The board has created a brand new Emmaus Pilgrim Application. If you have an older version of the application please THROW THEM AWAY! They are inconsistent and missing fields for very important information!
Any submissions of the old version of the application will be promptly returned with a copy of the new application. The application needs to be mailed in by the sponser to NCWV Emmause P.O. Box 83 Fairmont WV 26555. Please note that for the Spring Walk's the Men's application is due by April 3 and the Women's application is due by April 10.

Welcome new community members and old! It's never too early to mark your calendar for Emmaus and Chrysalis events! These events follow the same schedule every time we have a Emmaus Walk or Chrysalis/Journey Flight. Be sure to become familiar with the proceedings and get involved! Gathering is always the 3rd Saturday of the month.
****Camp will need to be set-up for all 3 weekends on Thursday April 10th at Camp Towles. Set-up crew will get started with this HUGE task at 10:00AM. If anyone has some free time and would like to help, please let Emily Galan (304-695-3824) or Lou Ortenzio (304-677-8880) know. If you can only come out to help for a few hours we would still love to see you. Setting up the camp is a HUGE job and takes all day to complete.****
Boy's and Girl's Chrysalis and Chrysalis Journey Flights
Men's Walk to Emmaus
Women's Walk to Emmaus
Your presence is a powerful ministry. The Spirit of God dwells within His people! Be sure to attend weekend events such as Send-Off, Sponsors' Hour, Candlelight, and Closing to support the community and be a blessing as you have been blessed!
Men's and Women's Send Off and Sponsors' Hour - Pilgrims begin to arrive, with their sponsors, at the camp around 6:30pm. Everyone is asked to gather in the dining hall around 7pm so the Send Off activities may begin! Community members are encouraged to be present to show support for the team and the new Pilgrims. This is immediately followed by Sponsors' Hour in the chapel, where each participant will be prayed for by name. You can attend Sponsors' Hour to lift the weekend up in prayer even if you have not sponsored anyone.
Chrysalis and Chrysalis Journey Send off and Sponsors' Hour - The Chrysalis and Chrysalis Journey Flight Send Off and Sponsors' Hour are identical to those of the Men's and Women's Weekends, except the catepillars will arrive as early as 7am and the community will gather in the dining hall around 8am.
Candlelight - The community gathers in the dining hall or around the camp fire (weather permitting) at 8pm. As we wait for the Pilgrims and Team to arrive (9pm) we will participate in worship and communion, and pray over the individual names of those participating in the weekend. Community members are urged to leave immediately after the Candlelight ceremony takes place so that we do not interfere with the rest of the evening's events.
Candlelight for Chrysalis/Journey is the same.
Closing - The community will gather in the talk room at 3pm, or as soon as the Pilgrims and Team leave to read their letters in the chapel. We will then set up for the Closing Service. There will be a time of worship held prior to the arrival of the Pilgrims and Team. When they arrive (4pm) the Closing Service will begin! Each Pilgrim will have an opportunity to speak. Therefore, the length of this event varies based on the number of Pilgrims who attended the weekend, and how many of them are clergy!
Closing for Chrysalis/Journey is the same.
All of these events require some set up and tear down. If you would like to lend a helping hand, show up early or stay late!
