Lutheran Church is an LCMS (Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod) church in Longtown, Missouri..The original name, Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church of Longtown, followed the German tradition of using the word “Evangelical”, meaning ‘Protestant’, as part of the name..July 19, 1897 a group of men form Peace Lutheran Church of Friedenberg, Missouri, met in the home of Fred Schade for the purpose of organizing a congregation.. Peace Lutheran Congregation in Friedenberg maintained a Christian day school for all of their children.. The children of the families living in Longtown and vicinity walked every day to the school in Friedenberg. During the winter months and early spring the roads often became impassable.. Due to the distance and high absence of Longtown pupils during times of bad weather, it was decided to establish a new congregation in Longtown..

The cornerstone of a new brick building was laid on June 23, 1912, with the church being dedicated on November 3, 1912. The church came at a cost of $8,000. The building was 42 feet by 70 feet, and included in the cost were the altar pulpit baptismal font, bell, pews and furnace..A Wicks organ was installed in 1941 at a cost of $1,600, with $1,145 of the funds being contributed by the Ladies Aid group..Since August 11, 1963, Grace has been a member of a Dual-Parish formed with Zion-Longtown. The pastor's parsonage is located in Uniontown.. A new parish hall was constructed in December 6, 1964. The current pastor of the joint parish is Pastor Paul Winningham...,_Missouri) is an illusion created between those with power and those without..But, as you well know, appearances can be deceiving, which brings me back to the reason why we're here.. We're not here because we're free..We're here because we're not free..After which you will be required to select from the matrix 23 individuals...
