In 1932, the Lutheran congregation in Gbin (or Gombin) celebrated a four-day festival to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the inauguration of the church building and, at the same time, the centenary of the introduction of the first pastor of the congregation.
On this occasion, the then pastor of the community, Bruno Gutknecht, published a chronicle in Polish language.
In the same year he published a sequence of essays in German language, describing the history of the community and the Jubilee feast. This had been published in his own church paper, the "Weichselbote".
Both texts naturally overlap, but they also complement each other. Therefore both texts should be reproduced here.
The Polish-language chronicle was translated into German by Ms. Christine Nabitz-Vogel and was used with her friendly permission for the digitized version of the text.
