On February 16, 1958, Westminster Presbyterian Church of Arlington held its first worship service at South Davis Elementary School, led by organizing pastor Joe Russell. On Easter Sunday 1960, the first service in the present sanctuary was held. A stand-alone, temporary educational building was added in 1968, built by members and named for John Omvig, an elder and LTV test pilot who died in the line of duty.

In 1977, both buildings underwent renovation. At that time, the stained glass windows at the front of the sanctuary, designed by Alan Farquhar, and based on Psalm 121, were installed. In 1983, the congregation commissioned Ross King, of Fort Worth, to build and install a custom, 17- rank pipe organ. The organ case is designed to complement the stained glass.

In 1996, a major capital expenditure campaign was undertaken to totally reconstruct the church school building and add a large fellowship hall, kitchen, and pass through to connect all to the two buildings. The facility was dedicated in September of 1997. About the same time, the playground was installed. The covered patio, picnic tables and grills were added later.

In 2000, a group of dedicated church ladies lovingly crafted the exquisite banner on the back wall over a two year period. It is based on London’s Westminster Abbey Coat of Arms and is an expression of the beauty, majesty and glory of God.

In 2011, we took on a major renovation because of a broken pipe that flooded the main building. We reconfigured the chancel and position of the pews, making space to add a Media Center and new sound system.
