This congregation, organized in October of 1880, held services in a schoolhouse about five miles northwest of Syracuse in Otoe County, Nebraska, until its church building was completed a year later, located on Poplar between Third and Fourth Streets. In the early 1890s a parsonage was acquired, and in 1898 a schoolroom was added to the church. The first pastor was the Rev. C. Naumann. Services were conducted in the German language until the mid-1930s. In 1972 the congregation was disbanded, and the building became the Otoe County Museum of Memories.
