Members of the Emanuel Evangelical Church of Tigardville


A black and white photograph shows members of the Emanuel Evangelical Church of Tigardville as they pose for a group picture outside on an cloudy day. The group is arranged in three rows--some sitting, some standing--on the grass. A wooded hillside is behind them in the distance. A leaf covered branch enters the picture frame in the upper left corner. To the right of the group can be seen a small wood structure with a wooden ladder leaning it. The gentleman sitting on the first chair on the left side of the front row is Friedrick Johann Brandt who helped organize the building of a church in 1885-1886 and taught the Senior Men's Bible Class. The Emanuel Evangelical Church was originally located at the east end of Bull Mountain Road, along the northbound lanes of present day SW Pacific Highway. The German Language was used for morning services and Sunday School. The Evangelical Church exists today as the Trinity Evangelical Church, located on 121st Avenue in Tigard.
