Face To Face communities are welcome!

Date & Location

November 22 @7:30 to 9 pm – Hillside UMC

Our last gathering for 2019 will be held on November 22, 2019 at Hillside United Methodist Church in Woodstock.  We will begin to gather starting at 7pm, with the program running from 7:30pm-9:00pm and it is for all 3 of our Communities – Walk to Emmaus, Face to Face and Chrysalis.  Child care is available until 9pm.
