History of Mark:
"Immanuel Evangelical and Reformed Church A church at Holstein. The institution was organized about 1848 as a result of the efforts of Joseph Riegen. The congregation first worshipped in a log building which burned in 1855, but a new church was erected the same year. In 1884 this structure was torn down and replaced by a new brick building. During its early history, it was generally known as the Evangelical Church, a descriptive name. Since 1936 when the Evangelical and Reformed Churches united, it has been called the Immanuel Evangelical and Reformed Church. Immanuel is a Biblical name for Christ and means "God be with us" (cf. MAT. 1:23). It is also called the German Church for the nationality of most of its congregation." ~ History of St. Charles, pages 1011, 1046, 1047
