We are all on a spiritual path. Whether you are curious about God, just coming back to faith, or a believer your entire life, to be a disciple of Jesus means to be continually growing closer to Jesus and each other. Everything we do at EUMC is linked to the Disciple’s path.

Location: DaySpring Episcopal Conference Center, Ellenton, FL
Cost: $225 which covers lodging & food – sponsorships available
Deadline to register: TBA
The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders.
The experience begins with a 72 hour short course in Christianity, comprised of 15 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 program is wrapped in prayer and meditation, special times of worship, and daily celebrations of Holy Communion.
Following the three day course, Emmaus leaders organize participants into small groups that meet regularly to maintain and expand the Emmaus Community. 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.
