The church erected in 1866 was replaced by a new church constructed and dedicated in June 1883. (The roof structure of this church has been embodied in the present day St. Paul's church). Plans were drawn up for the building of a church measuring 40 feet by 25 feet. It was built by F. Gentner, and without lining cost 155. The lining and gallery were added in 1905 at the cost of 42. The church was opened and dedicated to God by Pastors Langebeeker and Haussmann on May 12, 1895.
