Emo Christian Reformed Church is a small but diverse, family-oriented community of believers located in the Rainy River District of Northwestern Ontario. Emo is uniquely situated across the river from the United States, midway between Winnipeg, Manitoba and Thunder Bay, Ontario and only a 30-minute drive from Lake of the Woods where people come from all over the world to experience the beauty of its lakes and the fishing and hunting the area provides. The area’s economy is primarily based on agriculture, logging, mining and tourism. Emo itself has a unique K-12 public school that has a strong working relationship with the district Christian Parents Association.
In the last few years, our church population has seen a surge in births. We have an active Sunday School, Coffee Break, Gems and Cadet program. Because of our church’s design, we host many concerts, weddings, and funerals which bring a variety of people through our doors.
Our church members can be found in all walks of life from business owners and trades to teachers and nurses, with everything in between and beyond. Our members are active volunteers in the community and several members sit on the town council.
We are seeking a full-time pastor who is willing to get to know us, who preaches a solid biblical message that applies to our daily walk with God, and who loves encouraging people of all ages in their faith.
