After much consideration and prayer, the Board of Directors has decided that the fall walks for men and women should be postponed. With the current impact of the significant increases of infections in Middle Tennessee and the close quarters environment of an Emmaus Walk, it became apparent that the risk was too great at this time. Hopefully conditions will be better as time for the spring walks approach. Please continue to keep Emmaus in your prayers and promote the Emmaus Walks to others.
We want to thank all the wonderful men and women that were prepared to have these Fall Walks. They put in a great deal of time and effort preparing to serve and have truly been the hands and feet of Christ.
The Nashville Emmaus Board of Directors will continue to work in these coming months to advance the purpose of our walks. We welcome any volunteers interested in serving on the board, organizing reunion groups, preparing agape, and always we covet your prayers.

Nashville Emmaus Community
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 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 Link below will take you to The Upper Room Emmaus Website. There is a lot of very good information about the Walk to Emmaus as well as a video produced by The Upper Room/Walk to Emmaus. This video provides a good introduction to the Walk to Emmaus as well as testimonies and personal stories.

An adaptation of The Walk to Emmaus, Face to Face is specifically crafted to meet the needs and life-stages of older adults. The program seeks to invite men and women, ages 60 and older, to experience Jesus Christ through an 8-session journey over anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks – depending on the setting - covering subjects such as discipleship, mission, grief, and end-of-life issues. The highly flexible schedule allows participants the freedom to engage in structured Bible study and prayer in a church setting or other community space. Led by clergy and lay leaders, Face to Face strengthens and renews followers of Christ and bolsters the spiritual life of individuals, families, and congregations everywhere. Face to Face is open to members of any Christian denomination who want to strengthen their spiritual lives, discover answers to their questions about faith, and are open to understanding the responsibility of living a Christian lifestyle. Encounters in the Nashville and surrounding areas are currently being held twice a year at churches and retirement centers. Participation is open to all Christians 60 and above. Sponsors are helpful but not required for Face To Face. Pre-registration is required and participants must commit to attending all sessions.
