In 1830 the Town of Gyoma resettled Germans next to the Hungarian population in order to rise to the rank of a market-town and thus have the right to open a market. The German settlers received parcels with gardens in the so-called “German district” free of charge. The churches and schools received free building sites from the squire and also land to be cultivated to support themselves in the Német-zug. The newly-formed Lutheran Congregation of Gyoma got its own pastor. The construction of the building was finished and consecrated in 1862 by the Germans migrated here from Mezőberény, Szemlak and Vadkert. The whole furnishing had been completed, the bells cast and installed when in 1887 the church tower took fire. The roof and interior of the church burnt out and had to be rebuilt. It was finished by 1888 and the church was consecrated again. In the garden of the Lutheran Church there are two memorials displayed. One plaque is erected for the memory of the slave-laborers deported to the Soviet Union and of those fallen in World War II. The other one is placed for our brethren who died a glorious death between 1914 and 1918 in World War I.
