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.
