Walks and Gatherings

Good news.  We are hoping to have an in-person Gathering in June and Walks possibly in October.  Stay tuned for further details. 

Upper Room Ministries Announces Two New Programs

Village Encounter

Be part of the inaugural event! As we continue to provide opportunities for ongoing Christian spiritual formation, the Emmaus Ministries International Office invites all communities to partner with us for the launch of our newest online offering, Village Encounter.

Village Encounter provides a digital space for adults to experience God’s grace in transformative ways. This new offering seeks to renew Christians in their faith and to further inspire, challenge, and equip them for Christian leadership. The online experience begins with an invitation to journey with the risen Lord and continues, through its six sessions, to move participants to deeper levels of commitment as disciples of Christ.

In addition to the six sessions, the participants will meet in small groups that encourage their personal Christian growth and spur on Christian action. Ultimately, as is the case with all other Emmaus Ministries “graduates,” participants will have the opportunity to take part in the activities of their local Emmaus Ministries community.

In preparations for the inaugural event in May 2022, the International Office is developing a team of clergypersons and lay leaders who will partner in ministry with Village Encounter participants. We are grateful for the almost 50 volunteer team members!

Now we also would like to invite existing communities to be part of this ground-breaking experience by sponsoring participants at a cost of $40 per person for the entire event. You can register for the inaugural online experience here. 

The Emmaus Ministries Village Encounter schedule will be as follows:

  • Orientation – Evening of Thursday, May 5
  • Session 1 – Evening of Friday, May 6
  • Session 2 – Morning of Saturday, May 7
  • Session 3 – Evening of Friday, May 13
  • Session 4 – Morning Saturday, May 14
  • Session 5 – Evening of Friday, May 20
  • Session 6 – Morning of Saturday, May 21

All sessions will average between three or four hours in length.

Day Four Restore

Day Four Restore is a new one-day retreat designed to refresh the spirit and renew the commitment of those who have attended an Emmaus Ministries event or that of another Fourth Day ministry. Day Four Restore is held online and from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (CST). There will be a $40 fee to participate. 

Day Four Restore is designed to be held annually and its thematic content to be cycled in a three-year rotation. This one-day retreat supports the spiritual growth of church leaders and empowers those leaders to expand their ministries beyond the Fourth Day community. 

The next Day Four Restore will be happening soon, so watch for an announcement as to when it will be. 

Thank You Community

Thank you so much for your generosity.  As a community you have donated $4288.00 towards the purchase of cots to replace the old foam rubber mattresses.  In addition, the donor who pledged to match everything up to $5000.00 has donated the entire $5000.00 giving us a total of $9288.00 to purchase the cots.  That should be enough to purchase the 75 cots we initially wanted to buy and allow us to get a few extra.  With the Walks being cancelled, we will probably delay that purchase. 

To be honest, we never expected the community to respond so positively since the COVID pandemic has prohibited us from having Walks or Gatherings.  Pioneer Country Emmaus is blessed to have such a tremendous community.  We look forward to more “normal” times when we can once again have Walks and in-person Gatherings.
