GOOD NEWS! The New-Ark Area Emmaus Community will host its first-in-a-while, in-person Gathering THIS MONTH (June 29). PLEASE ATTEND IF POSSIBLE as Community leadership elections will be held at this Gathering. See the JUNE 2021 GATHERING page for more information.
The New-Ark Area Emmaus Community is made up of persons who have attended an Emmaus Ministries or equivalent spiritual renewal experience. The Community is hosted by First United Methodist Church in Newark, Ohio.
Persons who attended an Emmaus or equivalent experience elsewhere may become members of New-Ark Area Emmaus by participating in its activities, and by registering their contact information with the Community.
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 is December, when it is held on the second Tuesday). Gatherings are preceded by Sponsorship Training at 6 PM, and begin with music at 6:45 PM.
Under our 'About Emmaus' menu, there is information about the Emmaus Ministries' 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).
