The Walk to Emmaus

Men's Walk - Oct 5-8

Women's Walk - Oct 19-22

A Journey with Christ

The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development 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."

While they were talking and discussing, 

Jesus himself came near and walked with them. - Luke 24:15

The walk to Emmaus is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers.

The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with the prayerful discernment and invitation from a sponsor.  After one accepts this invitation they complete an application.  The Emmaus leaders prayerfully consider each applicant and in God’s time, the person is invited to attend a three-day experience of New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle.

The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work.  

Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others.

Applications are due no later than September 1st.

Both walks will be hosted at

Vancouver United Methodist Church.

Contact Cynthia Younger at this link if you are interested in this program or you just want to lear a little bit more about future opportunities to take this walk.

East Woods  Book Club

Meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 9:00 a.m.

Carol Domench will lead this new small group, meeting every second and fourth Sunday over the summer at 9:00 a.m. in the Willow Room.

The first meeting will give us a chance to define our purpose and begin a reading list.

We hope to engage in thoughtful discussions that resonate with us individually and affirm our faith, find new ideas we many not have considered before, and welcome all perspectives.  

If you enjoy reading, exploring a little more deeply into questions we face as Christians and having lively discussions, come join in.
