GSMEC Monthly Gatherings

The Gatherings in 2019 will be moved to the 2nd Saturday of Every Month (Unless a change is noted)

The calendar this year has quite a few holidays on the 3rd Saturday of the month so we will move our gatherings this year to the 2nd Saturday.
We will also start rotating our gathering locations to different areas of our community so if you would like to have a gathering at your church or have an idea for a place to host a gathering let us know.


The Gathering is the monthly reunion of all members of the Emmaus Communities and their guests.  You may attend if you have been on a Walk or not.  Following our walk to Emmaus, we are encouraged to see every day as an ongoing walk to Emmaus in the companionship of the risen Christ.  The Monthly Gathering is for us a time to share our Resurrection stories of how God became real to us in the past month on the road with a friend, through a stranger, through scripture, prayer, in the breaking of bread, or in sharing of our love.

Each month we gather together for a meal (potluck style, you can bring a main dish, a side item or a dessert to share with the community.  Drinks are provided)

We will follow this time of eating and community with Singing and Prayer, Fourth day talks (sharing witness to God’s presence in your life and to developments in your walk with the Risen Lord), and Holy Communion.
