Inscription.  

Upon this site was built the first church in Bangor. It served our worthy ancestry as church and school until 1883 when its last pastor, David Henning, who is interred in the adjacent cemetery, deeded the property to the Lutherans. God has been worshipped on this spot for 171 years in unbroken devotion.

"Look unto the rocks from whence ye are hewn:
to the hole from which ye are dug."
Isaiah 51:1.

 
Erected 1975.
