The New-Ark Area Emmaus Community meets monthly for for Worship, Holy Communion, and Fellowship. These Monthly Gatherings are held at Newark First United Methodist Church, 88 N. 5th St., Newark, Ohio.
The Gatherings are generally held on the 4th Tuesday of the month, with our December Gathering being held on the second Tuesday of the month. There may be other exceptions as well to accommodate our Walk schedule and the church calendar; the schedule for the Monthly Gatherings is listed below.
Gatherings (except December's) are preceded by Sponsorship Training in the Chapel at 6 PM; and begin with community singing in the Sanctuary at 6:45 PM.
Everyone is welcome to attend a Monthly Gathering. You needn't have attended an Emmaus event (that is, a Walk to Emmaus, Face to Face Encounter, or Chrysalis Flight event) in order to attend a Monthly Gathering.
Childcare for children 2-5 years old is available during the service. Parents are welcome to keep infants with them in the service, and Bible activity bags are available to use in the service for children ages 6-12.
Bring your potluck dish and table service if you would like to join us for a fellowship meal afterwards.
