The purpose of Emmaus is to renew the church as a body of the risen Christ in the world through development of leaders and renewal of Christians as faithful, committed disciples of Jesus Christ. Emmaus enhances the spiritual lives of participants, deepens their discipleship, and rekindles their gifts as Christian leaders in their churches and communities. These aims are accompliished not only during the three-day Emmaus Walk but also through Fourth-Day efforts of participation in Group reunions and community Gatherings, sponsorship, prayer, support of other Walks, and service on support communities and on teams.

Persons whose spiritual lives are renewed and strengthened through Emmaus are called to share within their community the grace they recieve. They become leavening influences in their local churches and active participants in God's mission to the world. The purpose of Emmaus is not fully realized during the three days of the event itself but in the Fourth Day.

The Rainbows End Emmaus Community meets every 1st Tuesday of the month at First United Methodist Church. The address is 415 N. Lee Odessa, TX 79761.
