All the small churches built in the Schuler area were spearheaded by men and women of conviction. Here five miles west and three miles south of Schuler, Alberta, history was repeating itself. In 1918 Frederick Jacober and Jacob Martz led the way and established one more place to worship that was close to the pioneers’ homes. Mr. Jacob Martz donated the one acre needed to build the church. The first pastor at this church was Reverend Krieger. The Congregational Matthaus Cemetery is located on east side of Range Road 23, a good graveled grade. Church records indicate that 36 burials took place here. There are only four graves with markers, three have legible inscriptions. As at August 30, 1996, the grass at the cemetery had not been cut in a long time, but the fence was in good shape.
