God is so good and He gave us the Holy Spirit to be with us. We are here in Sweden. We are from Finland and we are having a nice time experiencing the pouring out of the Holy Spirit. Be happy and full of love towards the Lord. Desire more of God. Let His blessings cover you and learn to experience God more and more. In Jesus name,thanks be to God and may He richly bless you I pray - Keijo Sweden
In the years of the sixties and seventies the Emanuel Church was a place to go from New Jersey to meet friends from Brazil, be part of weddings celebrations etc etc and to hear the Word of GOD being preached. Many good memories are still with us. As none-members we were always welcomed and received with great joy and friendliness. May God continue blessing HIS church and may HIS word continue to be preached loud and clear. In HIS love Hela and Ernie Meyer-Pflug
I was the first person to be baptized in the new Immanuel Baptist Church, in Woodside, NY. It was on New Years Eve and the baptismal tank was at the new church building, and the water was not heated. The women carried hot water from the kitchen, but it did not help. Assaf Hussman was the pastor and he preached in the German language. I remember that evening well (it was very cold) and I've lived for the Lord ever since. I am now a member of the Mennonite Church and living in Ohio.

Immanuel Church will always have a special place in our hearts, it was there that my husband and I met, my parents and I were members and attended there for many years. We were also married in the church and had the reception in the very room that I saw today on Facebook. We have wonderful memories of that ministry and are delighted by the fact that the good news is still being preached and the love of Jesus being shared. Keep up the good work!!!
We visited Immanuel Church on Sunday, December 23 after being away for 6 years! We were so impressed by the amazing Christmas musical performance and so touched by the connections we made with people of the congregation in such a short time! We loved meeting with old friends who have been faithful members, and especially meeting such interesting and spiritually mature new people. We're praying for your congregation- its obvious that God is present in your fellowship.
Beautiful site. We can remember old times. My wife Vera and I, immigrated from Brazil to the US in 1965, immediatelly we became members at Immanuel Church, at Immanuel we were at home.. We were members until 1973, when we returned to our Brazil. We'll never forget the beautiful and blesset time we had in this church.
I enjoyed hearing from you, Wolfgang. My dad, Pedro (Uli) Janzen was part of that group. Looking back I can see that God used that group because the German Brazilians had one foot in the South American culture. They paved the way for the acceptance of other cultures. The biggest challenge for an Ethnic Church is to transition to reach communities outside of their own. Today, our church is both racially and ethnically diverse truly representing the community in our neighborhood. God Bless - Michael
I was a member of Immanuel from 1963 - 1971. A few years earlier we had some 50 Brazilians coming and still we had two sermons , one in German and the other at 6 PM in English.We all had a very blessed time with Rev. Assaf Husmann. We'll never forget.God bless you all.
i want to join :( but i'm in the Philippines.
What a great initiative. Congratulations members of Immanuel Church, I hope to be there soon to receive all the warmth and friendship.
Praise the Lord!
love the site !
