Inscription.  The first Lutherans in and around Brunerstown, now Jeffersontown, were early settlers from Va., Md., Pa., and N.C. Samuel Mau, licensed to preach in Kentucky in 1789, served German-speaking churches in Jeffersontown, Nelson County, and Danville until 1800. The German pioneers built a small log church in 1796.

From 1816 until 1833, the Lutherans shared a union church with Baptists, Presbyterians, and Methodists. Henry Kurtz, first pastor to preach in English, confirmed 32 persons in 1818. In 1833 the new Lutheran church was built beside Jeffersontown Cemetery where it remained for 124 years.
