The Walk to Emmaus and Chrysalis
The Walk to Emmaus is an ecumenical program of
the Upper Room of the United Methodist Church. It is designed to prepare the laity for leadership
in their local churches. Through a three-day concentrated course in Christianity,
Pilgrims are exposed to the personal witness of other Christians, both laity and clergy,
who are actively involved in the program and desire to share their faith journey.
Chrysalis is a similar program for
teens aged 15 years and older. Peers who have been through the program and are likewise
willing to share their faith journey expose caterpillars to contemporary witness.
Twenty-four members of Our Redeemer's
have experienced either the Walk to Emmaus or a Chrysalis Flight.
We have active reunion groups for those of you who have been on the Walk,
a Chrysalis Flight or a Crusio. Three of our members presently serve on the
Northern Illinois Chrysalis Board of Directors. We are a congregation
which actively supports the Emmaus and Chrysalis programs.
