Between 1820-1823 the administration assigned land that had been owned by the government to Lutheran craftsmen and cloth workers who had come to Przedecz.
Initially the religious center of the area had been Groß Neudorf.
The Russian Emperor Alexander I. donated land to the Lutheran community to build a church. The ruins of the castle of the Teutonic Order, the Moosburg, was also part of the donation. The tower, that had been built by the last Starost of Przedecz, Jakob Sigismund Kretkowski, was used as bell tower. The church was built beside the bell tower in 1827.
