Archives and Collections

Immanuel Presbyterian Church has corporate minutes; organizational records of governing bodies, committees, and other subgroups; and membership records. In the church's library are publications dealing with the history of the church, which is over one hundred years old and was known as a leader in the neighborhood, the city, and the Presbyterian community during the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. Immanuel Presbyterian Church is now focusing on being more responsive to the needs of the community and on creating bonds between the church and the surrounding area. For example, the church conducts citizenship classes and participates in various collaborative efforts with other community development organizations and the Wilshire Chamber of Commerce. The congregation presently comprises Hispanics from Central and South America and Mexico, Anglos, Filipinos, Koreans, and African Americans.
