After nearly 16 years as the pastor of Emmanuel United Church of Christ, Pastor Nansi Hawkins retired as of January 31, 2020. We are working on updating our website with new pictures and content, but in the meantime, we would like to introduce you to Pastor Leanne Rose who became our Interim Pastor in March.
I am so very excited to be called to support you during your time of transition. I come to you most recently from Plymouth Church on the east side of Milwaukee, but I was raised, trained, and served in The United Methodist Church. I grew up in Menomonee Falls, but this area is not new to me: my grandmother lived in Delafield by the firehouse for many years and my aunt and uncle lived in Wales.
I graduated from UW-Oshkosh and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and, although it has taken me a bit longer than I had hoped to get here, my call to ministry has been long, persistent, and evolving, as I think all calls are. I am humbled that this call has its roots in the UCC and that it has led us to ministry together. I look forward to our time to get to know each other, to learn from each other, and to grow in who God is calling each of us and Emmanuel to be.
