Kanawha Valley Emmaus Community


The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The program's approach seriously considers the model of Christ's servanthood and encourages Christ's disciples to act in ways appropriate to being "a servant of all."

KVEC News and Updates

Upcoming Events

Please remember our upcoming Emmaus Gatherings on August 9th and September 13th @ 6:30PM @ Trinity UMC.  In September we will be having a very special guest from the United Methodist Church Annual Conference!  We are very excited to announce that Bishop Steiner-Ball will be our guest in September and hope to show her how our community loves one another.  I pray to see her grow with our community and help us get even more ecumenical for our true purpose for God's Kingdom. Bring a Guest!!!!

Upcoming KVEC Walks 

The KVEC community needs to commit to sponsor at least 12 pilgrims within 12 weeks of the walk dates.  This will ensure that we can move forward in preparing the fall walks and shows respect the time and resources of our community and walk team members.  Please sponsor a pilgrim to ensure our walks continue.
