Lutheran Church in Kremenchug photo number 1082

In 1828, the German society in Kremenchuk opened a church on Veselaya Street No. 23 (a Lutheran church – a wooden structure in the Gothic style). Under her in 1831, a Lutheran one-class German parish school was founded. The law teacher at this school was Pastor Evgeny Karlovich von Flidner.

Funds for the maintenance of the school Kirche let go throughout the entire time of its existence, right up to the revolution. It is known that in 1889/1890, 16 boys and 11 girls studied at the school.

For the maintenance of this educational institution, the German church allocated 405 rubles. The Lutheran Church also had a committee called the Society for Aiding the Poor Germans, chaired by Maria Augustovna von Flidner.
