The reformed church of Luna de Sus was probably built in the 13th century by Catholic Saxon colonists. After several transformations he got to the present look, preserving some original parts. The southern portal has been preserved in the original version.

By the time the Reformers took over the church, they dismantled the vaulted ceiling, and whitewashed all the walls. The church tower was built in 1802. The ceiling of 120 (8x15) color painted cassettes, the choir and the decor of the banks were made by Umling Lőrinc in 1752.

Almost every box of the giant ceiling is unique, the decorations contain floral motifs or themed drawings. On the central emblem of the pulpit crown can be deciphered the year 1750.

The organ was made in 1826 in Oradea, probably in the workshops of the famous Orszagh factory. In the same year the choir where the instrument was mounted was built.

At the entrance of the church the visitor's eyes are attracted by colorful frescoes. These were discovered under the lime in 2009 by the art historian Weisz Attila. Restoration work began two years later, Kiss Lóránd in 2011 brought up these paintings, after which the money was over. Works have been suspended, will resume when funds are available.
