I greet you in the precious name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.  We celebrate more than 140 years of ministry to the glory of God here at Woodlawn Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)  We are "JOYOUSLY CELEBRATING OUR PAST; PRAYERFULLY ANTICIPATING OUR FUTURE."

In celebration, we reflect on the past and with prayers on our lips we look to the future with great anticipation that the same God who has guided us in the past will continue to guide us in the future.  The faith of our founders who first met in the home of Elder John W. Onley and his wife, Mary J. R. Onley, February 10, 1870 was based on their prayers and hopes for the future.  Thanks be to God for their faith and for the faith that has been kept alive for more than 140 years.  It was surely a faith that wherever two or three are gathered in the name of the Lord that the Lord would surely be in the midst.  Hundreds have followed in this way of faith and service.

As we celebrate this wonderful past and prayerfully look to the future, may our faith be strong and our love for God be shown in our love for each other and in our service in the community.
