A small number of German Lutherans gathered in Richmond to found St. Marks Lutheran Church in the year of 1869.
At that time two other Lutheran congregations were in the city worshiping in the German language.
Members in 1876 of the fledging congregation changed their name to First English to show that they were committed to ministry in language of this country.
New church was built at Stuart circle on Monument avenue in 1911.
