NOTE! Due to the recent change in the coronavirus level to Level 4, the New-Ark Area Emmaus Community's October Virtual Gathering has been canceled. Please check back for further information in the upcoming months or see the VIRTUAL 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).
