Being a part of a share group is a wonderful way to maintain the bonds of faith and fellowship in your heart from your weekend Walk to Emmaus. It is also a way for the brother and sisterhood of our Christian faith to be accountable in the service of our church, family and community.
The core of the share group can be pilgrims from previous walks and people who have never experienced a walk. This can also be a good way for people to get familiar with the Emmaus community before attending a walk. The Christ is Counting on You and Group Reunion card is the foundation of your share group meeting.
Below is a listing of various groups that meet around the area. I would be happy to connect you with any of these group leaders if you would like to learn more.
