Our congregation dates from September 1961, when a group of local Presbyterians met at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Marshall to discuss plans for a Presbyterian Church in Clemmons. On October 1, 1961 this group became a chapel of First Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem.
On January 7, 1962, 61 worshipers gathered at the Clemmons Civic Center for the first service. A focal point of the room was a slightly irreverent deer head mounted over the pulpit which the ingenious Presbyterians hid on Sundays with cloth covered panels. That same year saw the calling of the church’s first pastor, the Reverend Thomas Bagnal.
In 1964 the congregation voted to build a church at the current location on U.S. Highway 158 and the first service was held in the new church on December 6, 1964. That same year a choir was formed under the leadership of Mrs. Martha Jenkins.
As our programs expanded and membership grew, we added an education building and two outside storage buildings in the 1980s and 1990s. A building committee was formed in 1999 to lead the congregation in the construction of a new sanctuary building. In April of 2005, the first service was held in our new sanctuary. In November of 2006, we added beautiful stained glass windows to our worship space. With seating of both pews and chairs, the sanctuary can hold from 225 to almost 400 worshippers. Featuring a center aisle and lofted wood ceiling, the sanctuary has the same Celtic cross prominently displayed that graced the old sanctuary.
