On the hiskyemmaus.com website, you can click on the Calendar tab at the top of the home page to check the Walk and Chrysalis dates for the current year. The walks for 2014 are as follows:
Please note that applications for pilgrims to attend all walks and flights are due on the Thursday, one week prior to the walk/flight starting.
The service begins at Saturday evening for every walk. A worship service, including communion, is conducted with the community before the pilgrims come to the tabernacle.
The pilgrims arrive in the tabernacle at Sunday afternoon, and the closing service begins when all are seated. It is best to arrive early enough to welcome (clap in) the pilgrims as they arrive.
Anyone who has previously attended a Walk or a Chrysalis may sponsor someone else to attend a walk or Chrysalis. The registration forms are located to the left under “Forms”.
Anyone interested in attending a Walk or Chrysalis who does not already have someone to sponsor them may contact any Board member (contact information listed on the website or above). We will put you in touch with someone to sponsor you.
Upon receiving and confirming your registration, the Registrar will ensure your pilgrim's name is emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org so that it is posted on the website under the walk in which your pilgrim is registed to attend. This can be found by going to the Calendar page and then clicking on the specific walk. Starting about six-weeks prior to the walk, the Registrar will send you a letter acknowledging that your pilgrim is on the walk, with additional information for you as a sponsor. If there is any problem with your pilgrim’s registration, the Registrar will also contact you.
Dress for the weekend is entirely casual – jeans, slacks, sweats, shorts, etc. Just be comfortable so you can relax and enjoy the activities. For a Chrysalis, you should bring one change of clothes that is a little more dressy for the Saturday evening dinner.
Bring your own toiletry items, towels and bedding (sheets and blankets or sleeping bag and pillow). Each room has two twin beds and a queen sized bed.
There will be opportunity to purchase books during the WEEKEND. You may want to bring cash or a check if you decide to purchase some of them.
To become a team member on any Emmaus walk or Chrysalis flight (Music Team, Conference Room Team, Servant/Outside Team), you can contact any board member (listed under the “Board” tab on the website, or as listed above under “Who do I contact”), particularly members of the Team Selection Committee, and let them know you are interested in serving. To assist in any committee area, you can contact the Committee Chairperson.
Click on the "Reunion Groups" link and you will see listings for Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed Reunion Groups. Below those categories, there is a form provided which you may complete and return to email@example.com, to get your reunion group listed. If there are changes in your reunion group membership, or if your reunion group is no longer active, that information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can keep the listing as current as possible.
A Prayer Vigil poster is prepared for each walk. You can
sign up for a time slot on each vigil by either
Traditionally, each item of gift agape is given to both the pilgrims and to the team members. If a walk is full, there are 36 pilgrims. There are usually between 30-34 team members, so the best thing to do is always send 72 pieces of each item of gift agape.
Any labels on the gifts should not include individual names, but the name of your reunion group or church works fine. Remember, these are to be anonymous gifts of love to these pilgrims and servants.
Any leftover items will be brought to the next two Community meetings and you can retrieve those to be added to your contributions for subsequent walks. If they are not picked up after the second Community meeting, they are added to other leftovers and given around Christmastime to the children at High Sky Children’s Ranch.
Again, on the website, under the Calendar tab for each walk, the gift and food agape drop-off locations will be listed prior to each walk, as well as contact information for the agape leaders on each walk.
The 2014 Community meetings are held at on the Fourth Tuesday of each month at Wilshire
Park Baptist Church, 801 S Bentwood Dr.,
