General note

Immanuel Lutheran Church was organized on May 4, 1910. Worship services were held in a rented building on East Lincoln until the congregation built its church on Oswald and Doud Streets. A parish hall was built in 1922 and the first parsonage was purchased in 1948. In 1950 growth dictated the purchase of additional property. Groundbreaking ceremonies for a new church were held in 1954 and construction began the following year. In 1957 the church was dedicated, having been built with much volunteer labor from the congregation. In the summer of 1964 further construction took place when the parish education unit was built. A new parsonage was built in 1967. For many years, Immanuel was a part of a multiple parish, which included congregations in Canby, Needy, Monitor, and Mckee. Nidaros at Monitor worked with Immanuel for many years, but in 1957 Monitor was discontinued as a congregation and most of its members joined Immanuel.
