Walk to Emmaus
The Walk to Emmaus is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal that begins with a three-day course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed through other believers. On the walk participants enjoy singing, learning, laughing, worshiping, reflecting, praying and participating in small groups. The objective is to inspire, challenge, and equip church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work.

Elder Spirituality Circle
Elder Circles are small interactive groups of elders designed to explore the spiritual dimensions of aging–ways of living life more consciously, more joyfully, and more compassionately; to engage in life’s mending and repair work; to come to terms with mortality, to create a spiritual legacy and to explore opportunities for mentoring and service as we witness our own and each others’ personal transformations in moving from older to elder, from age-ing to sage-ing.
