EMMAUS ROAD CHURCH 6719 Cedar Lake Road

From the church’s web site:


As a church plant of Westwood Community Church in Chanhassen, Emmaus Road was birthed on Easter Sunday 2005. Unlike most church plants which move farther out to newer, growing suburbs, Emmaus chose to be a voice for the risen Savior in Hopkins, St. Louis Park and surrounding areas. Starting with 50 adults, a lot of the first year was spent getting organized and seeking God’s vision for the church.


2006 – We saw a doubling in size and affiliation with the Evangelical Covenant Church.


July 2006 – We held our first “24″, our annual event of 24 hours of prayer. 24 has become a highlight of our year.


2007 – We moved to Eisenhower community center. This enabled us to have more time each Sunday to meet and connect as a community.


August 2008 – Craig Case, our founding pastor decided to leave Emmaus.


February 2009 – The congregation voted to begin the search for a new pastor by voting on the current search committee.


June 2009 – Due to remodeling of Eisenhower, we moved to Hopkins High School.


July 2009 – We moved into a more permanent home, to a church building owned by Ascension Lutheran in St. Louis Park.


April 2010 – We welcomed our new pastor, Kevin Johnson, to Emmaus.


December 2012 – We returned to where it all started… Hopkins Center for the Arts. We meet at 10am on Sundays.
