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.

“Great Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

A must walk by and if your lucky just to stop for a service. Forget the religion and take in your own personal visit. Remember it does not matter where buy how and this is a great church with great emotion coupled with the structure of history knowing others have shared prayers and emotion in this historical and great mediated church. This is one if three steeples that makes Frederick a great stop.

Thank Kehrha
