Biographical or historical data
The organization of the Lutheran group associated with Frieden's Church in Shenandoah County was believed to be 1806. The organization of the Reformed group is unknown. In 1822, property was deeded to both denominations jointly for use as a schoolhouse and for worship. The building soon proved inadequate, however, and a new church was constructed in 1824 and consecrated by ministers of both denominations and an English Presbyterian clergyman. Joint ownership continued until 1868 when the Reformed members withdrew and merged with the Reformed congregation of Brook Union Church. The Lutheran congregation continued to use Frieden's Church until 1875, when it was replaced by St. Mathews Church.
