    Established on December 1, 1889, this congregation began with five charter members. Led by the Rev. H. Siegfried, the church was organized with the help of Fort Worth pastors Thomas L. Mueller and C.F. Bauman. The congregation was originally named St. Paul's German Evangelical Church and served a predominantly German-speaking membership. A German Presbyterian congregation already in existence in Dallas merged with St. Paul's, and the Presbyterian church building was moved to a site at the corner of Texas and Florence streets to serve the new congregation. The Rev. Mr. Siegfried was succeeded by the Rev. J. Jans in 1893. The Rev. Theophile Tanner led the congregation from 1895 to 1909, and he was succeeded by the Rev. Albert Romanowski, who served until 1935. A new sanctuary was built in 1912 to serve the growing congregation. Worship services were conducted solely in the German language until World War I. The name was changed to St. Paul's Evangelical and Reformed Church in 1934. This site was acquired in 1953, and a new sanctuary was completed in 1957. Instrumental in establishing new congregations in the area, St. Paul's continues to serve the community.
