History of Our Church
The church was first organized on October
11, 1870as a Congregational Church. Worship was held, for some time, in what was then the United Presbyterian Church. The first pastor was Rev. C. H. Eaton.
15, 1912, by a vote of the congregation, the name was changed from First Congregational Church of New Windsor to the People's Church. On October 19, 1919, at the request of the members of the People's Church and the Methodist Episcopal Church, a special meeting of the Presbytery of Rock River was called. The present church was organized - First Presbyterian Church of New Windsor. A congregational meeting was held on March 1, 1920and Rev. Charles E. Hoff was called to serve as pastor of the newly formed church.
