Important Update from the Mid Michigan Emmaus Board

Greetings Emmaus Community!
On behalf of the Mid Michigan Emmaus Board of Directors, we sincerely hope and pray that you have been well and blessed through these extraordinary times these past several months.

Even though all Walks in 2020 until now had to be cancelled, the Mid Michigan Board of Directors have been focused on enriching and strengthening our community through reunion group activities, gatherings and newsletter updates.

After much prayer, the board has decided to hold a set of Men's and Women's weekend in 2022. Because of schedules, the Men's weekend will be held in August and the Women's will be held in September. Please see the Calendar tab for specific information

Please be assured that any Walks scheduled, will follow all the State of Michigan and CDC recommended procedures regarding in person gatherings.
In the event that the State of Michigan puts in place restrictions on in person gatherings or if the Board of Directors feels there is significant risk to the pilgrims or team members, the walk will be rescheduled, and any fees paid by pilgrims or team members will be refunded.

We encourage you to continue to meet and strengthen each other through reunion groups and gatherings. If you are not able to meet in person, please consider meeting virtually on line, if possible.

Please continue to pray for our Emmaus Community, for the Board of Directors, for Upper Room, and Emmaus international. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Board.

Remember, God Loves You and So Do We!
Mid Michigan Emmaus Board of Directors

The Mid-Michigan Emmaus Community was chartered by the international Emmaus movement in 1996. Prior to that our "territory" was a part of Detroit Conference Emmaus, which has since been renamed Emmaus of Southeast Michigan. Our territory includes the eastern half of Michigan's lower peninsula from approximately Saginaw northward to Gaylord and roughly corresponds to the geography of the southern two-thirds of the Saginaw Bay District of the United Methodist Church.

Walk to Emmaus is an ecumenical spiritual growth and leadership development program based on the Cursillo® method. It is administered by The Upper Room, an agency of the United Methodist Church. Check the Walk to Emmaus web site for additional information. The name of the program comes from the story recounted in Luke about two people traveling from Jerusalem to the town of Emmaus on the first Easter morning. They were joined by a mysterious third man who opened up the Scriptures to them and eventually revealed Himself to be the risen Lord.

Mid-Michigan Emmaus Gatherings

Mid-Michigan Emmaus is targeting to hold Gatherings once per quarter. The model is for the location to move around the geographic area so that one Gathering should be close to you at least once a year.  
Please check the calendar tab for updates as our plans develop.
