History

The Presbytery of Baltimore foresaw the need for a congregation in the Westminster area in the mid-1950s.  Mrs. Robert L. (Phyllis) Jones, a local Presbyterian, invited those interested to an initial meeting on February 7, 1958, which was held at the Carroll County Office Building.  At that meeting it was decided to make a survey to assess interest in a new Presbyterian congregation and where to locate it.

 

On July 17, 1958, the Board of Missions of Baltimore Presbytery met and approved the purchase of the Jeanette/Bennett property on Washington Road.  Settlement on the property occurred September 24, 1958.

 

The first worship service was held in the estate house November 2, 1958, and was led by Dr. Frederick Jenkins, General Presbyter.  April 5, 1959, the Rev. John W. Thomson assumed the duties as the first pastor.

 

The first congregational meeting was April 1, 1960, selecting the church name and electing the first officers.  The church was formally organized at 4:30 p.m. on April 3, 1960, with 70 Charter Members.

 

Thus began what was to become the First Presbyterian Church of Westminster.
