Walk to Emmaus
  • Emmaus Walk #21 Information

    Tampa Bay Area Emmaus Gathering and Fall Walk Information

    As you look forward to a wonderful summer vacation, don’t forget our Walks in the Fall.  We already have 10 women and 5 men registered for Walk #21, and we are hoping to completely fill out both weekends.
    This year, the women’s walk be from September 28 through October 1, while the men’s walk will be October 5-8.  Note that we have reversed the order of the walks this time, to give the men an extra week to register.
    The Fall season will kick-off with our Pre-Walk Gathering on Saturday, August 5th.  We are asking that everyone bring a covered dish to share at the Brandon Boys and Girls Club (just North of New Hope UMC in Brandon).  Our potluck will start at 5:00 PM, with a worship program to follow.
    Have an enjoyable summer, and we will see everyone on August 5th.

  • Emmaus for Teenager’s and Young Adults

    Chrysalis “Flights” (for 10th through 12th graders) and “Journeys” (for young adults, ages 19-24) are three-day events. This three-day spiritual renewal time provides an opportunity for them to learn more about faith, to experience Christian love and support, and to make new faith commitments. The point is to inspire, challenge and equip them for a closer friendship with Christ and for Christian action at home, church, school, and community.

  • Welcome

    While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and walked with them. -Luke 24:15

    The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The program’s approach seriously considers the model of Christ’s servanthood and encourages Christ’s disciples to act in ways appropriate to being “a servant of all.”

    The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with a 72-hour short course in Christianity, comprised of fifteen talks by lay and clergy on the themes of God’s grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church. The course is wrapped in prayer and meditation, special times of worship and daily celebration of Holy Communion. The “Emmaus community,” made up of those who have attended an Emmaus weekend, support the 72-hour experience with a prayer vigil, by preparing and serving meals, and other acts of love and self-giving. The Emmaus Walk typically begins Thursday evening and concludes Sunday evening. Men and women attend separate weekends.

    During and after the three days, Emmaus leaders encourage participants to meet regularly in small groups. The members of the small groups challenge and support one another in faithful living. Participants seek to Christianize their environments of family, job, and community through the ministry of their congregations. The three-day Emmaus experience and follow-up groups strengthen and renew Christian people as disciples of Jesus Christ and as active members of the body of Christ in mission to the world.
