Highland County Emmaus Gathering scheduled for June 30


The Highland County Emmaus Gathering will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 30 at the Hillsboro United Methodist Church.

The gathering will have a speaker, special music and prayers for joys and concerns as well as a meditation before Holy Communion.

The Walk to Emmaus is an ecumenical three-day weekend to train church leaders. Emmaus has grown into a worldwide movement. The Upper Room of the UMC in Nashville, Tenn. governs it. If you have ever been curious about the Walk to Emmaus, come and find out what everyone has been talking about.

Everyone is invited, not just those who have attended an Emmaus weekend. Several hundred people from Highland County have attended the Walk to Emmaus. If you have not attended lately, you are welcomed back. Plan on coming out and sharing music, worship, food and fellowship.

Wear nametags and bring some food to share. But if you do not have time to prepare anything, do not let it stop you from attending. There is always plenty anyway.
