About Emanuel Lutheran Church in Corona
Emanuel German Evangelical Lutheran Church was organized in 1887. The society first met on Willow Street (now 46th Avenue) until a church was built that same year on Oak Street (now 47th Avenue). In 1903, the congregation opened their present building on the corner of Sycamore Avenue and High Street (now 104th Street and 37th Drive). Originally a German-speaking church, the congregation now offers services in Spanish and Korean.
