The First Polish Evangelica Congregation of Christ the Lord was founded in 1904 as a Missouri Synod Polish Lutheran congregation. It was also the last of any Polish Lutheran congregations in America to hold a Polish-language service.

This book is a celebration of the people who were instrumental in the founding and development, as well as those who answered the call to minister to their spirtiual needs. It is this testament to faith that created, nourished and sustained them as they heard the word of God in their native tongue.
