The congregation constructed a building in 1892 on the northeast corner of the intersection of N. Springfield Ave. and Iowa St.
In 1911 Emmaus merged into Bethlehem Lutheran, which constructed a new building at Springfield & Iowa in 1912. In 1925 Bethlehem merged with St. Paul English Lutheran and Our Savior Lutheran to form United Lutheran. In 1957 United moved to Oak Park, Ill.
