Cluster meetings start at 6:30 PM with a potluck meal followed by a short meeting with introductions, follow-up opportunities, Alabama Emmaus updates, and any cluster business.  The meeting is followed by singing, worship, and communion – and everything is wrapped in prayer and fellowship. 


Meeting Schedule: 
We meet on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm at one of three rotating area churches – except when an Alabama Emmaus walk begins on a second Thursday, when we move the meeting to the third Thursday (so that those sponsoring pilgrims on the walk don’t miss the meeting). 


Meeting Locations: 
We rotate the location of our meetings through three area churches: Alabaster First UMC, The Church at Cahaba Bend, and Helena Methodist Church.  You can check out the schedule of churches through the end of the year below.
