      A Sunday School, made up of members of St. Paul's who were unhappy with the pastor, Rev. F.W. Bindemann, was organized on November 2, 1862 by the Rev. C.F.A. Kaessmann of the Canada Synod. The formal organization of the congregation was on January 1, 1863, and on January 19, 1863 a decision was made to build a church. One quarter of an acre of land was purchased from Augusta Krug (for $178.50). The cornerstone was laid by the pastor, Rev. Kaessmann, on April 26, 1863, and on July 19th of the same year the new church was dedicated. Rev. J. Fishbein, president of the Canada Synod, presided at the dedication service.1a

  • Notes 
    • Shantz Station Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church

      As the congregation was not organized until 1860, Lutherans from the area worshipped at the Lutheran Church in Preston from c.1855. Rev. Immanuel Wurster of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Preston, conducted the first service in Shantz Station on February 5, 1860 in a school about one mile west of the community. Formal organization of the congregation was on March 25, 1860 by Rev. Wurster. A church was built two years later in 1862 on a half acre of land (German Company Tract, part lot 85) donated by John Galt of the Canada Company. There were 58 charter members listed as of 1862. Of interest is the fact that the church once had a steeple. It was demolished in an electrical storm in 1904 and was rebuilt only to be destroyed again in 1930 by lightning. It was not rebuilt after that.

      In 1885 the congregation split from the Canada Synod and joined the Missouri Synod, only to return to the Canada Synod in the spring of 1891. From 1912-1934 Trinity was served by pastors and students from Waterloo College. Rev. Otto Lincke of the College was pastor from 1912-1919, students preached from 1919-1922, and Rev. Professor Henry L. Henkel also from Waterloo College was pastor from 1922-1934. The congregation was joined in a parish with St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Guelph from 1937-1981, and has been on its own since that association ended in 1981.

      Pastors who followed Rev. Wurster (1860-1869) were Revs. C.F.A. Kaessmann (February 1869 to October 1869), Hermann Sagehorn (1869-1872), Immanuel Wurster, for the second time (1872-1885), and Peter Andres (1885-1890).1a
