The Walk to Emmaus is open to Christians of all denominations. Emmaus weekends or "Walks" are held throughout the United States and the world. The Walk to Emmaus is a 3-day, exciting Christian experience that renews Christian discipleship and takes a look at Christianity as a lifestyle.
The long weekend centers around singing, prayer and worship with lots of personal fellowship and small group discussion. Click on the pictures below for more information on each community.
Chrysalis - Youth Walk to Emmaus. Before it becomes a butterfly, a caterpillar goes through a growth stage during which it is called a "chrysalis." On the surface it may not look like much is happening, but the delicate chrysalis process changes the fuzzy caterpillar into an awesome butterfly with wings of intricate designs and intense colors. The chrysalis process symbolizes how Christ can transform you into something beyond your dreams. It happens when you grow beyond yourself, opening your life to Jesus' power and love.
