Northeast Louisiana Walk to Emmaus

While they were walking and discussing, Jesus, himself, came near and walked with them. – Luke 24:15

The Gospel of Luke relates the story of the risen Christ appearing to two men who were going along the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus.  Two friends were walking together, sharing their deepest concerns. The risen Christ joined them and explained the scriptures as they walked, how it was ordained that Christ would suffer and so enter His glory.  This experience on the road was a heart-warming experience, as the risen Christ walked and talked with them. The illuminating climax of the experience was when Christ took bread and said the blessing, then broke it and gave it to them.  The two had their eyes opened, they recognized Him as the risen Christ, and they rushed back to Jerusalem to tell the others. (Luke 24:13-35)

The Walk to Emmaus is an opportunity for you to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers over the course of 72 hours. It is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders.
