News from Our Community Lay Director

Daniel Jones Walk to Emmaus #15 Table of Mark

We’ve all sung these words: De Colores, the diamond will sparkle when brought to the light! And though we laugh when we sing this strange song, its words are so true. In fact, you are reading these words today because the diamond within you now freely sparkles in the gracious light of Jesus. God has so blessed us!

This past weekend our Teams began their Training for our November Walks; previewing their Talks, remembering the harmonies of Sing Alleluia to the Lord, sharing once more the unique joy of Community – the true joy of Emmaus.

Is there someone in your Sunday congregation, in your Small Group, who needs the deep assurance of the Walk to Emmaus?

Having trouble explaining the power of the Emmaus weekend? Great news! We now have a moving, impactful, professional video explaining The Walk to Emmaus. This video is available to the public so anyone can access it anytime here on our website.
