50th Anniversary

 

Emmaus was recognized and called into covenant on May 15, 1966, by the Potomac Association of the UCC. The Reverend Thomas Cox, its founding pastor, and 66 charter members originally met for worship at St. Thomas Episcopal Church on Lewinsville Road in McLean, Virginia, until the Fellowship Hall (serving as worship space for six years) and the Education Building were completed and dedicated in 1970. Emmaus' present sanctuary was built and dedicated in 1990.
