HISTORICAL NOTE

In 1915 a group of families led by Rev. J.F. Grove decided to withdraw from the Zion Congregational Church and form a fourth German Congregational Church in the newly developing area of southwest Lincoln. The new church was named the German Ebenezer Evangelical Congregational Church and was accepted into the Nebraska Congregational Conference. A building was constructed on the southeast corner of 8th and B Streets. All services and activities were conducted in the German language until English was introduced in the 1930s. Not until the 1950s was the use of German eliminated completely.
