Deepen your relationship with Jesus through the Walk to Emmaus. A three-day journey for Christians of any denomination, the Walk to Emmaus is designed to strengthen the faith of Christian people and, through their discipleship, strengthen their families, their congregations, and our world. The Walk to Emmaus offers today’s disciples an opportunity to rediscover Christ’s presence in their lives, to gain fresh understanding of God’s transforming grace, and to form friendships that foster faith and support spiritual maturity.
Christians of any denomination, race, or ethnic background are welcome at Walk to Emmaus. To find out more, watch this video. If you’d like to attend, check out upcoming walk dates and find a sponsor on the Events page.
To the Community:
It is with much prayer and consideration, and with heavy hearts, that we as a board have decided to cancel these Spring Walks to Emmaus. We didn’t have the minimum number of 20 pilgrims per walk as required by the Upper Room, and therefore are unable to hold these walks. Thank you for your understanding of this decision and for your continued support of the Louisville Emmaus Community. We are always accepting and collecting applications for our walks year-round. We encourage each and every one of you to attend our monthly gatherings on the second Fridays of each month at 7:27pm. More information about these community gatherings is available under “Events” on our website, LouisvilleEmmaus.com as well as the locations. Please understand this was a difficult decision to make and was not made lightly, but we believe this is the right and the responsible decision for our community. In order for the Louisville Emmaus Walks to continue, we need to see more community involvement and support and are excited as we prepare for these fall walks coming up in October. Please be in prayerful and intentional consideration of people you can invite and sponsor for this fall walk and send in your applications as soon as possible. The final deadline for applications for the fall is August 15th. There is more information available on our website and we will continue to communicate openly with this community via our prayer chain and especially at our monthly gatherings. Thank you for your understanding, your prayers, and your continued involvement. Des Colores and Fly with Christ.
