Now that very day, two of them were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus and they were conversing about the things that occured. And it happened while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them...
What is Emmaus?
In the 24th chapter of his gospel, Luke tells the story of two travelers on a journey together to a city called Emmaus. Along the way they fall into step with a third traveler who listens to their story and shares in their conversation. This third traveler shares a perspective that is so life-giving that the two urge him to stay with them for dinner. And as they break bread together they realize - with amazement and joy - that the third traveler is Jesus Christ, risen from the dead!
We've taken "Emmaus" as the name for our community because this story absolutely captures our hearts.
We are building a new church community in Lincoln, California committed to sharing life and discovering Jesus.
