This congregation was founded by the Rev. Franz Picker, who left Holy Ghost Church with a faction of its membership. If an early record for this church is not found, it might possibly be located in Holy Ghost Church records.
Cemetery: Independent German Evangelical Protestant Cemetery (also known as New Picker's) was established near Gravois and Kingshighway in 1856. The congregation sold it in 1978, when it became known as Gatewood Gardens. It was taken over by the City of St. Louis in 1981.
