We are all on a spiritual path. Whether you are curious about God, just coming back to faith, or a believer your entire life, to be a disciple of Jesus means to be continually growing closer to Jesus and each other. Everything we do at EMC is linked to the Disciple’s path.

“Five Marks of a Methodist:
The Fruit of the Living Spirit”

Dates: Wednesdays, May 31-June 28
Time: 6:00-7:00 pm
Location: Room 100
Facilitated by: Joyce Doyle
Cost: $16 for 2 books, Scholarships are available

“This brief book, and it’s accompanying workbook, provide a meditation on these five characteristics: loving God, rejoicing in God, giving thanks, praying constantly, and loving others. You are encouraged to prayerfully apply them to your journey with Jesus. If you are part of the worldwide Methodist or Wesleyan family, these five marks will grant a greater knowledge and appreciation for why and how you follow Jesus. If you are located in another part of the body of Christ, you can emerge with a solid foundation to keep your spiritual house standing strong. Christians marked by these five habits, when taken together have character.”

Women’s Walk: September 14-17, 2023
Location: DaySpring Episcopal Conference Center, Ellenton, FL
Cost: $225 which covers lodging & food – sponsorships available

The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. 

The experience begins with a 72 hour short course in Christianity, comprised of 15 talks by lay and clergy on the themes of God’s Grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship and what it means to be the church.  The program is wrapped in prayer and meditation, special times of worship, and daily celebrations of Holy Communion.

Following the three day course, Emmaus leaders organize participants into small groups that meet regularly to maintain and expand the Emmaus Community.  The members of the small groups challenge and support one another in faithful living. Participants seek to Christianize their environments of family, job and community through the ministry of their congregations.
