||The History of Immanuel|
The services were conducted in this vicinity in 1883 by the Rev. H.P. Durborg of Elmwood, WI. At first they were held in private homes, but within two years the members realized that they needed a church. On May 11, 1885, the new log church was ready for its first service.During the following year, 1886, the organization took place and a constitution was adopted. Since 1900 the congregation has been affiliated with the Wisconsin Synod.
A new church was built in 1899; which suffered lightning damaged before its completion.
When the church building was raised for the construction of a basement beneath it, a severe windstorm tipped the church while it was only supported by jacks. This building served the members of Immanuel until 1992. In May of 1992 the church was sold, moved north on County D and turned into a home. The members built a new church using the windows, lights, organ and some furniture from the old church. There are three parts to the new church, dedicated in August of 1993. The sanctuary [worship area] seats 180, has a choir section and will house the new Allen Organ which will be installed in February of 2009. The fellowship hall also serves as our Sunday School and Men's Bible Class room. We also have the administrative wing which includes the library, offices and restrooms.
Pastor Wayne Hilgendorf has served Immanuel since October 1991. Immanuel has members living in 17 zip codes. We currently number 270 confirmed members and 330 souls. Immanuel is a member of the St. Croix Lutheran High School Association and also a member of Camp Croix. Many things have changed over the years at Immanuel, church buildings and parsonages, people and the size of the property but one thing remains constant - the Word of our God. This Word is summed up in the Law and Gospel. The Law shows us our sin and need for a Savior. The Gospel shows us that Savior Jesus.
When we look back at our history, we are amazed at how much God has blessed us with His Word and Sacraments, with people willing to serve Him and each other, with material blessings that have enabled us to carry out ministry, with men and women who have gone on to serve the church in the public ministry and especially, His love and forgiveness.
