Before the current building there were already two predecessor buildings, from whose time also the neighbouring cemetery originates. The first church building was established thereby 1698. This building was destroyed 1776 by a fire. The building of the second building began 1788. This building broke down in the winter 1838/1839 under the load of the snow.
