The Emmaus Weekend

The Walk to Emmaus begins with a 72-hour short course in Christianity, comprised of fifteen talks by lay and clergy volunteers on the themes of God's grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship and what it means to be a church.

A Walk typically begins on a Thursday evening and ends on a Sunday evening. Men and women attend separate weekends. Husbands and wives are strongly encouraged to attend Walks on consecutive weekends. The Walk to Emmaus is administered through the Upper Room ministry of the United Methodist Church. The Walk to Emmaus is, however ecumenical and is open to Christians from all denominations.
