The New-Ark Area Emmaus Community is made up of persons who have attended a Walk to Emmaus, Face to Face Encounter, Chrysalis Flight, or equivalent spiritual renewal experience. The Community's Walks and Gatherings are hosted by First United Methodist Church in Newark, Ohio.
Community gatherings, open to all, are held in the First United Methodist Church Sanctuary. Gatherings are generally held on the fourth Tuesday of each month (an exception being December, when it is held on the second Tuesday; click here for this year's schedule). Gatherings are preceded by Sponsorship Training at 6 PM, and begin with music at 6:45 PM.
Under our 'About' menu, we have provided background information for the Walk to Emmaus, Face to Face, and Chrysalis programs. The New-Ark Area Emmaus Community offers Walk to Emmaus and Face to Face Encounter events; Chrysalis Flight events are offered in Gahanna by Chrysalis C.A.R.E.S. (with oversight by the Greater Columbus Emmaus Community).
