Established in 1863.

In 1863, a group led by Herman Krueger, the sexton of St. Peter’s Cemetery already established on Lucas and Hunt Road in St. Louis County, asked the St. Peter’s Evangelical Church in St. Louis City for permission to establish a mission church to serve members who lived near the cemetery. The church agreed and also provided funding so a year later, the new congregation built a red brick building on a section of land taken from the northeast edge of the cemetery. In 1869, this congregation became the Concordia German Evangelical Church. In 1889, they changed their name to St. Peter’s and in 1938, they built a new church in Normandy, across the street from the cemetery. That church remained open until 1980 when the building was sold.
