Emmaus Project’s ‘study for service’ April 6-May 11

The Emmaus Project will begin a six-week “Study for Service” on Wednesday, April 6, featuring Max Lucado’s newest book, Outlive Your Life. Darrell Johnson, chair of the organization, will lead the study.

The Emmaus Project is a ministry cooperative that engages volunteers from several churches in and near Milam County. The group provides home-cooked meals to about 90 area residents on the first, third and fifth Saturdays, supports the Kairos prison ministry at a unit in Madison County, and does light home-repair projects such as wheelchair ramps.

Since its inception late in 2009, Emmaus has served more than 2,500 meals.

“We try to keep ministry simple and fun,” said volunteer Brad Owens. “A lot of Christians want to help hurting people in this town, but it’s hard to know where to start. That’s what we try to do—give people a place to start, scripturally and practically. Outlive Your Life and the study and fellowship should support that.”

The study will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays from April 6 through May 11 at the Emmaus building, 901 East Belton Street in Rockdale. A light supper will be provided each week.

Emmaus can be reached at emmaus. rockdale@gmail.com, through its Facebook site, Emmaus Project Rockdale, or at 512- 429-0362.
