The Walk to Emmaus

Greater Rose Area Community Emmaus

The G.R.A.C.E community in the Tyler and surrounding area holds a men and women's walk in the spring and the fall.
Check the above link for dates and locations. If you would like to attend contact the church office to learn more and talk to a sponsor.
The Gospel of St. Luke relates the story of the risen Christ appearing to two who were going along the road from
Jerusalem to Emmaus. Two friends were walking together sharing their hearts deepest concerns.  The risen Christ
joined them and explained the scriptures as they walked, how it was ordained that Christ should 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, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to them.
The two had their eyes opened and they recognized him as the risen Christ. They rushed back to Jerusalem to tell the
others. (Luke 24:13-35)
The above story provides the image for Emmaus, an Upper Room program that calls forth and renews Christian
discipleship. The Walk to Emmaus is designed for Christians who are active church members and their leaders who
want to rekindle their faith or renew their vision. Emmaus is for people who want to grow spiritually and mature as
disciples of Jesus Christ, who want to build up the church in love and contribute to its ministry.
