Owner description: This historic church (275 years old in 2013) hosts tens of thousands of visitors each year for special tours,concerts, and worship services. We are the first and largest Lutheran church in the state. This pioneer congregation help founded the American Sunday School movement(Francis Scott Key taught here), the first national Lutheran synod in America (General Synod met here first time in 1820), the first American Lutheran seminary(Gettysburg), and the first Lutheran english magazine in world (Lutheran Intelligencer). ELC was also a hospital site following the Battle of Antietam and cared for 1,000 wounded soldiers. The congregation is known for generous hospitality even today. Gifted with great organ and acoustic make this great location for annual Frederick Fine Art series free to public. Church Tours are given on the 1st Saturday of every month from April through October. We have a variety of programs for youth, young adults, and adults. Please visit our website to find out more about our programs, events, and special activities.
