    • Emmanuel Lutheran Church

      Begun: 1844

      The first church was built in 1844 on the future cemetery site when Rev. F.A. Peifer was the pastor. A new frame church was built at another site in 1851 during the pastorate of Rev. Immanuel Wurster (1851-1853) of the Canada Synod, and consecrated on January 18, 1852. The congregation at that time was called "Emmanuel's Congregation." Pastors who immediately followed Rev. Wurster were Revs. Charles Friedrich Diehl (1853-1855), Frederick T. Feysel (1855) and W.B. Ralby (1858).

      Another new church, built in 1876, was struck by lightning in 1915 and completely destroyed. The present church was begun in 1915, on property belonging to August Knipfel, which was exchanged by him for title to the former church site. The church was completed in 1916; an addition was built in 1962. The cornerstone reads: "Ev. Luth. Emmanuels Gemeinder 1915".

      Pastor Henry Koch of First St. Paul's, the Missouri Synod church in Wellesley, accepted a call to Emmanuel in 1867 - to serve the Petersburg congregation along with Wellesley and St. John's, Poole. Pastor Koch was followed by Revs. Adam Ernst (1869), F. Dubpernell (1870-1876), and J. Kirmis (1876-1895). Emmanuel remained with Wellesley and Poole until the late 1970s when it became an independent congregation with the Rev. Allan Scharlach as pastor.1a
