The Walk to Emmaus is a very special Christian retreat.  Many of our church family have attended and we would recommend it for anyone interested in deepening their faith.  Men’s and women’s “walks” are scheduled all year round, but our church is part of the Koinonia Emmaus Community that sponsors two of the walks, one for men and one for women, at Mt. Wesley in Kerrville.  Men’s walk #1838, with lay director Jim Rhoades, will take place April 28 through May 1, and the Women’s walk #1858 with lay director Connie Norton, will take place October 20-23.  Applications for being a “pilgrim” on these walks, or any walk, are located in the church entranceway, or online.

For those who have already attended a walk, it’s time to start thinking about being part of a team.  Applications for being a team member can be found online, or can be obtained from the church office.   Team selection is right around the corner for the women’s walk in October.  Get your applications in.  It is also time to start recruiting pilgrims to attend the men’s walk in the spring.

The next Koinonia Emmaus gathering will be here at Hondo First UMC, on Friday evening February 12.  Singing begins at 7:30 PM.  If you would like more information about Walk to Emmaus, call the church office or pick up a brochure from the information rack in the church entranceway.
