The tone of our weekly corporate gathering is very relaxed.  But though casual, our Sunday evenings together are intentionally and liturgically shaped. 

This time always includes artful, dialogical worship: sitting in the round, honest conversation, confession and absolution, and celebrating an inclusive, open table Eucharist. Often, we employ local musicians and visual artists whose voices shape our time together. Always, we value incorporating diverse practices and voices into our communal dialogue around God at work in scripture and our world.

On any given week, we may also eat together, dive into faith exploration, engage in a book study, go in depth with a missional partner, or pray and create art together. 

Feel free to reach out (admin@emmausway.net) for more information, as well as with any questions you have about joining our gatherings.

We meet every Sunday from 4:00-5:30pm in the education building of Elizabeth St. United Methodist Church (1209 N. Elizabeth St). 

You are welcome to park in the lot near the community garden or the one at the intersection of Elizabeth and Trinity. 

Enter at the back door near the playground, or use the ADA accessible entrance that faces the courtyard/Trinity Ave and take the elevator down to the first floor.
