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?

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!

Our 2nd spring gathering for 2023 was held on Saturday, May 20th at Northbrook UMC in Roswell. 
It was well attended by many new members of the Community from the Spring season!

Our next gathering will be held at Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church in Johns Creek, GA. on September 30th. We start gathering at 6:00 PM and the program will run from 6:30-9PM.  Child care will available until 9PM.

Our last gathering will be just after the conclusion of the 2023 Fall season at Hillside United Methodist Church in Woodstock, GA. on November 17th. We start gathering at 7:00 PM and the program will run from 7:30- 9PM.  Child care will available until 9PM.
