Our church has a long history of service in Berks County. Organized in 1730 by the itinerant pastor John Casper Stoever, its first services were held in homes or barns until the first dedicated church building was constructed near the banks of the Northkill creek in the 1740s. The first Lutheran synod in North America was formed in 1748, and Friedens was one of the original 10 congregations. The church is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and its present synod (Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod) has its home office in Allentown PA.
