Coming to Western Montana each spring: The Walk to Emmaus...

What is Emmaus?

The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to develop servant-leadership skills for use in the local church and to strengthen the discipleship of church people by the Upper Room. The Walk is not an evangelistic outreach to the non-believer. It is intended to inspire, challenge, and equip local church members for Christian action - in their homes, churches, workplaces, and communities. The men and women walks will be held separate weekends at the Presbyterian Glacier Conference Center on Flathead Lake. You will enjoy 72 busy hours of singing, learning, laughing, praying, worshiping, and participating in small groups.

Why have segregated events for men and women? Aside from being able to have the space to revisit our own individual relationship with God and to express ourselves as individuals, having separate events for men and for women offers single and married participants freedom for expression and sharing that some may not feel appropriate in the company of the opposite sex. This arrangement also gives men an opportunity to express natural emotion—something that many are reluctant to do in mixed company.

Some important concepts to remember about Emmaus:

What to Bring to Camp
You will need to bring your own bedding, (the beds are king twin), personal care items and medications,
towel, flashlight, umbrella and if you wish, your favorite Bible.

We recommend comfortable clothes and shoes. Jeans are just fine although Sunday you may want to wear slacks for the closing.
The weather at this time of year can be unpredictable, layers are advised, and a rain coat may be needed for walks outside.
