Our Story

The organization that forms the Heartland of Texas Emmaus Community has been around for a long time. But we were not always called the Heartland of Texas, you see on September 12, 1991, the Living Waters Emmaus Community of Marble Falls held their first Walk to Emmaus #207 for women. On September 23, 1993 the Soaring Eagles Emmaus Community of Burnet, held their first Walk to Emmaus #317 for women. The Living Waters Emmaus Community held the first Men’s Walk to Emmaus #352 on March 17, 1994. The two communities joined forces in 1996 to begin sponsoring walks as one team serving our precious Lord, Jesus Christ. CLICK HERE to view our Walk History

The churches that our members attend are scattered far and wide North and West of the Austin Texas area. To make attending a monthly gathering more convenient for our members, we hold one gathering in the North on the 2nd Monday of every month and a second gathering in the South on the 4th Monday of every month. The gathering in the North rotates locations between Burnet, Liberty Hill, and Leander. The gathering in the South is normally in Marble Falls. The exact dates, times, and locations can be found in the Events Calendar.

Our Board of Directors holds their monthly meeting on the 1st Monday of every month. Check the Events Calendar to confirm the date, time, and location. You are welcome to attend our board meetings.

On the Walk to Emmaus

27 Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

28 By this time they were nearing Emmaus and the end of their journey. Jesus acted as if he were going on, 29 but they begged him, “Stay the night with us, since it is getting late.” So he went home with them. 30 As they sat down to eat, he took the bread and blessed it. Then he broke it and gave it to them. 31 Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared!

32 They said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”
