The pieces of jewelry in the church, which was built in 1766, include the pulpit and the altar, which were made in stucco marble by the Swabian artist Christian Eitel. as well as Rococo cartridges on the long walls.
The well-known Silbermann organ on the gallery of the Alsatian organ builder, Johann Andreas Silbermann, is one of the most valuable pieces of equipment in the church. Concerts by famous composers took place in the church.
Historians assume that it is the third or fourth church in the same location. The predecessor church was probably built in 1580. In 1763, it is said to have been demolished due to tightness and dilapidation. After a three-year construction period, the baroque church was built, which was dedicated to the triune God on October 28, 1766. The tower inscription “DEO TRIUNI 1766” reminds of this.
In 1999 the storm “Lothar” caused considerable damage to the church. Many donations of money and the sympathy of the whole village made a renovation possible.
