Work A Walk
If you have already completed a Walk, you can join us to work a walk. Please click this ‘Work’ button to submit an on-line form. A new on-line application is required for each and every walk. If you submitted a work request for the 2019 walk that was cancelled, that work request is not valid since it’s been over one years. So please fill out a new work request form for 2021. Get your ‘Work Request Applications’ in before the team meetings!
We hope to hold a walk in Spring 2022, and are brainstorming ways to keep the community together, active, and up-to-date in the meantime.
- Come gather with friends from your Emmaus experience in a safe, virtual setting.
- Please invite friends who might be future pilgrims!
- We will sing a few songs, share in communion and share with each other about our 4th Days.
- The Gathering is from 5 – 6 pm Saturday, September 18th.
- Our Gatherings are via Zoom Call. Zoom links are always in our newsletters and reminders.
If you are not getting the newsletter, or have other questions: Contact us via our contact page on this web site.
Our Next Walk Will Be In 2022 at the earliest
Sponsor A Pilgrim
Sponsorship is one of the most significant parts of The Walk to Emmaus. Sponsorship requires far-reaching prayer, attentive thought, inviting people by name to attend the walk, and watchful planning and follow-through of their Fourth Day. Remember that the walk is not for everyone.
The Upper Room Handbook on Emmaus lists three aspects of good sponsorship: it is the first act of agape before a Walk ever begins, it under-girds the whole weekend with sacrificial love on behalf of each pilgrim, and after the walk your follow-up is crucial for the foundation for a healthy, effective Emmaus Movement, which results in the renewal of the church. Please watch the sponsorship video in step 1 and read the rules on that page as well. Step 2 has the questions that the sponsor should give to their pilgrim and receive back so that the sponsor can fill out the pilgrim application on behalf of the pilgrim. (Do not ask the pilgrim to fill out the electronic form, else the pilgrim will show up as the sponsor in the database, and the sponsor should lead this entire process anyway. Thanks!)
