Upper Room Ministries

The Upper Room

The Upper Room® is a global ministry dedicated to supporting the spiritual life of Christians seeking to know and experience God more fully. It encompasses many programs, ranging from the publication of a Daily Devotional to leadership training to deeply immersive transformation experiences for people seeking a closer relationship with God. Learn more here.

Here at First United Methodist Church of Lockhart, we have active groups and participation with the following programs supported by The Upper Room.


The Walk to Emmaus Program

Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The program's approach seriously considers the model of Christ's servanthood and encourages Christ's disciples to act in ways appropriate to being "a servant of all." Learn more about our local group, or watch an informative video here.

Chrysalis Youth Weekend

Chrysalis is essentially the same program as The Walk to Emmaus for youth seeking a deeper experience of God's grace and Christian love in action. This fun-filled weekend of fellowship, action, and learning will equip you for levels of service and leadership you may never have thought possible before. Learn more here, and contact the church office to find out when the next Chrysalis Weekend will be.
