BACKGROUND NOTE



Families of German Lutherans in northwestern Jefferson County were served by churches in Tobias and Hoag until they organized their own congregation at Daykin in 1891. The first resident pastor arrived from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, in 1893. The following year the congregation joined the Missouri Synod of the Lutheran Church. The fist church building was constructed on seven acres of land donated by Fred Jarchow. In 1910 a new building was dedicated and the original church served the congregation for a variety of purposes, including that of a day school, until it was sold in 1950. During the 1920s services began to be conducted in the English language, and the use of German was slowly abandoned in worship.
