Welcome to the Lowcountry Emmaus Community of South Carolina!
Keeping in touch:
- We use contact information in the Upper Room's Ministry Manager
to get in touch with potential team members as we prepare for walks.
Newsletters are posted on this website each month.
A notice is distributed by email through MailChimp when a new issue is available.
Log into Ministry Manager to update your address or reunion group information here
If you are having trouble accessing Ministry Manager or have not been receiving the newsletter,
please contact the board member in charge of records or the newsletter
(as listed in the most recent newsletter). In particular, if you update your email address,
please let the newsletter editor know in addition to updating Ministry Manager.
To attend a walk, you will need to have a sponsor who has previously attended.
If you are interested in attending and don't know anyone who might sponsor you,
contact any member of the board (listed in the newsletter),
and we will help you get in touch with someone from your church or your community who can help you.
Sponsors: You can download an application to sponsor a pilgrim on an upcoming walk.
We are currenly waiting to see when we will be able to schedule our next walks,
which have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Walks are held at
Camp Summers and Manget
[map] in Cameron,
Sendoff and Closing are usually held at
Jericho United Methodist Church
[map] just east of Cameron. Sendoff is at 6:30 PM on Thursday evening. Closing is at 4:30 PM on Sunday.
(Sendoff and closing services are for community members and current walk participants only.)
Community members are also invited to the candlelight service on Saturday during the walks at 8:00 PM
to pray for all those who are taking part on the weekend. The candlelight service is usually at
Providence United Methodist Church
on US 176 less than two miles west of I-95.
There is no child care at sendoff, closing, or the candlelight service.
Please arrange for someone to care for your children at home when attending these events.
Gatherings, open to everyone, are normally held monthly on the third Friday
except when this would conflict with Walk schedules or Easter weekend.
At this time, we are monitoring the guidance concerning gathering for worship
to determine when we will be able to resume meeting in person for Gatherings.
Community Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the activities of the
community. You can find the names and contact information for board members in
most issues of the newsletter.
