The Walk to Emmaus

"Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus.  While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them...their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight.  They said to each other, 'Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?' "

The Gospel of Luke 24:13, 15, 31-32

Community Chairperson Message

Greetings HNEC Fourth Day!

I can hardly believe that school has started and Fall is officially just around the corner.  It seems like Summer goes by faster and faster every year!

There are spots available for both Men’s Walk #117 on 9/21/23-9/24/23 and Women’s Walk #118 on 9/28/23-10/1/23.  If you’re thinking about sponsoring someone now is the perfect time to get the applications in!  The sooner we know your Pilgrim is coming the easier it is for the teams to plan and train for the best weekend possible, so send your applications in now by contacting the Registrar Alyssa Macaluso at registrar@hnec.org.  If you have not yet started the application process you can find the forms here.

In addition to sponsoring a Pilgrim, here are some other ways you can be involved in Walks 117 and 118:


  • Sign up for the prayer vigils for Men’s Walk #117 and Women’s Walk #118
  • Make agape
  • Sign up here to help with the Thursday Snack Supper, Saturday Agape Dinner, or Candlelight Setup
  • Come to Candlelight on Saturday
  • Welcome our new Fourth Day during Closing on Sunday

Make sure you mark October 14th on your calendar as our next Gathering at Faith Bible Church in The Woodlands.  Gatherings are a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and invite new ones that may be interested in learning more about Walk to Emmaus.  This will be an important meeting not just because we will be highlighting our new Fourth Day members, but also because we will be voting on new board members for the upcoming year.  Keep an eye on our website and your email for more information on board elections.

Always remember that prayer is one of the most impactful ways you can support your Community.  Pray that those who have not yet gone on a Walk will be led to sign up; pray for our leadership that they are led by wisdom and love in all decisions; and pray for our community, that they feel their hearts burn within them as they continue in their Fourth Day.  I look forward to gathering together with you in a few short weeks.

De Colores,

Laura McMeans HNEC Community Lay Director
