This denomination had had a church in the county seat for several years, and, although representatives of the Church are found all over the county wherever there are Germans, yet no congregation was ever organized in the county, out of Petersburg, until two years ago, when Prof. Winnekin, of the Lutheran Theological Seminary, located at Springfield, organized a congregation in the vicinity of Tallula, and they have since erected a neat, though cheap house of worship. There is, also, a large community of German Lutherans in the neighborhood of Greenview, though they have not, as yet, been formally organized. In Petersburg, the Church owns a small brick church house, and on adjoining lots are a schoolhouse and parsonage. These are all free from debt. Rev. Robert Collier is at present, and has been for more than a year past, their Pastor. The membership in this congregation is large, and they have regular services each Sabbath.
