The Emmaus Reunion Group is a small accountability group of two to six persons who have usuallyparticipated in the three-day Walk to Emmaus and who want to continue their pursuit of a life lived wholly in the grace of God. These small follow-up groups help pilgrims translate the message conveyed on the Walk to Emmaus weekend into a daily walk with Christ. With the regular support of a few faithful friends, the gift of God's love in Jesus Christ becomes a lifestyle of Christian discipleship.Reunion Groups meet at regular times, usually weekly for an hour. The meeting consists of persons' sharing the highs and lows of their lives during the past week. Members listen to one another, celebrate the grace of God in each person's life, and reinforce each one's core commitment to living in union with Christ in all facets of daily life. Members express that reinforcement through gentle accountability, encouragement, and support of one's stated discipline and plans.Reunion groups provide a natural launching pad for mission in the community. Some groups, where members relate to the same church, find a shared ministry within their congregations. Other groups choose to serve together in the kitchen for an Emmaus weekend or make it their mission to set up facilities for Emmaus weekends. Many groups spend time making table agape, creating banners, and writing general agape letters to support their own and other Walks to Emmaus. Some Emmaus groups take on ministries in their local communities.As valuable as group activities and a sense of common mission can be, Emmaus groups must remember that these efforts are “extracurricular.“ Always make time for the primary work of the group -- reviewing the service sheet and reflecting on Christ's presence and call.A listing of Reunion Groups in our Community is below.
