Walk To Emmaus: A Three-Day Spiritual Retreat

Here is a great video from the Upper Room. It echoes the voices and sentiments of many of our own North Georgia family. Please take a moment to listen to the story, and hear 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?

There are 3 options under email preferences:

  • My Community allows you to receive emails directly from your Community and could include messages such as Community prayer concerns, Team Service opportunities, Reunion Groups, and more.
