Leadership at Emmanuel
Our church is governed according to the rules of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and we have two leadership groups.
Session is a group of nine Ruling Elders elected by the congregation who are responsible for the day to day management of the church.
The nine elected member of the Board of Deacons are the primary compassionate outreach group for the congregation. They prepare communion, call on shut-ins, and host receptions following weddings, funerals, or memorial services. They also provide for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals and organize a children’s gift drive for a number of families in need from Audubon Elementary School, along with helping stock Audubon’s emergency clothing closet.
The Rev. Drew Peterson has accepted the offer from Emmanuel’s Session as our “Transitional Pastor” effective November 1, 2021. There are details to be worked out and we will keep everyone posted as plans become more specific. For now, let us all thank God and pray for our new pastor, Drew and his family.
Join us on this journey and help us all learn and be part of what is next in store for Emmanuel.
