The Senior Council was elected: M. Hemmrich and H. W. Rincker.
The board members were W. Rust and W. Dieckmann.

The first step (work) was the discussion on the church´s building.
The contract for the building of the church was offered M. W. Bruns
with a price of $1030.00, included the paintings. The St. Paul's
Community gave them some church benches as a gift, the residual benches
were produced by Immanuel Community in the same form.

The Lay of Foundation was already at July 17 for the first church building;
on September 10 the little community inaugurated happily this first church
house.  On the same day the first pastor of this community, Mr. G. Schick, was
introduced. The ground properties of this community did lay in the 12th
street, where today the Jesuite-College exists. At the other side of the
12th street bloomed the most beautiful water roses and the children floated
with their selfmade rafts on the water. One church building check in amount
of $600.00 was donated and subscribed by the members and exist till now as
